Exchange Accountants in Belfast has announced plans to expand following a merger with Lisburn-based practice Fitzmaurice McConville and Co.
The new company will continue to trade as Fitzmaurice McConville and Co, from its current office at Oakmont House in Lisburn with director Malachi McConville remaining at the helm.
Malachi McConville, who co-founded Fitzmaurice McConville with then business partner Michael Fitzmaurice in October 1997 said joining forces with Exchange Accountants is a “very important chapter in history” for the firm.
He said: “For our loyal client base, it’s very much business as usual and we will continue to provide a first-class service with a personal touch, but now with access to the additional resources and expertise of Exchange Accountants, especially in the area of cloud accounting as technology is certainly changing how the accountancy profession works.”
Exchange Accountants was established in 2011 and was the first accountancy practice in Northern Ireland to be recognised as a Gold Partner cloud accounting software provider, Xero.
Director of business development at Exchange Accountants, Conor Walls, added: “I am delighted to welcome Fitzmaurice McConville and Co into the expanding Exchange Accountants portfolio, and we look forward to building a long-lasting relationship with the company, its staff and clients.
“This merger will have significant benefits for both of our companies, as well as increasing our workforce and growing our client base.”
