Week 9 – A Trip to Boston

Ruairi Feehan

Our client engagement has been really busy over the last couple of weeks. In this time period, we have moved from the planning stage of the engagement to fieldwork and I have been assigned members of staff to assist me. I’m delegating work to the more junior members of the team and providing assistance to them when required. I’m working from the client’s site which means there is interaction with the client on a daily basis.

Over the weekend, the secondment team paid a visit to Boston for some much needed R&R. The weather was beautiful over the weekend which added to the trip. We did a bus tour of the city which included a very knowledgeable tour guide who explained the history of the city, including the famous Boston Tea Party protest in 1773. Boston is a beautiful city and I definitely plan to return again!

Shaun and I are back in New York for the week which gives us a chance to catch up with some of our New York colleagues. As EisnerAmper’s busy season is now winding down, an additional manager has been allocated to our engagement team and we are looking forward to meeting them at the end of the week.

Last weekend we decided to take a trip to Boston where we stayed in ‘Southie’ a well known Irish neighbourhood in South Boston. On Saturday night we visited Landsdowne Street which is where Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox, is located. We went to the Bleacher Bar which is actually underneath the bleacher seats in the stadium and you can see the full outfield through the windows.

Joseph Halligan, a fellow Secondee, and I are still working in Massachusetts at the client’s headquarters. We are in the testing phase of the audit. We will probably be here until the end of April and then back in the New York office to complete the audits.

I had some family visiting from both Ireland and Philadelphia during the weekend so I was able to fit in some tourist attractions with them. The sun was shining on Saturday so we made a trip out to Ellis Island. They have a database of everyone who arrived between 1915 and 1960. We were able to find records of both my grandparents who emigrated to America from Ireland in the 1950s.

Myself and Ruairi are now working full time in the client’s offices. This week I worked on the Reconciliation and Sampling documents for my sections of the audit. After being signed-off by the Senior Manager on the engagement, I began making my selections for testing which were later issued to the client.

Myself, Ruairi and Joey (my fellow Secondees) journeyed into the Bronx on Saturday where we went to a Yankees game. Unfortunately, the Yankees lost but we still had a great day out.

Week 7 – Central Park Views

We are now into our fourth week at the client’s site in Massachusetts and our audit testing is beginning to pick up pace. Shaun and I are supervising a team of 3 other staff members. We are hoping to have most of our audit testing completed in the next 2 weeks to allow us to wrap up this portion of the audit back in New York.

On Saturday, we took advantage of our first weekend of warm weather in New York and made a trip to Central Park to unwind and throw around an American football. It’s safe to say our technique could improve but it was a great day with a nice view of the city.

Week 7 – Eyes on the Prize!

Aidan and I are working from the client’s offices on a daily basis as the engagement progresses. We are enjoying having direct access to the client. I’m gaining valuable experience in US GAAP and auditing an alternative investments management company is proving to be both challenging and rewarding.

Last Saturday Aidan, Joey, Shaun and I went to Central Park for the afternoon for some relaxation. We threw an American Football around and got some much needed exercise! As you can see in my photo I have my eyes on the prize and needless to say if the Giants need a replacement for OBJ I can step up!

Week 6 – Broadway!

Aidan Lundy

With the majority of client information received, we began work validating populations to ensure completeness and accuracy on our job. We spent two days at the client’s offices which are located on the west side of the city as well as one day in EisnerAmper’s New Jersey office.

I went to see the Book of Mormon on Broadway last Thursday night which was excellent and enjoyed celebrating St. Patrick’s Day on Saturday but unfortunately there was no Bank Holiday for us here in the USA!

Week 6 – St. Patrick’s Day in NYC!

After a short and enjoyable weekend back in NYC for St. Patrick’s Day, Joey Halligan (a fellow Secondee from EisnerAmper Ireland) and I are back at our client’s headquarters in Massachusetts. We’re here with a small team of two to begin revenue and inventory testing.

On Saturday, we got to enjoy St. Patrick’s day in NYC. I had a friend visiting from Ireland so we made the most of the day and went to many different pubs across the city. The next day we took in some of the sites which included a walk through Central Park.

EisnerAmper Ireland staff attend CASSD Gala Ball 2019

The Chartered Accountants Student Society of Dublin (CASSD) hosted their annual Ball on Saturday, 9 March in The Ballsbridge Hotel. Sarah Ryan, a member of EisnerAmper Ireland’s International Business team, is currently Treasurer of CASSD and played a key role in organising the event, which is one of the biggest in the student calendar each year.

CASSD plays a vital role in the student body, providing a link between students and the institute as well as organising numerous events throughout the year.

This year, CASSD chose ‘Empower the Family’ as their sponsored charity. ‘ETF’ supports disadvantaged families in Ireland through education, supporting young disadvantaged single parents in Ireland, with the determination and ability, to successfully complete university. EisnerAmper Ireland was delighted to sponsor staff tickets in addition to donating a spot prize for such a worthy cause.

The evening kicked off with a Prosecco reception, where attendees were greeted by a live saxophone player. The smooth jazz provided a welcoming and relaxed atmospheric back-drop as students took pictures next to a giant, illuminated flower wall. 

In the dining hall, students were met by an extravagant ballroom with a goody bag full of treats on each chair. A raffle took place during the dinner with Michéal O’Cualain, a member of EisnerAmper Ireland’s Tax Team winning a Leinster Rugby Jersey, signed by the entire Leinster team. With the band set up, everyone got dancing until late into the night. A great time was had by all.
