Avid Partners has a number of E-Commerce clients that we assist in a number of ways from accounting and bookkeeping services to funding and marketing supports. At Avid Partners we recognise the potential for innovative E-Commerce businesses and work closely with clients in this area to help them drive their business forward. E-Commerce businesses have the potential to grow very quickly, much faster than most traditional business models, but also have a high burn rate as many start-up companies never progress past their early development stage. Avid Partners Accountants Ireland can help you develop your technology business.
The E-Commerce market is Ireland is an interesting mix of a large number of very small micro businesses (less than 10 employees) and a small number of very large global players who have a high presence in Ireland (Zynga, Facebook, E Bay, Google). Many small indigenous E-Commerce businesses are niche operators focused on extracting revenues from one or a small number of key areas. Many of the smaller companies have moved away from the sole focus of advertising revenue and instead are concentrating on recurring revenue streams such as fee based models and sales. In the retail sector for example many of the tradition bricks and mortar operators use online as a supplemental sales channel. “Online has become increasingly important for The Kilkenny Group, we will continue to invest in growing our online presence in the Irish market. However, we do see online as complimentary to our 13 stores nationwide and not as a replacement” Greg O Gorman, Marketing Manager, The Kilkenny Group.
There are a number of challenges facing the E-Commerce sector including:
- Scalability of their businesses
- Raising participation of SME’s in the E-Commerce section of the domestic economy
- Security of online sales and transactions
- Governmental support to the digital sector
- Continued infrastructure development
- Suitability of certain products and services categories for optimal online sales
- Internet Marketing and online customer fatigue

I met Avid Partners through a local business networking group. We had been using the same accountants for years and found that in these harsh economic times that we were not getting good enough value or service. We were very impressed by the company's professionalism and enthusiasm and genuine interest in helping us get the most out of our business. As a result we are now clients of Avid Partners and are thrilled with our decision.
After meeting Avid Partners with a view to changing our accountants, we came away with a better deal financially and a feeling that we were in capable hands. We feel that Avid Partners has a personal interest in the welfare of our business. Avid Partners have given us great advice, help and support and respond to our day to day queries with speed and efficiency. We feel it was a great move for us to change to Avid Partners.
