Parris and McNally: A forward-looking accountancy firm geared up for the digital age.

Life is on the up for Ayrshire based accountancy firm Parris & McNally.

Their recent acquisition of Firstax – a company founded in 1991 and renowned for delivering quality accountancy and bookkeeping services to clients in Ayrshire and the Central Belt – consolidates Parris & McNally’s growing reputation as a dynamic forward-looking Scottish accountancy brand.

As the company has grown and developed, however, they have started the move to more spacious premises at Crofthead Road, Prestwick.

This follows on from our recent highpoint in our digital journey when we were thrilled to announce that Parris & McNally has now achieved the prestigious Gold Partner Accreditation from Xero.

Xero Gold Status is an achievement that reflects Parris & McNally’s level of experience using Xero for our customers. It is an achievement we are intensely proud of and intend to build on.

Accountancy for a Digital Age

“Our strapline says accountancy for a digital age,” Co-Owner Lucy Parris said. “So we assist businesses to develop their financial management and bookkeeping reporting to truly deliver a cloud based accounting experience.”

Parris & McNally take pride in their ability to communicate with their clients. They are a company prepared to listen to their customers’ needs, so that they can understand the services required and deliver a bespoke experience that is second-to-none.

“At the end of the day,” Lucy continued, “we are a traditional accountancy company, we cover payroll, we cover bookkeeping, we cover management accountancy. We are commercially focused and very focused on assisting the client’s business to grow and develop.

“We also do a considerable amount of training on cloud accounting and we make sure clients understand how to best use Xero.”

What Parris and McNally effectively offer is a wraparound service designed to the specific needs of each and every client looking to make progress in an increasingly digital world. As it says on their website: A one-stop service for all your accounting needs.

“Thank you again,” the CEO of GO LEAN writes. “We are so glad to have the support of your team, this is perfect work and turned around in record time.

“We look forward to growing GO LEAN significantly this year with the support of Parris & McNally and CJM.”
