Dolan have been brilliant for me so far as a first timer. Freeagent couldn’t be easier to use and they – well Lauren actually – is lightning fast in responding to emails. Couldn’t ask for more at the moment.

My named accountant is Lauren and I have been very pleased with the service, advice and support I have received. When I was setting up the company and had won my first contract I tended to drop her an email as and when I had questions; Lauren would always answer either that day or first thing in the morning the following day. This has worked for me but I also know if I need to speak to her on the phone then she would also be available – so it’s an ideal service for me. I’d have no hesitation recommending Dolan and I’m even trying to get my brother to switch as well!
