Mount Pleasant, SC and West Ashley, SC – McCay Kiddy LLC (“McCay Kiddy”) and Wilson & Quirk, LLC (“Wilson & Quirk”) both leading providers of accounting, tax, and assurance services in the Charleston area, announced today the planned merger of the two companies creating an expansion of services, technologies, and geographic service area.
McCay Kiddy is a locally owned CPA firm in Mount Pleasant, SC. The firm is owned by Justin K. Kiddy, CPA/PFS, CFE, CVA and Melissa A. Kiddy, CPA, CFE, both residents of the South Carolina Lowcountry. The firm was established in 1986 and currently has 22 employees. McCay Kiddy combines deep industry audit experience, comprehensive tax solutions, bookkeeping, and outsourced CFO services and a strong commitment to personal service. The firm’s approach has been to expand services to businesses, business owners, and high-income individuals by inserting their expertise into a more frequent interaction and hands on approach with the client versus a once a year tax preparation service from the sidelines.
“We are excited for our newly forged partnership with Wilson & Quirk. Our Companies have similar business models with clients served, leadership style, and services provided. With our constant focus throughout this process on the impact and satisfaction of both of our respective clients and staff, we know this will be a successful combination,” explains Justin Kiddy, Partner of McCay Kiddy.
Wilson & Quirk has been providing quality tax, audit and bookkeeping services to local individuals and businesses since 1998. The firm is owned by Danny Quirk Jr. and Russell Deal who are residents of West Ashley and Summerville, respectively. The firm has 9 employees and is located in the West Ashley area of Charleston, SC. Wilson & Quirk’s expertise ranges from tax management and accounting services to more in-depth services such as audits and reviewed financial statements. By combining expertise, experience, and team mentality of staff, Wilson and Quirk assures that every client receives close analysis and proactive attention.
“By combining our practice with McCay Kiddy, this will allow us to offer additional service options to our clients, and with a consolidated operations team, our senior staff will be able to expand our proactive planning services to clients,” exclaimed Danny Quirk Jr., Partner of Wilson & Quirk.
Justin Kiddy further commented, “Joining with Wilson & Quirk provides a growth opportunity for both our businesses and the business community as a whole in Charleston. We have found that most traditional CPA firms are not engaging in the true needs of the small to medium business (SMB), which is to help them run their business financially and predict what is coming. Instead they continue to file a once a year tax return for the client with no further engagement. We have been successful at rolling up our sleeves and injecting our financial expertise to help businesses and their owners with forecasting and planning on a consistent basis, and this has allowed these business owners to focus on growing their businesses with consistent financial accuracy and focus. We are excited to add this approach and expanded service offerings to current Wilson & Quirk clients, as well as businesses in West Ashley.”
