I have recently taken over as Chair of Wexford Chartered Accountants Business Networking Group (CA BNG). Members in business and practice are welcome to attend our first meeting of 2013.

Online Accounting Software for SMEs – Accountants Roadshow as Surfaccounts launches in Ireland & UK

The world has changed hugely since 1987, and the technology and equipment that we used then are actually featured in [...]
