Why did I set-up an Accounting Practice?

Posted 29/7/2016

For as long as I can remember I wanted to have my own business. I enjoy meeting people, am a good listener and am passionate about Irish business. What better way to combine these than set up my own positive “can-do” accounting practice “Mc Guigan & Co”.

I can use the skills that I have learned and developed through my career to date to help clients manage their business more effectively and reach their goals.

When Managing Director of Local Market Direct Ltd I met hundreds of small business owners, my goal at the time was to help them access the online market. I enjoyed my interactions with them and built some strong relationships. Many clients spoke to me about challenges that they were facing and it was clear that they did not have a good relationship with a trusted advisor that they could call on for guidance.

 My training in Ernst & Young and work in large multinationals such as Kerry Group, Trend Micro and Young & Rubicam means I have a good understanding of processes and controls for both financial and operational procedures. Many of these can be easily transferred and applied in small businesses.

The corporate finance experience I gained while in Horwath Bastow Charleton was invaluable to me when I worked as Finance Director in Capital Assets and when I set up Market Direct. I was involved in many company valuations, finance applications and prepared and reviewed hundreds of business plans as part of the Pinnacle BES (now EIS) Fund team. I also prepared property asset management plans both here and when in Capital Assets to help clients maximise the value of their property assets.

Many client/accountant relationships are based on contact once a year at tax deadline time. This is not what Mc Guigan & Co Chartered Accountants are about. As mentioned I am passionate about Irish Business and want to add value to my clients. While on-time and accurate submissions to Revenue are important I also want you to understand your numbers and how to possibly improve performance. This doesn’t mean added work for you, by using the latest accounting technologies we can help your business become more effective.
