Renee is married to Rohan and it was after the birth of her son Eamon, it was then Renee decided it was time to follow her dreams and start her own business. Originally, the business was started as a bookkeeping business to help out other small business owners to understand their business and software and be able to work on their business more without having to be bogged down with the day to day data entry. Before the year end, Renee completed her public practicing certificate and incorporated tax and accounting into the business as many of her clients were aware of her experience and wanted the one stop shop where all small business needs are met.

I needed help with the accounting for my business and wanted to go to someone who had significant experience working at a senior level on larger business accounts. When I heard that Renee O'Farrell was starting her own business (Bella Consultancy) I was quick to get on board as I was already aware of her previous experience and track record.
The decision to use Bella Consultancy has been a fantastic one for myself and my business. I particularly like the friendly and personal approach that Bella Consultancy provides and the way in which they deal with any questions or concerns I have in a very timely manner. It has been far more practical than the assistance I have received in the past when dealing with larger firms where you can feel like 'just a number'.
I would recommend Bella Consultancy to anyone who is looking for an approachable accounting firm that is responsive to their business needs and has the appropriate experience to provide the right advice.
