ProfitLab Quickbooks training
kevin barry


We love the Quickbooks accounting system. It looks good, has loads of graphs and is easy to interrogate in case you need to look into a particular issue. Kevin Barry of Profitlab has been hired multiple times by Quickbooks Ireland to present webinars and training to Business Owners, Accountants, and Bookkeepers.

The Profitlab team specialises in helping business owners have a system in place which lets them know if they are making money or not. Setting up and supporting online accounting systems using the Quickbooks software of Intuit and integrating relevant additional programs with it is what is.

We believe that if the system is set up correctly in the first place this will ease the administration pressures and costs of business owners.

Our Guarantee: We do not want you to use Quickbooks online accounting unless you like using it. So in the first 30 days if it’s not for you just call Kevin on 1 800 476 984 and tell him you hate it and we will close it down and give you your money back immediately

Quickbooks Specialists

In the process we:

· Sell you your Quickbooks License

· Set-up of Fix Up your Quickbooks program so that it gives you the information you wish to know about in an easy to understand manner

· Automate your business so that the accounts largely put themselves together

· Schedule key information to be emailed to you as frequent as you wish

· Ensure your phone app is easy to use and integrated with the above

“The best of the whole lot has been that app you gave me. To be able to photograph the bills when they happen, and then forget about them has been a lifesaver!”

“After months of research we decided to move to Quickbooks Online. Kevin audited our setup and sorted all our issues in no time, so we could pay our VAT in confidence. Highly knowledgeable (helped Quickbooks to setup in Ireland), very clear instructions.”

Chris Izart

“Kevin and his team have guided us through the process of setting up QuickBooks. From the outset they provided fantastic guidance and support. Kevin was very available and prompt in responding to queries. His excellent coaching skills and ability to instil confidence to use QuickBooks was really appreciated.”
