The practice was founded by Steve Marsland in April 2003 and initially traded as Marsland Associates.  Steve’s vision of offering a bespoke accountancy service to businesses and individuals proved to be an immediate success in the local area.  

At this stage, it was clear that Steve needed to find a like minded person to develop and realise the full potential of the business. He turned to former work colleague Zohan Nash and in December 2003 Marsland Nash Associates was born in a back room of Steve's home.

Zohan Nash, highly motivated with a wealth of experience, worked successfully with Steve to develop a unique Accountancy Practice. The drive and energy exuding from their combined efforts took the business from strength to strength. By February 2004, having outgrown Steve's backroom at home the pair opened a small office in Torbay.

It was evident from the start that their unique approach was exactly what the local market place needed.  Within a short space of time the Practice rapidly expanded beyond all expectations.

During the following years, the Practice continued to expand and recruit staff.  In 2008 the Practice moved to larger offices in Brunel Industrial Estate in Newton Abbot, having around 6 staff members at this time.  By 2014, we took over Torbay Accountancy and Bookkeeping Services (TABS) in Paignton, and opened a new fully refurbished office in that town.

Today we employ 13 staff, have a large Corporate, Business and Personal client base, and also have a dedicated Payroll and Bookkeeping bureau.  In April 2017 Nathan Murphy, who has been with us for many years, become an equal equity Director alongside Steve and Zohan.

We are now well placed to provide specialist and compliance services to all local businesses, and with our strong position with great resources, we are welcoming more new clients to our portfolio.
