I set up the practice in 2009 working from a home office and since then we have expanded to have two offices, a team of 10 staff and a wide variety of clients and services. We work with clients ranging from convenience stores, construction, farming, jockeys and race horse trainers right down to start up SME’s. We are constantly challenging and developing our business whilst maintaining a high quality service with strong customer focus. In 2015 we developed a new cloud based software designed for SME’s and during that period we also donated over 100 hours to three charities which saved them in the region of €25,000 through fundraising and cost saving measures, these are projects are not only interesting but shows the diversity of experience within the practice, social responsibility with the charity work was a new initiative in 2015 which has been very well received from the charities involved.
