Hugh McCarthy & Associates has been in business for more than 30 years and are proud of our many happy clients across multiple terrains, scales and Industries.
We have been with HMCA since Day 1. Apart from doing all of the things you expect from a professional accountancy practice, they also go the extra mile in taking a proactive interest in our company, providing invaluable advice at every major crossroads we come to.
Our relationship with HMCA started prior to the company foundation and we have been with them ever since. HMCA have been there every step of the way providing us with invaluable guidance and advice and we regard them as part of the team.
We’re one of HMCA’s older clients and they’ve been of tremendous assistance to us as we restructured the business to hand it over to the next generation of the family. We can’t recommend them highly enough.
HMCA have provided us with invaluable guidance and advice and we regard them as a valued partner rather than just a professional service provider
In our business, we have dealings with some of the biggest companies in the world in the US, Europe, Asia and Brazil. So when it comes to choosing an accountancy partner, we need to know that the same international best practices are in place. With HMCA, we have absolutely no doubts in that regard.
We’ve been with HMCA for fifteen years and love the intimate service that we get from another family business. Nothing is too much trouble and HMCA has been our staunchest provider through good times & bad.
HMCA have acted for us for the last 3 years and they’ve helped us to navigate all the major changes in our business including completely restructuring it. We trust their judgement implicitly.
