SJD successfully completes APSCo compliance audit

SJD Accountancy, the UK’s largest accountants to contractors with over 11,000 Limited company contractors, freelancers and consultant clients further demonstrated their commitment to compliance standards by being the first accountancy firm to undergo a full review and compliance audit conducted by Saffery Champness and CRS Solicitors.

Saffery Champness is one of the UK’s top 20 firms of chartered accountants and the fifteenth-largest accountancy practice in the UK. On completing the audit, SJD Accountancy has now earned themselves affiliate membership status of The Association of Professional Staffing Companies also known as APSCo - the UK’s leading professional recruitment industry body.

Marilyn Davidson, APSCo Director said “We are delighted that SJD have successfully completed their compliance audit and reference checks for APSCo membership. The APSCo brand is important to us and our members and is underpinned by best practice.”

Recruiters recommending an MSC compliant and audited firm of accountants to their contractor candidates can feel confident in continuing to refer the UK’s largest accountants to contractors - SJD Accountancy.  

Managing Director Simon Dolan commented, “With MSC legislations, Debt Transfer and the introduction of AWR we understand that it has never been more important for recruiters to recommend a compliant firm of accountants, which is why SJD Accountancy worked with Saffery Champness to undergo a full compliance audit.

We are delighted that SJD Accountancy have successfully completed the compliance process required by APSCo and feel a large burden will be lifted from recruiters who are looking to recommend compliant accountancy firms, and for contractors who are looking for a safe pair of hands to manage their tax affairs.”

Commenting on their professionalism throughout the audit, Nicola Pitcher auditor for Saffery said: “It has been a real pleasure to work with an accounting team that manages its client’s affairs professionally, diligently and with an awareness of the key tax issues.  Our compliance process is designed to be robust and SJD were very proactive in embracing our approach.”
