Get Business Coaching



Today’s business environment is highly competitive. Therefore, it’s more important than ever if you’re starting your own business that you have the skills you need to succeed. Becoming a great business leader is about having a range of relevant skills: you need to be an excellent communicator and negotiator. You need to understand your weaknesses and play to your strengths. And you need to purge self-limiting beliefs that are holding you back. 

At Russell & Co., we not only help you develop the accounting and administrative skills you’ll need as your business grows, but also the non-technical skills required for success in today’s marketplace. With our expert advice borne of years of experience, you’ll develop your staff to deliver exceptional value to all your stakeholders.

Create Better Business Plans



Your business plan isn’t just a document which spells out who you are and what you sell. It’s also a manifesto on how you plan to change your industry and shape customer experiences. Crafting a realistic and detailed business plan, however, is a skill. At Russell & Co., we’ve been helping companies like yours create compelling business plans for many years, and we can help you too. With our business plan service, you’ll get a clear understanding of the value you offer, where your focus lies, and where your company is likely to go in the future.

Find Out Which Business Structure You Should Use



The structure of your business, be it sole trader, partnership, or limited company, can have long-term ramifications for your firm. If you’re starting your own business, it’s essential to choose the correct legal entity from the outset to prevent difficulties later on.

At Russell & Co., we know first hand how challenging it can be to figure out which company structure is best for your firm. That’s why we offer a team of qualified consultants and accountants who can help you come to a rational decision about which is best for your particular situation.

Get Help Managing Your Company Accounts



Managing company accounts can be a challenge, especially if you’re only just starting your own business.  Worse still, making a mistake can be costly. Filing late or miscalculating the tax you owe can lead to fines and land you in legal trouble. Russell & Co. take away all the risk and stress of filing your accounts. Our team of professional accountants create accurate, reliable company accounts, allowing you to submit statutory returns with confidence.

Get Tax Advice



Tax can be a difficult subject if you’re starting your own business. But at Russell & Co., we make tax easy, helping you file accounts, work out how much you owe, and predict how much money you may need to set aside in the future. We’ll also let you know if you qualify for entrepreneur’s tax relief and how much you could potentially save. 

Our tax advisor Cork service covers all kinds of different types of taxation you may face. Our corporate tax planning helps you budget for future tax bills and work out how much you can spend on capital today. We also provide you with advice on VAT, PAYE and RCT regulations, so that you can stay abreast of the latest developments in the law while remaining compliant. Our personal taxation service offers tax planning for individuals and partnerships, as well as how to handle revenue audits and inspections.

Get Financial Advice



If you’re starting your own business, it can be challenging to manage your finances and know what you can afford, and what you can’t. At Russell & Co., we help you navigate choppy financial waters, giving you guidance in crucial areas such as where to invest your capital, how to manage loan repayment horizons, and whether to employ new staff based on your business projections

With expert financial advice, you can ensure that your business starts on the proper footing. You can find out things like whether you’re likely to be approved for a loan, how many units you need to sell to break even, and where you might want to invest the profits of your business. 

Get Payroll Services



When starting your own business, one of your first considerations is how you will pay your staff. Payroll, however, can be a confusing subject, with many rules and regulations. At Russell & Co., we can provide a one-stop-shop for all your payroll needs. All you have to do is hire the right people to work for your company, and we’ll take care of the rest. With us, you can say goodbye to long nights calculating PAYE, creating monthly payslips, or working out pension and PRSA contributions.
