Meet the Team
MJP prides itself on having a very professional and approachable team who can handle every aspect of your property and service charge accounts. MJP aims to deliver quick, efficient and cost effective services whilst adhering to the highest professional and ethical standards.
John Dwyer B.COM FCA
John established MJP in 2014 to meet the demand for an independent qualified practising accountant who could focus purely on the residential property sector.
With over 25 years’ experience in real estate and asset management businesses, John knows the ins and outs of this sector and helps guide owners and their residential property managers through the maze of accounting, tax and compliance related issues. He has a specialist knowledge of how best to produce and present rent charge and service charge accounts and, as a Chartered Accountant holding a Practising Certificate, is able to provide “certification” of annual accounts.
He, and the team, work with property owners and their managing agents to provide their clients, whether leaseholders, freeholders and/or boards of directors, all the necessary financial reports they need including HMRC and Companies House filings.
John is also a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW).
If you are a property owner or residential manager, John and his team at MJP are the people to work with.
Outside of work, John can be found playing tennis and gardening. He also loves to travel. His favourite song is Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol and his favourite album is Breakfast in America by Supertramp. By his own admission, when able to relax, he is most likely to be seen sitting on a sunny terrace with a glass of wine in hand!
