Accountancy firms Crowleys DFK and Anne Brady McQuillans DFK have announced they are to merge on 1 January 2020.

The amalgamated firm, which will operate under the Crowleys DFK name, will see Anne Brady McQuillans partners Natalie Kelly and Niall Grant, along with their team of 22 staff, move to Crowleys DFK’s Dublin office at College Green.

The enlarged firm will have annual fee income of c. €8 million, 110 staff and ten partners.

James O’Connor, managing partner of Crowleys DFK, commented: “When initial discussions began between the two firms, we quickly saw a distinct alignment both in the benefits of what our combined service offering would bring to our clients and the cultural fit for our staff.

“And with the creation of 40 new jobs in Dublin and Cork over the next two years in areas such as Internal Audit, IT Audit, Risk Management, Advisory, Cloud Accounting, Public Sector Services and Tax, the merger allows us evolve to meet the growing needs of our collective national and international clients.”

Natalie Kelly said: “We are delighted with this merger, which will offer clients increased strength and depth across many areas of expertise and will enable us to develop new services and specialisms. Similarly, our staff will have the opportunity to further develop their careers and to gain knowledge in a range of sectors.”

Founded 44 years ago, Crowleys DFK has a client base that includes indigenous owner-managed businesses, and subsidiaries and European headquarters of overseas SME and multinational companies. Anne Brady McQuillans evolved in 2005 when Anne Brady merged with McQuillans. The firm has a strong SME sector client base.

Both firms are members of DFK International, the international association of independent accounting firms spanning 92 countries.
