Gary McHale, Co-Founder and Director, DSA Prospect
In episode thirteen, we are joined by the charismatic and commercially minded, Gary McHale, founder and director of DSA Prospect, an accountancy practice based in the heart of Oxfordshire that provides a fresh approach to accounting, advice and consultancy for owner-managed businesses and SMEs.
During the podcast, Gary explains his original purpose for starting up the business – to do right by clients and by their people. He says his team lives by the mantra that ‘the right decision is the right decision’, and how this approach has served them well, enabling them to grow the business 10 x over the last 10 years.
In particular, Gary and his team have built a USP around the transactional service they provide in preparing a business for sale, which involves maximising its value at the point of sale while optimising the tax position for the business owner. Gary offers great insight into this from a business owners’ point of view, providing a few nuggets of wisdom during the podcast, explaining how this can be a lifetime opportunity.
We also hear about the value of being dual-qualified in Accountancy and Law, and how this has enabled Gary to achieve his current levels of success, both for himself and his clients. For anyone looking to enter Accountancy or Law, or how to differentiate yourself from competitors, Gary’s story offers many useful insights. As you can imagine, his background also provides invaluable support for the trainees at DSA Prospect.
As is customary, we are privileged to hear the thoughts of a leading business owner and how he juggles a hectic family life with running a successful business. Gary tells us about the importance of exercise and how living in the countryside with pets is crucial in keeping a positive mindset and continually moving forward.
Tune in for a fantastic insight into a successful entrepreneur’s mindset, along with guidance on growing a team and a business, and some invaluable advice on selling and acquiring businesses.
