ABOUT

Taking care of your administration and business, so you don’t have to.

Mushroom was founded by a group of accountants, solicitors and successful entrepreneurs who were fed up with the absence of adequate support for start-ups and established SMEs, when they need help and guidance. We are here to provide no-nonsense advice and day to day administration support for your business needs. Rather than being left in the dark trying to find the right professional services, we are here to provide you with the help and guidance you really need.
Importantly, we can give you the one thing that all small business owners need and value the most – more time. Perhaps this will allow you to focus on why you set your business up in the first place, to either work on growing your business or to make the most of the time you have available to you.
So don’t get bogged down with the things you’d rather not be doing – let us take care of the administrative tasks and provide specialist advice when you need it, so you can become more productive, pro-active and profitable.
