ND Audit & Advisory is a boutique professional services firm, established in 2021 by Noel Delaney, with offices in Portlaoise and Dublin. Having spent 24 years with a top five firm in Dublin, progressing from trainee to Partner, Noel decided to branch out and start his own firm closer to home. In a professional services environment, it is becoming clear that it is less about location and more about the quality of the service, people and trusted relationships.
As a boutique firm, without the costly infrastructure of some of the larger firms, we can afford to spend more time, at senior level, with you and can deliver cost effective solutions without compromising on standards and expertise. We strive to cultivate strong relationships with our clients and offer a fresh perspective when needed, often becoming invested in their successes. We pride ourselves on going the extra mile for our clients and endeavor to exceed their expectations. Our aim is to become the trusted advisor of choice to our clients regardless of the size, type, or scale of the services or advices required.
Our main service offerings include Audit & Assurance, Company Secretarial, Taxation Services, Business Advisory, Outsourced & Accounting Solutions, Corporate Finance and International Services. We have a young, dynamic and innovative team who service a varied client base from sole traders and family run businesses to charities and not-for-profit organisations as well as corporate entities.
We are passionate about what we do and have ambitious, innovative plans to continually grow our business and expand our service offerings over the coming years in Ireland and abroad.
