Why Our Clients Love Us

Hear what other Irish business owners are saying about us.

“Richie and the team have been incredible at taking our accounting out of the dark ages. Our previous accountant wasn’t the most technically savy person which meant our accounting & finance was slowing down our business doing tedious and monotonous tasks. Around Finance have automated and streamlined everything for us saving huge amounts of time and headaches. They have also saved us a lot of money through great advice. Would highly recommend.”

FAQ’s

Still got questions?
Let us know what you’re looking for.

An ecommerce or retail business doesn’t have to have an accountant but it’s a very good idea. The monthly cost of accounting for ecommerce business and retail stores isn’t much and the value is more than made up in avoiding mistakes and the insights and financial information you receive from experienced ecommerce accountants will help you grow your store.

Loss prevention in retail is taking proactive steps to reduce loss in your retail environment. Retail stores often lose money through common problems than can easily be prevented, such as theft, shrinkage, human errors and wastage. These issues are quickly identified with effective accounting for ecommerce business and retail stores.

Accounting for ecommerce businesses involves managing online transactions, dealing with various payment gateways, handling international sales and taxes, and often requires specialised ecommerce accounting software. In contrast, accounting for regular businesses primarily focuses on physical transactions, inventory management, and may use different types of accounting software.

Your final retail selling price should cover the cost price of that product and leave enough margin to contribute towards operating expenses (rent, utilities, insurance, etc) plus leave some profit for yourself. Don’t miss out on our expert guide for ecommerce pricing strategies.

This integration helps streamline bookkeeping and accounting processes for ecommerce businesses using Shopify. For more details and insights on this integration read our blog.

Utilising specialised ecommerce bookkeeping services or software that integrates with Shopify can help manage your transactions, inventory, and financial reports efficiently. Regularly reviewing your financial data and working with an accountant that has experience in Shopify bookkeeping can also be beneficial.

Look for a firm with expertise in ecommerce, a good understanding of online platforms like Shopify, experience with ecommerce accounting software, and a proven track record of helping ecommerce sellers navigate taxes and compliance.
