We were curious why we had so many businesses switching to us last year (over 50 new clients joined us), so we decided to ask some. Here’s what they said…

Understands The Speed At Which Business Decisions Need To Be Made
“We switched to WDA because we realised that we needed more dynamism and a new approach to finding solutions in an extremely hard environment. Having now worked with Jason Dowling of Whelan Dowling & Associates for the past number of months we are more than pleased to give this written testimonial. It is a great relief to have finally found an accounting company that understands the speed at which business decisions need to be made to gain an edge on our competitors.

Without hesitation System Handling Services recommend Whelan Dowling & Associates to our clients and you the reader of this testimonial. We would be more than happy to make time available to discuss this with you to help you in your decision.”
Paul Hardy, Managing Director, System Handling Services


Very Professional, Thorough, Cost Competitive And Reliably Consistent
“We switched to WDA because they are very professional, thorough, cost competitive, user friendly and reliably consistent. I have no hesitation in recommending them to any prospective future clients who may be considering a new accountant. I have complete confidence in the professional back up provided and the technical advices given to us as and when required, during the normal course of running our business. WDA have been a tremendous support.”
Mr. Barry Wyse, Managing Director, Harry’s Cafe, Dawson St., Dublin


Proactively Helping Our Company To Become More Profitable
“I switched to WDA because we needed an accountant who was proactively helping our company to become more profitable by providing excellent financial advice for our business needs. The initial months of our relationship with Jason and his team have proven the decision to change to be correct.”
Mr. Bob Hogan, Director, New Wave Purchasing


Best Price And Better Partner Level Attention
“We switched to WDA because we were getting a terrible service from our previous accountants. They were a large firm that never gave us partner level attention. WDA gave the best price of the firms we tendered with. So far we’re very happy with the level of service.”

High Value Insights Not Picked Up By My Previous Accountant
“I switched to WDA because of their professionalism, simplicity and approach in getting up to date information quickly. On reviewing my accounts, Jason very quickly gave some high value insights that had not been picked up by my previous accountant. Because of our initial meeting alone I have already referred him to a number of business owners.”
Mr. Ed Wall, Managing Director, PureWater.ie


For The First Time I Have An Accountant As An Advisor
“I switched to WDA because for the first time I feel I have an accountant as an advisor to my business and not someone who just submits my returns.”
Mr. Brian Walsh, MD, Route 2 Solutions Ltd.



“I knew you were good when you were referred to me but I didn’t realise how good. Switching was a no-brainer”.
Mr. Michael Gleeson, Managing Director


So Then We Asked Some Long-Standing Clients What They Thought

Steered Us Through Difficult Trading Conditions – For A Competitive Fee
“WDA understand our business and the challenges we face now and into the future With their honest and straight talking, they have steered us through some of the most difficult trading conditions we have ever experienced. And all for a very competitive fee. I would highly recommend WDA to any business for peace of mind and sound professional advice.”
Mr. John Moran, Managing Director, Office City


Support That Allows Us To Concentrate On Our Business
“From the first meeting WDA have followed through on their word to provide the accounting supports we need in business that allows us to concentrate on working our business.”
Mr. Paul Hardy, Managing Director, System Handling Services


Prompt And Professional 10 Year Service That Goes Beyond Accountancy
“For the past 10 years, Whelan Dowling & Associates (WDA) have provided us with a prompt and professional service which goes beyond accountancy to include advice and guidance on strategic management and financial issues. During this time they have been committed to fully understanding the needs of their customers and consistently delivered excellent service.”
Phil Bradley, Managing Director, Mobius Technologies


Previously Worrisome End Of Year Accounts Are Now Straightforward And Always On Time
“The personal service I have been afforded, particularly by Jason, over the last number of years ensured that both my personal and business issues were handled efficiently and competently. As a result, the previously worrisome and challenging end of year accounts and compliance are now straightforward and always on time.”
Mr. Warren Fox, Managing Director, Marketing Impressions


They Listen, Understand And Do
“I believe it is keen communication and understanding that happily keeps all Whelan Dowling clients with them year after year and also too attracts new clients or benefits from referrals from existing clients because they listen, understand and do. You need to have people you can work with and Whelan Dowling have a great team there. I can only be honestly complimentary to them.”
Mr. Gary Gilmore, Managing Director, Gilmore’s Foodservice company
