Claremount is an independent firm of Chartered Accountants and Registered Auditors servicing a wide range of clients throughout UK and Ireland with offices in Derry, Omagh and Maghera.
The firm was formed on 1 February 1982 by founding partner Gerry Heaney, operating initially under the name of ‘Heaney & Company’ at 13 Queen Street, Derry, before moving to its current premises at 43 Clarendon Street in 1990.
The Omagh branch was acquired in 1996 which coincided with Shaun becoming a partner in business. The rebranding of the business to ‘Claremont’ took effect in November 2002 upon the acquisition of offices at Brookmount Road, Omagh.
The name ‘Claremount’ originates from the location of the 2 offices at that time:
- ‘Clare’ – Taken from the Derry office address at Clarendon Street.
- ‘Mount’ – Taken from the initial premises used by the Omagh office at Mountjoy Road.
On 1 September 2015 the Maghera branch was acquired thereby further increasing our geographical profile across Mid-Ulster.
At present the firm employs over 30 staff across the three branches.
