Professional services firm, Azets Ireland, has announced plans to expand its outsourcing division.

It is expected to lead to the doubling of the unit’s current workforce of 20 people over the next 18 months.

Azets said it will roll out cloud accounting and bookkeeping services, management reporting, payroll services, business process outsourcing and staff secondments services to businesses in Ireland.

The company said the expansion will enable it to service existing and new clients in a range of sectors including the property development, energy, retail and professional services sectors.

“With businesses facing increasingly complex reporting and payroll requirements as well as difficulties in recruiting trained staff, companies of all sizes are looking for the support of experienced professionals who can navigate regulatory compliance,” said Susan Wylie, Head of Business Services Outsourcing, Azets Ireland.

“By outsourcing certain accounting and compliance functions and leveraging the most modern cloud-based solutions, business leaders can regain valuable time and focus on growth and innovation.”

“This need will only grow with pension auto-enrolment being introduced in January 2025 and gender pay gap reporting requirements being extended to employers with 150 or more employees this year and to employers with 50 or more employees in 2025,” Ms Wylie said.

Azets has committed to increase its presence in Ireland and employ 400 people by the end of 2025.

Azets Ireland currently employs a team of 220 people at its locations in Dublin, Enniscorthy and Waterford.
