Sean is an Accounting and Finance graduate from DCU, and is from a sheep and suckler farm in Corlough Co.Cavan. Having spent three years in college in Dublin, Sean decided he wanted to return home to work having grown tired of the city life. Of his experience in ifac Sean has said: “Ifac was the ideal fit for me as it is local but also one of the top accounting firms in Ireland. Dealing with agricultural clients was also something I was very interested in being from a farming background. My role in the Cavan office as a trainee has varied since I started. I have worked under the guidance of my mentor but as I have gained experience I have also started to work with clients myself, doing their accounts and dealing with queries. My experience as a trainee has been extremely positive so far. The comprehensive four week graduate training at the start was very beneficial in learning how to use the recording systems of the company. I have worked on a multitude of different clients from sole traders to partnerships and companies, getting an insight into all the different types of accounts. Ifac is a great place to work and do your exams as you are seeing the practical side of all the subjects you are studying and you are supported throughout. I find working for Ifac has allowed me achieve a good work life balance as whilst working and studying I still have time to follow up my interests outside of work. Along with farming I also play football for the local GAA club.”
You need an accountant who knows farmers and the business of farming. Ifac is a co-op and they know farming and farm tax, they are experts and I recommend them.
Teddy Cashman Dairy Farmer, ifac Board Member
I was of the opinion that I had a good tax advisor prior to moving to ifac. Ifac’s service goes beyond the traditional tax accountant. Their service matches my plans for the future of my farm with top class tax planning.
Larry Martin Dairy Farmer
I listen to farmers expressing concern about the service they are getting from their accountant. I tell them to join ifac as I am very happy with the service I am getting.
Pat Murphy Dairy & Beef Farmer
Getting the benefit of all the ifac specialists with one point of contact has been great for us. We're a growing business so having a partner who brings an external perspective is highly valuable.
Padraig Hennessy Co-Founder, Terra Liquid Minerals
Young farmers need expert specialist advice, they need to be with an accountant who knows farming and farm income and transfer taxes. Ifac fits the bill for me and I strongly recommend them to other young farmers.
