Whatever your goals, large or small, SJO is ready to support and advise. Whether you’re a start up, poised to expand or simply looking for clearer and more manageable financial support, SJO can help. Above all, we’re keen to work with you as a fellow business partner to achieve your objectives, rather than a distant voice or e-mail in the dark. We can:

  • Save you tax

  • Complete all your burdensome paperwork for you providing a no-nonsense and uncomplicated appraoch

  • Handle the bureaucracy of HMRC on your behalf

  • Ensure you stay compliant at all times

  • Keep up-to-date with the latest financial changes so we know how best to advise and protect your interests

  • And finally, but fundamentally, always be at the end of the phone whenever you need advice or support

Our clients tell us that they value our emphasis on relationships, our attention to detail and the security our fee arrangements deliver. Essentially, they like to know that when they call us they’ll talk to someone who knows their business well and values their specific needs. After all, clear and up-to-date financial advice is crucial in our current economic environment.

So at SJO we seek valuable business relationships with our clients. And that’s why our clients always mention three main things they like about working with us:

  1. A fixed fee policy at the start of the relationship that guarantees no unpleasant surprises later on.

  2. A high standard of work delivered on time, every time

  3. Support and business advice that is always available at the end of the phone, no matter how big or small the request

6 reasons to work with us

  1. Client care comes first. We recognize that you and your business are unique and so are your requirements.
  2. Your first meeting with us will be free, with absolutely no obligation.
  3. You will be offered a choice of fixed fees or flexible billing whichever works better for you.
  4. Your property accounts and tax returns will be prepared promptly and efficiently with speedy responses to all correspondence.
  5. We promise not to baffle you with jargon. We like to make complex matters as simple as possible.
  6. Our fees are competitive and flexible.
