For 36 years, Daly Park Accountants has been delivering expert accountancy services to a range of family-owned businesses and voluntary sector clients.

It sprang from the friendship of founding directors Gerard Daly and Sam Park, who spent their trainee days working in a Lurgan accountancy firm.

Once qualified, they established their new joint offices in Trevor Hill, Newry, Co Down and Market Street, Lurgan, Co Armagh, close to where they lived.

The business continues its legacy of developing its very best talent - managing director Darragh Cotter started off his career as a trainee, as did director Ruairi Maginn.

Ann Doran and Michael Lavery are Daly Park's other two directors and bring a wealth of experience to its senior team and staff of 40 people.

Daly Park prides itself on its commitment to develop the next generation of accountancy talent and it recruits three to four trainees each year, many of whom are retained and go on to develop their careers with the firm.

The business opened its Belfast office in 2013 in Adelaide Street under the management of Maria Evans.

Its main clients are family-owned SMEs and the company provides a range of services, including tax planning, estate planning, succession planning and inheritance tax planning, as their clients' business evolves.

However, the business has also developed a reputation for its audit accountancy services, which it supplies to the private and not-for-profit sector.

It also works closely with legal professionals to provide forensic accountancy services in complex litigation cases or legal disputes.
