Accountancy firm Muldoon in ambitious growth plan

Muldoon & Co partners Sean Muldoon, Raymond Tiffney and Robbie Barr with their client Ruan Pienaar, the South African rugby star who will leave Ulster this summer to take up a three year contract with French Top 14 side Montpellier

BELFAST-based accountancy practice Muldoon & Co has celebrated its 25th anniversary by confirming plans to recruit 12 new staff to support its growth plans.

The company, which has offices in Mount Charles in Belfast, was established as a partnership in 1992 by Sean Muldoon and rebranded 10 years later as Muldoon & Co.

The practice has grown from a team of five at the time of the rebrand to 33 today, led by partners Sean Muldoon, Robbie Barr and Raymond Tiffney.

They said the practice plans to grow its team by an additional 12 people within the next 18 months, recruiting a mix of senior qualified chartered accountants as well as trainees across audit, tax and business advisory roles.

Robbie Barr said: “Our client base continues to increase, both locally and overseas. Our existing clients are capitalising on opportunities in the US and European markets which further increases opportunities for us as a practice.

“Growth has been facilitated by the recent doubling of our office space to encompass both 16 and 18 Mount Charles.”

Before his move to France this summer, Ulster and South Africa rugby star Ruan Pienaar, one of the practice's clients, paid a visit to the Muldoon & Co offices to meet staff, extolling the virtues of hard work as the key to his success.

And Muldoon & Co partner Raymond Tiffney says the same ethos is also at the core of the company's growth.

“We have an excellent team of people and we work hard to provide high quality advice and solutions for clients. A growing client base brings greater opportunities across all areas of our practice for people to advance and progress in their careers.

“As well as offering the core business services of an accountancy practice we are also involved in diverse high-level projects, from large audits of £100 million turnover companies to joint ventures between businesses in multiple jurisdictions and the provision of our payroll bureau to publicly listed companies.”

He added: “With increased regulatory requirements for new online tax filing with HMRC, efficiencies achievable from cloud based accounting and ever-evolving tax legislation, we anticipate continued demand for our services - particularly with businesses facing many uncertainties during the Brexit process.”
