Paul Farrell FCCA, CPA
Qualified as an ACCA in 1985 and became a member of the CPA Institute in 1995. He joined W.O.McGrory & Company in 1985 and became a Partner in 1988. Paul works closely with all our clients to ensure that their specific and changing business needs are taken care of. In the Practice we work with start-up businesses right the way through to second-generation family firms. A high percentage of our work these days is carried out at the client’s premises or remotely by logging in to client’s accounting systems.
Our experience shows that new and existing clients get better value for money when they keep in touch with their Accountant – run any business issues by us first – get it right rather than sorting our tax or other consequences after the event.
We are your trusted Financial Advisor and we take a hands on approach to helping your business succeed – we are available to meet when it suits you – in your office if it suits you or by email or phone.
If suitable for your business you can have a qualified Accountant visit for 1 day a month or quarter which gives the client all the expertise they need without any onerous employer costs or commitments.
