A Newry and Dundalk based Chartered Accountancy firm, FPM, has won an award from the Association of On-Line Accountants for its website.

The website award was presented to FPM Managing Partner, Feargal McCormack by Mr Henry Saville, President of the Institute of the Chartered Accountants at the FPM 10th anniversary celebration in Newry on 3 August.

In accepting the website award Feargal McCormack, Managing Partner at FPM said “We put a lot of thought into the development of our website and we are delighted that it is the first accountancy website in Ireland to achieve the On-Line Accountants accreditation.
