Childcare & nurseries

As specialist accountants for childcare providers and nurseries in Carlow we can support your business with everything from bookkeeping to advice on claiming childcare services relief.

In our experience, people tend to go into childcare as a profession because they have a passion for looking after children and supporting families. What they’re generally less interested in is financial administration, paperwork and dealing with Revenue. Fortunately, we’re on hand to take care of all of that – and to provide advice on growing your childcare business, too.

Whether you provide childcare services as a sole trader, perhaps operating out of your own home as a childminder, or run a nursery through a limited company, you’ll need to comply with certain statutory obligations. For sole traders, that will mean completing a personal income tax return, while companies have to submit a corporation tax (CT) return. We can prepare those for you, claiming all applicable reliefs and allowances, ensuring they’re submitted on time.

If you have ambitions to increase the size of your childminding business, perhaps taking on staff or acquiring dedicated premises, we can advise on the tax implications, as well as looking after your payroll. Nursery businesses looking to expand, either into larger premises or with additional branches, will also benefit from our guidance on business planning and growth strategy.
