MSC, Debt Transfer, AWR... It has never been more important to recommend a compliant firm of accountants.

As the UK’s largest accountants to limited company contractors and freelancers there is nothing more important to us than compliancy, service and the protection of both Contractor and Recruiter.

Beware of phoney and meaningless awards and accreditations!
Often it isn’t easy as a recruiter to know whether the logo, award, accreditation or even audit means anything when it comes to reviewing a PSL response, we all know marketing blurb can be very compelling. So it is therefore comforting to know that the information below confirms via authoritative third party references such as KPMG that SJD Accountancy is fully compliant with all MSC legislation and is recognised as an industry expert for IR35.

It is also good to know that no other firm of accountants in our industry has won more genuine awards for customer service and accounting excellence including awards from the Institute of Customer Service and Accountancy Age.
