Smart Accounting Ireland


As an Owner/Director it is essential to have a full understanding of and real-time information on the financial performance of your Business. Previously I had to wait and get a set of year end accounts months after the end of the financial year. This was akin to reversing down a mountain using the rare view mirror. Today, thanks to Paul Carr and his dedicated team in Smart Accounting Ireland, I can run my business from anywhere. I have real-time information at my fingertips. My Aged Debtors has reduced dramatically resulting in improved cash flow and peace of mind. I can vouch for Paul and his Team of Professionals and would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending him to any Business Owner.
