About Me

Frances Prince FCCAFrances Prince FCCA

Hello, I'm Frances Prince, the owner of Artisan Accountant. I am a qualified accountant and a fellow of the Chartered Association of Certified Accountants. I previously received a Bachelor of Business Studies (Hons) degree from WIT. Throughout my professional career, I have spent a number of years working in Ireland, London and Hong Kong. 

My main interest now lies in working with, and helping, the local business community. My approach is very much client focused and making sure the client's needs are correctly identified and actioned. I deal personally and promptly with all my clients. 

I love working with smaller businesses and being able to provide the tailored assistance that they need. Small and medium enterprises are the backbone of the Irish economy. They make up over 99% of businesses and account for almost 70% of people employed in Ireland. 

As a qualified accountant I use my knowledge to tailor services specifically to your business. In the current economic climate, businesses have many challenges. I am passionate about understanding the issues and implementing solutions to help them succeed.

As a small business owner myself I use my experience to help clients deal with the unexpected challenges. These could come in any form such as dwindling cashflow or bad debts from customers.  However, smooth seas seldom make good sailors, and challenges if handled correctly can actually be a great learning experience and build skills and know-how for the future. 

I am involved on a voluntary basis in two local organisations supporting children with special needs. I serve on the Board of Management at a local school providing special education, and hold the role of Treasurer. Also, I am a committee member of the Kilkenny Arch Club which provides a social outlet for children with special needs. 

When I’m not working I love to wind down; you will find me reading a good book, walking with my dog or out and about with the family. 

Call me on +353-(0)87-689-6211 or email frances@artisanaccountant.ie to see how I could help you develop your business.
