SJD to launch Express Accountancy franchise

A NEW accountancy franchise is to launch in the UK, courtesy of contractors and freelancers specialist SJD Accountancy.

SJD, owned and founded by Essex entrepreneur Simon Dolan, has launched Express Accountancy.

The new franchise has kicked off with offices in Brighton, Newcastle and Hemel Hempstead, and will offer low-cost accountancy and tax services to the self-employed and those running SMEs. The service will include a dedicated accountant, and flexible payment terms.

Express, which is looking for more franchisees, will offer support packages, including sales and marketing tools. Franchisees will also have the option of selling the franchise back into Express in the future.

Express Accountancy franchise development director, Daniel Moss, said: “Franchising is the perfect solution for accountants who want to work for themselves but don’t want to take the risk of setting up from scratch. We have the experience of over 22 years working with both accountants and clients so we feel we have the expertise and the experience to help potential franchisees set up on their own and go on to build successful businesses.”

SJD regularly features in the Accountancy Age Top50 +50 survey of firms, currently placed at 32nd. It won Small Firm of the Year in the 2004 Accountancy Age Awards, and was highly commended in the 2012 British Accountancy Awards.
