Raymond Gibbons has spent his working life in various financial management roles with some of Irelands leading SME’s. As an industry trained Chartered Management Accountant he brings critical industry experience to his clients. With the help of the Meath Enterprise Office, he set up BMS Accountants in Navan in 2009. To finance his growth, he knocked on the doors of Microfinance Ireland.

BMS Accountants provide a range of professional management accounting services to SME´s in the Midlands, North East and Greater Dublin area.

We aim to deliver.’ BMS build meaningful and lasting relationships with their clients. Their approach is to get to understand your business and help business owners like you to drive your business forward. Being a former financial controller, Raymond sees this as one of his company’s unique selling points. He understands business and the vested interests of the various stakeholders from business owners to investors and lenders. And critically he has set up BMS with small to medium business in mind. A former financial controller at your disposal when you need him, meaning you don’t have to hire expensive permanent staff.
“To provide professional accounting, management and training services to SME’s at affordable prices while ensuring our services at all times are focused on adding value to our clients.”
Dynamic, forward looking accountants
With BMS accountants, clients can reap the benefit of a qualified, experienced CFO, without the full time cost of one. Helping them becoming more strategic and focused on driving their business forward. Raymond strongly believes that a lack of planning and poor controls over critical areas are the primary reasons for SME failures. ‘Business owners need to assess and implement controls to mitigate the risks they face. They need to invest time exploring opportunities for growth and learning how to maximise their strengths to stay one step ahead of the competition. We provide SME owners with the expertise and support to do just that.’ says Raymond.
