1933

Mr Malloch

Malloch McClean was established in 1933 when Mr Malloch set off on his bicycle around the countryside talking to farmers about the impending introduction of depreciation and the need for double entry accounting. His success depended on theirs, so Mr Malloch added value wherever he could. He went on to author books about farm accounting that has influenced a generation of accountants, economists and student.
