Dublin accountancy firm Malone & Co have been named SME Accountancy & Tax Practice 2021 by the All-Ireland Business Foundation.
This is a fantastic achievement by Malone & Co who have been recognised for their performance, trust and customer-centricity.
Business All-Star Accreditation is an independently verified standard mark for indigenous businesses, based on rigorous selection criteria. The Accreditation is overseen by the prestigious All-Ireland Business Foundation, whose adjudication panel is chaired by Dr Briga Hynes of the University of Limerick and Kieran Ring, CEO of the Global Institute of Logistics.
Reacting to the announcement Practice Founder Damien Malone said: I am immensely proud and humbled that our practice has been recognised with this accreditation by the AIBF. Our business success is based around our very client-orientated philosophy, and I credit this prestigious accolade as independent, credible recognition of our experienced and loyal team who work tirelessly to serve our clients with the objectives of delivering value, achieving impact and maximizing the returns our clients get from their business.
Deputy Chair on the Adjudication Board Kieran Ring, said in support of the announcement: “Malone & Co has been named AIBF SME Accountancy & Tax Practice 2021. The Accreditation is in recognition of the company’s outstanding contribution to quality and standards in the fields of accountancy & tax practice.”
“We were particularly impressed with the entrepreneurial zeal of Damien Malone in expanding the practice over the last year. Furthermore, we wish to recognise Malone & Co’s conduct in the areas of trust, commitment, performance & customer centricity. Malone & Co is hereby included in the AIBF Register Of Irish Business Excellence for a second successive year.”
Managing Director of the All-Ireland Business Foundation Kapil Khanna said the Accreditation, which is now held by over 500 firms, is needed by the thousands of small and medium businesses which operate to their own standards, but have nothing to measure them by.
“We evaluate a company’s background, trustworthiness and performance, and we speak to customers, employees and vendors. We also anonymously approach the company as a customer and report back on the experience. The business goes through at least two interviews and is scored on every part of the process against set metrics.” he said.
The All-Ireland Business Foundation (AIBF) is an autonomous national accreditation body tasked with enterprise development and the promotion of Best-in-Class in Irish business.
The Foundation actively engages and supports its network through peer-dialogue, collaboration, mentoring and enterprise development activities. Companies are qualified for accreditation by completing an enterprise audit and are identified by their use of the AIBF’s Business All-Star Marque.
