Who We Are

Quite simply, we’re unique. Of course there are other companies out there who are innovation-focused. But we’re the only professional services business specialising in all aspects of innovation.

What does this mean for you? We’ll use our experience and expertise to cover your everyday business needs — all the mundane but necessary stuff like accounts, logistics, recruitment, payroll and dealing with HMRC. This will leave you with the time and head space to innovate, and move your business forward.

Our Story

From humble beginnings

In 2004, accountant and sportsman, Michael Price, was involved in a car accident. Between the many operations that followed, Mike spent his time learning the new Research & Development (R&D) Tax legislation that had been introduced a year earlier. From his hospital bed, the idea for Michael Price Associates (MPA) was born. And in 2007 it became a reality.
