My Accountant Friend

MAF provide online accountancy support. We provide assistance with their GoCardless payment system and keep their Ruby on Rails project up to date.

MAF takes care of all your accounts online, while giving you a dedicated accountant to talk to.


MAF approached tosbourn ltd to give assistance with their GoCardless payment system.

Unfortunately API changes happen, and if you don't have a dedicated tech team often you can't proactively protect against these changes.

We were in a fortunate position to have worked with GoCardless heavily on a recent project, so felt well placed to help quickly get MAF back taking payments.

Updating the Rails codebase to work with the latest GoCardless API required adding some relevant tests and changing out some Gems.

As part of this upgrade we noticed that other Gems are a bit behind where they needed to be. So as part of our service we provided some support with keeping their Ruby on Rails project up to date.

Tech Stack

Here is a non-exhaustive list of the technologies we've used in order to help My Accountant Friend;

  • Ruby
  • Ruby on Rails
  • GoCardless API
