Services for freelancers, sole traders and the self-employed

Who are we?

If our name sounds familiar, don’t be surprised. Dolan Accountancy was set up by Simon J Dolan, the man behind the well-known brands SJD Accountancy and Easy Accountancy. After selling the business in 2014, Simon stepped away from the industry for three years, but watched the market very closely – deciding in 2017 to come back into the accountancy world that he knows so well, but to do things a little differently. We thought it might help if he explains why . . . 

Introducing Dolan Accountancy

“I believe that enabling each client to have proactive advice from their dedicated accountant is vital, but many firms have moved away from this level of service in favour of a more impersonal approach. These companies, and even those who have retained an element of personal service, are not embracing new technologies to make their clients’ lives easier – choosing instead to use technology to increase their own margins and to mask internal inefficiencies.  

I wanted to start again from scratch, with no legacy issues, providing you with a service that is second-to-none, based on my years of experience in building up the UK’s largest accountancy firm for contractors, freelancers, sole traders and the self-employed. My experience in other industries such as aviation and engineering has helped me to understand how efficient processes can transform my business and yours, and this is what we intend to do. I look forward to taking that journey with you.”

The outcome of all this is Dolan Accountancy – dedicated accountancy delivering a combination of experience, service and technology for freelancers, sole traders and the self-employed –  from just £40.00 + VAT per month, one of the lowest rates in the industry.
