Chalmers Accounting and Consulting



About Us

Accounting and Business Consulting

Qualified as an accountant with KPMG more than 20 years ago. Over my career I have guided businesses through start up, growth, financial successes and difficulties. I have spent the past ten years working in practice looking after the outsourced financial management of a wide range of SMEs in Cork including some well known brands in the hospitality, food manufacturing, craft brewing and Ecommerce sectors. As well as a full range of financial reporting and tax compliance services, I am experienced in business planning, financial forecasting, loan and grant applications, developing and implementing business strategy, budgeting and preparing monthly management reports. I offer an outsourced financial management service to SMEs who need inhouse financial expertise and who want to build a relationship with a finance professional but cannot afford a full-time financial controller. I am as excited about preparing a business plan for a start-up sole trader as I am working as a business consultant with a multi-million euro company (recent consulting work includes reviewing a business model and pricing strategy for an €80m Irish company). Early on in my career I worked in the NHS in Scotland as a Deputy Director of Finance at an NHS Trust and also worked with Apple where I was a key member of the project team that helped to transition the European finance functions to the newly established shared services centre in Cork. I have a BA from UCC, a Post Grad Diploma in Business Studies and have lectured in tax and financial reporting in CIT.
