‘Payac Services is a credit union owned shared services company responsible for the development and ongoing management of the only credit union Current Account offering in Ireland.

Payac engaged Crowleys DFK in 2018 and 2019 to provide risk and compliance advisory services related to the development of the current account service. The assignment was led by Pamela Nodwell who succeeded in developing a comprehensive risk register and robust set of risk and compliance policies and procedures in accordance with Central Bank of Ireland regulatory requirements and guidance.

The Risk Management Framework developed by Crowleys DFK has now been successfully rolled out to our 34 member credit unions nationwide.’

‘Crowleys DFK have been providing us with Irish tax and payroll compliance advice for a number of years.

They are professional, easy to work with and are always on hand to provide timely and precise advice when we need it. We work primarily with Siobhán O’Hea (Partner, Tax Services), who is extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of Irish VAT and RCT compliance and payroll obligations for our projects in the Republic of Ireland.  She understands our business and what we do.

The Firm’s close relationship with DFK member firms ensures we always receive top quality, country-specific advice.’

‘Crowleys DFK have been our external auditors for a number of years.

During this time, we have found them to be professional, efficient and independent. The Partner and Director in charge of the audit along with the other team members give an excellent and approachable service.

They strive to understand the operational aspects of the organisation and they are obviously well experienced in the Charity/Not for Profit Sector.

We have also used other ancillary services at Crowleys DFK such as taxation advice and have found the same kind of professionalism and in-depth knowledge.

I would have no hesitation in recommending them to prospective clients. ‘

In particular, we have found Crowley’s expertise in using the Xero online accounting package invaluable in embedding the software into our operations that ensures we are always fully up to date on our day-to-day finances.’

‘The Crowley’s team have come to feel like an integral extension of our own team. We not only enjoy working with them, we look forward to every engagement with them.

We learn from them continually and we look forward to growing the partnership for many years to come.’
