Magic Beans is currently one of Northern Ireland’s leading teams of Xero accountants and business professionals, providing businesses access to real time information on how they are performing. The firm was founded in 2016 and run by the co-founders, Sharon Brown and Clare Galloway. It has grown extensively in that time and is now one of the leading providers of outsourced accountancy support, management accounts and cashflow forecasts in Northern Ireland.
Magic Beans has now been picked by Belfast based HCA Chartered Accountants to be its partner. HCA has grown organically since 2013 and through this key acquisition is now better placed to provide a full suite of accountancy support and advisory services to our clients across the UK and Ireland – including specialist tax advice, year end compliance accounts, corporate finance and business recovery support.
Magic Beans owners and co-founders Sharon Brown and Clare Galloway said: “We are delighted to be joining the Hannaway Corporate Advisory group and see this as the next exciting phase for Magic Beans as we continue to provide real time management information and outsourced accountancy support to our clients. Joining the HCA group provides us with additional resources and support to enable Magic Beans to continue to grow and provide additional value-added services to our clients while maintaining our very strong values, which mirror those of HCA.”
Brian Hegarty of HCA commented “this acquisition is an important step forward for HCA as we continue to expand our operations. Magic Beans is a great fit professionally and personally – serving a similar client base to our existing business. We are delighted that Sharon, Clare and the Magic Beans team have joined the HCA family. This is an exciting opportunity not only for our staff but also to enhance our current client offering and strengthen our position even further as advisors to growing, entrepreneurial businesses.”
