Amplifi Solutions

Big company thinking for small businesses.

Let Us Help You

Wouldn't you like to know if you're entitled to some big financial benefits?

Like R&D Tax Relief for instance.
In some cases, small businesses like yours are simply unaware of complicated tax structures and how to tap into the benefits.

That's where we come in.
While your accountant will be a font of knowledge on 'all things accounts', we dig much deeper into this specialist area. Our years of financial and technical expertise within a multi-national PLC has taught us that, when it comes to tax, small businesses could be missing out on serious amounts of cash.

About Us

Meet the team

We’re Chris Maylin and Jeff Drennan.

We’re not your average accountants. While we will admit to eating, sleeping and breathing numbers, our main aim is to help SMEs to maximise their revenue and profits, benefiting not just the businesses in question, but the local economy in general.

We both have senior management-level technical and financial expertise, gained right here in Northern Ireland working for a multi-national PLC.

In April 2014, we spotted a gap in the market: an opportunity to specialise in what can be a complicated field.

About R&D Tax Credits

We currently work with a range of clients in Northern Ireland, Great Britain and beyond.

Chris Maylin BA (HONS) ACMA CGMA

Managing Partner

Chris has over 20 years of post-qualification experience working as a Management Accountant in BT Plc, a leading FTSE 100 company. During his time in BT Chris held many wide and diverse roles in the Finance organisation covering areas such as management accounting, investment appraisal and control, corporate finance, cost management, due diligence and most recently commercial finance, where he was focused on winning significant new public sector business for the company.

Since setting up Amplifi with Jeff, Chris has taken great pride in the value that they have been able to bring to the SME sector in Northern Ireland and beyond.

Away from the office Chris is keen on many sports and regularly plays 5-a-side football. He also tries to take part in his local Parkrun at least once a month. Despite previously being a Highbury season ticket holder, he has miserably failed to see Arsenal in any of the last number of seasons.

During his time in senior finance roles Chris has developed many key skills including:

  • Strategic commercial thinking and leadership
  • Creation of dynamic commercial structures to deliver key results
  • Organisational improvement
  • A commitment to learning from all engagements
  • Ability to work and lead virtual teams to successful conclusions
