OmniPro has been helping accountants buy, sell and merge firms for almost 20 years. During this time, we have helped firms introduce new partners for the future and facilitate succession plans and we have helped some firms double in size while helping other firms downsize.

A disposal, merger or acquisition can often be one of the milestone transactions in the lifetime of a firm and it is critical that when you are doing it, you do it with the right people. While accountants are experienced advisors, helping guide their clients through mergers and acquisitions, it is critical to have a helping hand that prevents firms from missing the blind spots that can arise when they are too close to a transaction.

One of the most common mistakes that we see firms making is focusing too much on the contract value rather than making sure that the person they are dealing with is the right one to deliver that value over the lifetime of the transaction. Everyone believes that nobody will look after their clients as well as they do, and they are possibly right. It is critical that you get the right people, with the right personalities and the right experience together or it can be a very difficult and costly process.
The market of acquisitions and disposals has changed substantially in recent years and there are now new players, new models and new structures in the marketplace. We work with sellers, buyers and with firms who are looking to grow through merger.

We currently have a number of firms who are seeking an exit. Some of these firms include:

Dublin Firm | Accounting, Audit, Tax and Financial Services | €750k+ Turnover

South Eastern Firm | Accounting and Tax | €90k Turnover

Dublin Based Remote Firm | Bookkeeping | €250k+ Turnover

Munster Based Firm | Accounting, Audit & Tax | €500k+ Turnover

West Dublin Firm | Accounting & Tax | €500k+ Turnover

We have almost 20 years of knowledge of the Irish market. Almost 20 years of knowledge of Irish firms.And Almost 20 years’ of experience in putting together transactions that work.
