Mags Bookkeeping and Office Management Solutions was started in 2009 by Magali Lovell-Pascal. After working for several large blue chip companies over a number of years, Magali went to work for a small company in North Wales, it was here that she saw and recognised the need for many small companies to have somebody to do the bookkeeping and office work on an ‘as needed’ basis.
Mags decided to use her expertise to set up her own company offering bespoke bookkeeping and office management services to small and medium businesses in North Wales, particularly the Flintshire and Denbighshire areas.
In October 2012 Mag’s husband created a company offering business analysis specialising in data and management information. As the activities of the two companies started to cross paths, in 2013 they decided to merge them into one Limited company – Phil Lovell Associates Ltd. T/A Mags Bookkeeping & Office Management Solutions.
We can help
Every business, no matter how small, is required by law to ‘keep books’. This involves the recording of the financial transactions of the business, whether manually into ledgers or entering everything onto a computer software program e.g. excel or sage accounting but there is much more that a business needs to do.
To a small business owner who is juggling multiple roles on a daily basis, time is the most precious commodity. From covering multiple jobs roles and managing your employees to trying to stay ahead of the competition and make a profit….it’s an almost impossible task but that’s where we can help.
We will work closely with you to identify your specific needs, whether it is as simple as a couple of hours bookkeeping each month or as complex as setting up the most efficient and effective management of your office and staff, setting up your computerised accounts and providing training to your staff to use it.
We will provide the bookkeeping and office support you need to give you more time and to help your business move forward.

Why use a bookkeeper?
A bookkeeper can lower your overheads. Paying an accountant to do your bookeeping can be an expensive way to get the job done. We can work with your accountant allowing them to focus on any specialised work for you.
