In assurance services, PKF UKI consolidated its 10th place in the rankings, with fees increasing by 49% to £56.4 million. In tax, the firms jumped from 14th to 11th place thanks to a 61% rise in fee income to £31.3m; they were only £1.5 million away from breaking into the top 10 for the first time.
Feargal McCormack, Managing Director of PKF-FPM said: “It’s an exciting time to be part of the PKF family in Ireland and the UK. We’re growing faster than anyone else because we’re investing in our operations, introducing additional service lines where we see opportunities to help clients, winning more work from current and new clients, raising our levels of client service, and taking on more partners and staff.
Although we’re independent firms, we’re working together more closely than ever before – and that’s making a real difference to the scale and sophistication of the services that we’re able to offer. There’s scope for further collaboration in the future, and that will result in more opportunities for us and our clients over the coming months.
There are a number of challenges for the year ahead – not least the uncertainty caused by Brexit – but we’ve got good momentum and remain committed to investing in our business. I’m confident that 2017 will be another memorable year for PKF in Ireland and the UK.”
