Our Story

Solve Outsource was started in 2010 as a specialist accounting outsource service to small and medium sized companies who wanted to get expert accounting and payroll services without the added expense of having that resource in – house.

Founded by John Carolan and later joined by Brenda Smith, Solve Outsource has grown to 12 qualified staff who are solely focused on delivering accurate accounting information on time to hundreds of clients on a monthly basis.

Our experienced staff are equipped with the skills and expertise needed to support growing businesses with their outsourcing requirements.

Solve is a specialist accounting service provider for successful business owners and their companies. In effect, we are the accounts team!

Solve helps business managers and owners free up time to focus on core value added activities in a cost-efficient manner. Sometimes the hidden costs of employing a staff member to carry out accounts work, bank reconciliation, and payroll calculations and payments may not be too obvious as Employers PRSI, and contributions as well as office space can add as much as 22 % extra on top of the employee’s wages.

This is why Solve Outsource set up in business as many companies pay a full-time person to carry out these roles but in actual fact they may not be needed for the full week.

We believe that by using the Solve team is an effective way it will reduce overheads along with the confidence that you have a professional team dealing with your business needs. In addition to cost savings, business owners will have more time to focus their resources on their core business. We provide capable and experienced people to advice, support and help ensure that the client’s business is successful, profitable and operating to maximum efficiency.

The service we prove helps our clients scale their requirements as their business grows and develops. Our Certified Bookkeepers are always on hand to assist when you need us, and our flexibility means that as you grow there is no change in the level of service provided and no deadline missed.

We can offer an individual and flexible service tailored to your business with the assurance that Solve will be your "one stop shop" for all your accounting requirements.

divide our Services in 3 areas – Accounting (monthly / bi-monthly / quarterly), Bookkeeping and Payroll.

At Solve Outsource, we are adding some great added value for our outsource customers. We have added free access to our Smart Business Support Hub.
