Who are we?

Well firstly, let us address some misrepresentations – we are not boring – we don’t simply count beans! We are different! Why? Because LMJ Accountants & Business Advisors are a dynamic firm of accountants with a clear focus on providing our clients with refreshing top class financial services to the SME market. We understand that our clients’ businesses are operating in an ever-changing economy and furthermore we understand that these challenges may change again in the very near future. We believe that the role of your accountant should also move with the times and that is why we offer our clients more than just the traditional services of an accounting firm.

Why Chose LMJ Accountants & Business Advisors?

Our mission is simple – to make your business easier. We don’t feel this can be achieved with an annual meeting to present your financial statements or not being readily accessible to you when it matters most. We are interested in your business and its progression and that is why we believe that regular contact with our clients by phone, email or in person is of utmost importance.

We have a vast array of experience and knowledge to assist your business and help you get where you are going. We understand that your business is the most important thing to you and when you have a query you want it dealt with urgently and effectively. We therefore apply this knowledge and experience to ensuring that we can deal with your queries efficiently and effectively.

Recent years have seen significant changes in Financial Reporting and Company Law requirements and we invest significantly in keeping up to date with these changes.


Our approach to pricing is easy and transparent. We apply an hourly rate, applicable to the complexity of the situation, and combine it with the level of time it takes to complete the work. We agree this in advance of any work commencing along with the work to be completed. If additional work is required, we will discuss it with you and agree it in advance. We don’t believe in any nasty surprises!

We understand that an annual bill can be a challenge for some organisations to manage. As such, we offer our clients the option of paying their bills in instalments that suit them.

Principal Profile

Barry Smyth BBS ACA


Barry is the founder and Managing Partner of LMJ Accountants & Business Advisors. Having completed a Batchelor of Business Studies, he began working in the Taxation division of a medium sized accounting firm whilst completing his Institute of Chartered Accountants exams before moving to the SME market in senior financial roles such a Financial Controller & Group Finance Director. During his 15 years working within the SME market, Barry gained an extensive insight into what makes a business a success and the various external and internal factors that constantly challenge a business.

Some of the industries in which Barry has gained his experience include:

  • Construction – Sales & Distribution
  • Waste Management
  • Recruitment – Catering & Services Industry
  • Motor Industry
  • Manufacturing
  • Printing Industry
  • Security/Cleaning


He’s a big fan of anything on wheels, though his 3 children have meant that passion will have to be put on the back burner for a few years. We guess he will have to wait a few more years for the red convertible since his girls are all under 10 – though he says wouldn’t change them for any car…we believe you Barry!

Our success is your success.
