Through boom and bust, BK has continued to help keep us profitable and they are a great source of positive encouragement. Nothing is too much trouble. I would recommend BK without hesitation to anyone in business or thinking of starting a business – BK is a firm of accountants who are professional, knowledgeable, experienced and who will go the extra mile.
The partnership with Seamus [Buckley Kiely & Co.], who was referred to me by my bank, began back in 1996 when I initially formed PCH International.
In the early years Buckley Kiely fulfilled the role of managing the setup and administration of the company, enabling me to focus on business development and the relationship grew on a needs basis from there. Although PCH is now a multi-national organisation we continue to maintain close involvement with Buckley Kiely and use their extensive experience and expertise. Their advice is invaluable as it is based on years of co-operation, integrity and success.

I first got to know Buckley Kiely while working for Trustev. Their coffee machine was the first thing to get my attention, but all joking aside I saw first-hand how having the right advice on a wide range of financial matters could seriously make the difference to the success of any startup. BK advised at every stage of financing for Trustev which ultimately led to one of the largest ever company acquisitions in Ireland. No matter where my path took me after that, I wanted to be sure to stay in contact with Buckley Kiely.
After about 8 months of meeting Fearghal [Collins, Partner at Buckley Kiely] for coffee to bend his ear with my ideas and having received tremendous support and advice from the team at BK, we were finally ready to go – along with business partner Dave Ronayne, chief executive of Irish Mainport Holdings and IBEC’s regional president for Cork, we launched Republic of Work in 2016. Buckley Kiely has been of tremendous support to us during our first year of business – I couldn’t imagine doing it without them.
If I were to start all over again, I would not hesitate for a second in engaging Buckley Kiely for another 40 years of service!
From a one-man-band to a fully-fletched orchestra – for almost 40 years, we have engaged Buckley Kiely & Co. as our accountant and business advisor. During that time, they have grown from strength to strength and have never backed away from any task given to them. They have always implemented the latest technology and employed top class human resources. In so doing, today they can deliver a full package of services required by any company and their employees.

When my mother fell ill and I was appointed as Power of Attorney over her finances, I needed an independent adviser to help decide where to invest her money to ensure that there is always sufficient finance to pay for her care.
I met Richard Fowler of Buckley Kiely Wealth Management who gave me great advice on the best options. This was invaluable to me as it gave me peace of mind, in particular, given the uncertainties with the Euro and the banks. Many advisers out there are not independent, whereas Richard provided independent fee- based advice on what was in my mother’s best interests. The service provided by Richard and his staff is excellent, very efficient and professional. I have no hesitation in recommending this service to anyone looking for professional, independent advice.
Movies @ Dundrum Ltd appointed Buckley Kiely to carry out an internal review of the efficiency of its Accounts Department in 2011.
Their work was carried out in a very professional and time efficient manner while at all times remaining sensitive to the potential concerns that such a review will raise for the personnel working in that department. The final report delivered by Buckley Kiely provided the Board with a number of key system and process improvement recommendations and a capacity and cost benchmarking assessment which have been the foundation for a restructuring of the department into a more cost and process efficient cost centre. The Board of Movies @ are grateful to Buckley Kiely and would highly recommend them.

I was delighted with the analysis completed on my pension. It gave me the opportunity to make positive decisions in my life.
It opened up many possibilities that I never knew I had, in fact, possibilities I thought I didn’t have or would ever have. It’s certainly worth having a consultation with Richard and Paul as they make things easy to understand. It has definitely changed my life for the better.

The idea behind BuiltInCork was to bring together Cork based people and companies who were all working towards the same goal of making a success of their business and provide them and each other with advice, ideas and support to help them achieve it.
Buckley Kiely was my first choice as accountant for BuiltInCork and they also provide financial support and advise to many of the startup members of the group.
In my second year of running my own pharmacy in Mitchelstown, I made the decision to move accountants to Buckley Kiely – one that I’ve never regretted.
I can say unreservedly that my experience has been a very good one.
Buckley Kiely are very professional while at the same time being very friendly and approachable. They have an excellent understanding of the pharmacy sector and have been instrumental over the years in helping to redevelop and modernise our business when required. Most recently they played a proactive role in the sale of the business, providing tax planning advice, dealing with due diligence and solicitors. The firm also provides sound, long-term financial advice. Buckley Kiely and I share our 40th anniversary as Seamus set up the business the same year that I qualified as a pharmacist, back in 1977 – I’d like to congratulate them on 40 years of excellent service.
Buckley Kiely have set up very detailed, customised Excel Reports for us, which has enabled us to evaluate profit margin by department.
This [Automated Business Reporting] has completely transformed our monthly financial reporting, making it fast, reliable and so much easier.
Having helped us to identify the information required to demonstrate how our business was performing, Buckley Kiely then set up Excel reports, linked to Sage, to display that information at the click of a button.
This has hugely reduced the time we spent creating reports each month and the information is now more reliable, accurate and comparable!
