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.

A startup doesn’t have to have an accountant but its very good idea. The monthly cost of startup accounting isn’t much and the value is more than made up in avoiding mistakes and getting time back the valuable time you need to focus on making sure your startup is a success.

You’ll also have access to expert business startup advice to guide you through this challenging phase and avoid common pitfalls.

You can start by downloading this complete guide to small business grants in Ireland. Select the grant that interests you and follow the steps on the appropriate website. You can also speak to us for further assistance.

The lean startup methodology is the strategy of testing your business concept with a minimum viable product (MVP) before fully launching it or scaling your business. Test your MVP with a target audience, measure feedback and learn.

Startups fail for a number of reasons, the most common ones being:

  • Lack of demand for a product
  • Run out of funds / poor cash flow management
  • Beaten by competitors
  • Costing & pricing errors
  • Lack of proper market research
  • Wrong choice of partners or investors
  • Bad marketing
