The Canyon team was a terrific resource for SYNEO as we evaluated the proper steps in establishing a direct sales and service model in Ireland. SYNEO benefitted from Canyon’s professional relationships with local service providers, such as tax consulting, banking and payroll processing, which allowed the SYNEO team to focus more efforts towards developing business strategy and customer relationships.

When we decided to embark on our expansion project to set up an Irish operation, we were glad to be introduced to Canyon CTS who helped us manage a complex transaction involving multiple jurisdictions over a period of several months. They helped us in establishing the legal, accounting and governance infrastructure we needed and provided guidance and support at every step along the way, from finding initial office space, connecting with recruiters, to health, pensions & benefits contacts.
They also assisted with providing some much needed project management support and helped develop an appropriate accounting & financial reporting framework – Canyon CTS have provided us with tremendous support and have been instrumental in helping us establish our presence in Ireland.
The team at Canyon CTS continue to provide us with ongoing daily support as we grow our business and build out our Irish operations. I would highly recommend them to any US company looking to establish a business presence in Ireland. They are solutions driven in the way they approach the project and we have found them to be a reliable and efficient project management team on the ground in Ireland.

The team at Canyon CTS, particularly Dave Evans and Nickola Murphy, were instrumental in assisting us with our expansion into Ireland.
They were able to support us with many aspects of the project, particularly in the early stages. Their responsiveness and solutions-driven mindset were key to making the expansion project so successful. I personally found it very helpful to have a direct contact on the same time-zone in the U.S. to assist with managing the project. I would have no hesitation in recommending the team to any company contemplating a European expansion project.”

The service provided by Canyon CTS is second to none and the degree of professionalism with which they have conducted business on our behalf has been outstanding.
Whereas in the past we have had one person, in house, fulfilling an accounts function, we now have a team of professional, well-qualified, pleasant and helpful staff attending to all our administrative and accounting needs. We feel as if they only work for us, such is the degree of care and attention we receive, and, not only is the service of a practical nature, they also provide invaluable advice and direction to our business.
I could not recommend their services more highly.
