About Us

SJD Accountancy is the founding company within the group, and was set up in 1992 by Simon Dolan. Simon set the company up after realising that the contractor world was growing rapidly, but that most accountancy firms did not understand the specialist requirements needed for these types of limited companies. Having identified a gap in the market Simon formed SJD Accountancy, initially operating alone from his spare bedroom, he has now grown the company to a business with offices across the UK, supporting more than 14,000 clients.

The core ethos of the business is providing great customer service and this carries across all three group companies. Emails will be answered within four hours if sent during normal office hours, and the telephone will be answered by a real person within three rings, no pressing ‘one for this and two for that’. We have a full Customer Service Charter which explains this in more detail.
