Crowe Horwath Newsletter – Q3 2017

Sharon Gallen Audit partner - Crowe Horwath Ireland

We are pleased to share with you the latest issue of our quarterly newsletter, keeping you up to date with all the latest news from Crowe Horwath.

We recently launched our Annual Hotel Industry Survey for 2017, which serves as an important benchmarking tool for the sector and is widely used by owners, funders, developers and other stakeholders. The results for 2017 demonstrate the strong performance of the sector, particularly in Dublin, and support the case for new supply development in the city. Our Hotel, Tourism and Leisure (HTL) team will be hosting a breakfast briefing at the Conrad Hotel on November 9 to look at the impact of new supply on the sector. Contact us if you would like to attend.

In recent weeks we have launched our SME Pinnacle Programme – a new initiative with Dublin Chamber. This programme is built around a series of eight interactive lunchtime networking and thought leadership sessions where owners of Irish SMEs can share insights and personal experience across a range of opportunities and challenges that they currently face. We look forward to an engaging programme over the coming months.

Since Britain voted in June 2016 to leave the EU, many Irish companies are looking to the Netherlands as a viable alternative to gain a foothold into the EU post-Brexit. Working closely with our colleagues in Crowe Horwath Foederer in Amsterdam, we have launched a special Dutch-Irish initiative to advise and assist clients looking to establish in the Netherlands. Hugo Everaerd, International Tax Partner is available to meet with our clients to explain the options available in establishing Dutch operations. Contact us if you would like to meet to explore your options for establishing in the Netherlands.

With our ambitious expansion plans we are looking to recruit a record number of graduates and qualified staff this year. If you know of anyone interested in building an extraordinary career with Crowe Horwath, please get in contact with us.

If you would like further information on any of the topics covered in this newsletter, please do not hesitate to contact me or your regular contact within the firm.
