KBG Accountants announces further expansion

KBG Accountants are delighted to announce further expansion by way of a merger with the long established firm of Kevin McIntyre & Associates, Certified Public Accountants, New Road, Bailieborough, Co Cavan. This expansion into Bailieborough will allow KBG have an additional base to service the very large number of clients in east Cavan, Louth, Meath and Monaghan and Dublin.

Kevin McIntyre says: “We have built solid relationships with our clients over 25 years and now with the expansion of KBG into Bailieborough we will provide these clients with further supports in all the core areas and offer additional specialist services. The additional resources of KBG will allow the Bailieborough office to grow and I am looking forward to working with KBG in the years to come.”

KBG, one of the largest accountancy firms in the midlands, already have offices in Cavan and Longford.

In business over 30 years, KBG boasts an experienced team of eight partners and over 40 employees.

Meet the partners

Paddy Keavney, founding partner set up the company in 1989, now known as KBG. Ciarán Brady joined Paddy in 1993, which subsequently led to him becoming a partner in 1998. Mark Reilly joined KBG in 1999 and became a partner in 2008.

Between them, Paddy, Ciarán and Mark have a wide range of experience from assisting business start ups to advising established businesses on sustainability.

In 2017 KBG expanded its management team with the addition of four new partners - Siobhán Brady, Bernice Clarke, Louise Quinn and Francis Mulderrig. In late 2021 they further enhanced the management team with the addition of another partner Cormac Smith.

All partners and their teams are committed to providing a high-quality service and have the knowledge and experience to understand their clients’ business needs. Paddy Keavney, founding partner of KBG, says: “We work hard and have invested many years building strong and trusted relationships with our clients.”

KBG provide accountancy, audit, tax, insolvency, company secretarial and advisory services to individuals and companies all over the country.

KBG are the only firm locally with a dedicated tax department, headed by their newly appointed tax director Fionnuala Leydon. Fionnuala joined the firm in May 2016 initially in the role of tax manager. The tax department specialises in succession planning, corporate cash extraction methods and various methods of reducing tax liabilities for small to large entities.

Ciarán Brady, partner in KBG says: “It is an exciting opportunity for us to grow the firm further. This growth will further enhance our reputation and status.”

Four-day week

KBG, a progressive and ambitious business introduced a four-day week in January this year, being the first business locally to implement this initiative.

This initiative “benefits team members by striking a better work/life balance offering more flexible and family friendly working hours” says Mark Reilly, partner in KBG.

“It is clear in the ever-changing labour environment, we have to think outside the box and make KBG a more attractive place to work to get ahead of the curve,” says Paddy.

KBG offers graduates and apprentices a unique training journey, providing hands on training, in order to gain broad and practical experience.

“We are delighted to announce this expansion and it’s the perfect next step for our business. We look forward to a strong and successful future,” says Ciarán.
