Accounting services Donegal

Accounting Services


We provide a comprehensive accounts building service to audited and non-audited entities ranging from sole traders, partnerships, limited partnerships, joint ventures and audit exempt companies



The majority of companies in Ireland are below the statutory audit threshold and therefore are not compelled to get an audit report for their statutory accounts. However, apart from large companies who exceed the thresholds and companies limited by guarantee, medium and smaller companies may also choose to get an audit, whether it be for peace of mind, a requirement of the bank, for a creditor or another stakeholder.

We can provide cloud-based accountancy packages which allow you to instantly access accounts, from whatever device they happen to be on, 24/7. Our cloud service enables real time access and easy collaboration. So, for example, you or your staff could enter the invoice information into the system and we can then review this, reconcile your bank account and prepare the VAT return and accounts.
