    Our mission is to serve ourclients with creativity, enthusiasm, energy and vision.Corr & Corr was formed by twins, Brendan & Paul Corr. The practice grew by having an understanding of business and business processes as opposed to viewing accountancy as merely an annual compliance process. Paul & Brendan, brothers in business, also have followed perfectly parallel career paths studying and qualifying together, and now sharing the helm of their leading accountancy firm. Their Coalisland based firm has grown rapidly through straitened economic times, with business and professional clients from all over Northern Ireland, GB & RoI, with a new office recently opened in Cookstown.

    All the time, providing the best advice, on time, every time but never forgetting one thing, its the whole customer experience that counts. Corr & Corr aspire to be the most outstanding in their field.

    In a world that has faced its challenges, we have remained strong due to the skill of our teams, our commitment to excellence and never accepting that the value adding process has stopped.
