About

Our Story

PMK Accountancy Services was established in 2005 by Managing Director, Paddy McKeown as a sole trader and has now grown to a team of 17 and is a leading edge accountancy practice, providing a friendly and professional accountancy service to businesses throughout the island of Ireland.   

To advise – we must first understand.  At PMK we do understand. Our approachable team of qualified accountants and technicians have over 100 years of relevant experience across all sectors. Led by our senior team, we work with business owners to install bespoke internal controls, while designing and maintaining an internal accounts function that will provide timely and accurate management information. This gives peace of mind to business owners that not only are their statutory requirements under control; they are getting high quality and focused information to run their business. Our staff continuously receive training to ensure that they are completely up to date on accountancy, tax and sector knowledge, making sure that we keep you ahead of the game.

We help our clients to:

  • Understand the nuts and bolts of their business;
  • Identify the key drivers within their business and the level of return they’re achieving;
  • Make better use of IT systems/improve automation and efficiency;
  • Restructure their business where necessary to cut out poor performance and improve productivity.

We spend time getting to know the personal plans and ambitions of our clients, the business owners, so that we learn what their personal and business aspirations are and through careful planning and advice, help with achieving them.  

We focus on providing exactly the right service for our clients and their business and one that is tailored to their needs.

Our aim is to ensure that all our clients run their businesses compliantly, cost-effectively, profitably and tax efficiently.

By practising what we preach, our own business has grown considerably in recent years, resulting in a move to our current office where we have grown PMK team from 5 members in 2013 to our current compliment of 17. 

At PMK Accountancy Services, we help businesses of all sizes from small sole traders to SME’s.  We have developed expertise in a number of core sectors and we are recognised as a leading advisor in the retail market by the three main independent retailer wholesalers Henderson Food Service, Musgrave Retail Partners and NISA. 

We also provide accounting, taxation and consultancy services for the construction, manufacturing, dental, legal, agricultural, transport & logistics and property sectors.  

Being open, honest, respectful and acting with integrity at all times is indicative of how we do business.  We provide financial information and consultations in a friendly professional manner.  

When you partner with us you can be certain of sound, qualified advice based on years of experience, regardless of your size, the type of business you operate or the level of support you need from your accountants.  

Our Core Values guide everything we do in our business:

  • Family – you do business the same way you live your life. Family values determine the way in which business is done in PMK. We look after each other and our clients; we are welcoming, approachable and friendly at all times and maintain an ethos of positivity, enthusiasm and fun.
  • Professional – we deliver a high quality unique and bespoke service to our clients.
  • Loyalty – We are loyal to ourselves and our clients and focus on building and maintaining trusting, confidential and secure relationships with clients and colleagues.
  • Honesty and Integrity – Doing business honestly, being honest with each other, being respectful and sincere. We always try to do the right thing.
  • Reliability – We do what we say we are going to do every time! And we deliver what we promise every time!

Being truly honest with our clients can be challenging because we tell them what we think, rather than what we think they would like to hear which can sometimes be hard for them to accept. However, we have found in all cases that this is the best way for both our clients and for us to succeed, therefore we remain confident in our approach.
