ABOUT US

PGR is an independent firm of Chartered Accountants based in Belfast providing accounting and tax professional services to owner managed businesses and SME’s. We see ourselves as trusted advisers, supporting our clients to manage the financial side of their business and comply with the ever increasing bureaucracy involved in running a small business.

Our service covers all the accountancy and taxation areas required by independent businesses, with a special focus on using technology to increase the efficiency of the financial management information systems. For many years, the firm has encouraged clients to adopt and improve their use of computerised accounting systems in order to: make recording of accounting transactions easier; provide more regular and timely information on the performance of their businesses; and to reduce the amount of time needed to complete routine bookkeeping and payroll tasks. We have significant experience providing solutions across all versions of QuickBooks, SAGE, Xero and payroll software as used by our clients.

In 2021 Peter Greene completed an MSc in Accounting which focussed specifically on a business consultancy review of how PGR and its clients could adopt the next generation of accounting software which is delivered through the internet and known as “Cloud Accounting”. These new cloud-based packages allow clients to record transactions digitally in a paperless environment and achieve significant savings in the time and effort required to maintain accounting records.

HMRC are leveraging this digital accounting transformation through the MTD (Making Tax Digital programme) and PGR are well placed to assist our clients to achieve compliance with the new requirements that have already been introduced and to continue to provide guidance to clients to embrace the next phases of HMRC’s Making Tax Digital initiatives.

The next stage of our development is the establishment of a strategic partnership with Intuit QuickBooks – a leading global cloud software provider (www.intuit.com). PGR will be the only strategic partner based in Northern Ireland. The partnership will enable us to continue to take care of our clients’ business requirements. All of our staff are QuickBooks Certified ProAdvisors.

Our aim is to make the transition to digital for our clients as smooth and as hassle free as possible. Once implemented, a successful cloud accounting solution will reduce the burden of performing those mundane monthly reconciliations, streamline processes, and ensure compliance and timely delivery of information to key stakeholders and HM Revenue and Customs. By efficiently completing the compliance activities using Cloud technologies, we can focus on helping and advising you on key business decisions and tax planning opportunities.

We are members of the following professional associations: the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Ireland (ICAI); the Chartered institute of Taxation; the Associate of Taxation Technicians; and the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP).

...in-depth tax knowledge...

I was referred to PGR by a fellow NI business colleague who highly recommended Peter Green and his firm for their in-depth tax knowledge and professional guidance in all matters of financial planning. We have enjoyed working with PGR since 2013 as they handle our corporate accounts for both companies in tandem with providing personal tax planning as the need arises. He and his team are very efficient and courteous and they consistently make me feel truly valued as a client. They are able to adapt with ease as our business grows and financial matters become more complex. I truly enjoy working with them and in turn highly recommend their services.

Paul Flanagan, Director at Works Services

...positive and cost effective...

Our relationship with PGR started with a recommendation to contact them to obtain advice and help with a tax issue. We were very happy to have PGR take the lead and get a positive and cost effective result. Based on our experience, we now benefit from PGR's ongoing support to operate our payroll. PGR have been professional, customer focused, and have delivered effective results. We are very happy.
