“As the owner of a small digital agency, I really didn’t have the time to spend trying to manage the finances. I’d battle through sending pdf invoices to clients every Friday and trying to keep track of where the money was going. Hoping it came in on time and that my year-end profit margin was good. My business was growing, but I was flying blind. I couldn’t see an alternative. But SDCO could. Shane took my mess, created an elegant and robust system, setting up Xero, and automating a shocking amount of work. It took a big push initially, but since it’s been in place, I enjoy my business more. I know it’s profitable. I have more time to spend thinking strategically about the future”

“We needed a more robust accounting system to manage the finances better. Shane listened to our current challenges and goals and outlined the options available. He set up our new accounting system, Xero, and transferred over all of our existing financial data. This has streamlined our finance processes and resulted in very significant cost savings. We have better visibility on our numbers which allows us to make better decisions. The user experience of our new accounting system for us and our customers has vastly improved. It also saves us time every week that we can now use to focus on other areas of the business.”

“It is such a relief to have all my taxes looked after. Before this, I had tried to sort it out myself for over a year with no progress. I could never get anyone on the phone or find the right person to speak to in Revenue. SDCO then sorted everything for me. I got a huge tax refund of lodged into my bank. They helped me sort out my pension mess too, which has given me a lump sum payment and a recurring income for the rest of my life.”
SDCO provides accounting, tax & CFO solutions to growing businesses.
We combine our finance expertise, with powerful financial software to give you access to a trusted advisor and to streamline the running of your finances.
SDCO is run by Shane Dolan. His take on this:
“After working in Deloitte I joined a smaller accounting firm and gained direct experience in helping business owners to manage their finances. Once I qualified as a chartered accountant, tax advisor and financial advisor I thought I was in a great position to help business owners. But I realised that traditional accounting takes too long and happens to late to be useful for making smarter and faster business decisions. For many, traditional accounting is a painful non value added box ticking exercise. Growing up in a family business, I experienced these pain points and struggles first hand.
But now, the right combination of finance expertise and financial software can give you cost effective solutions which can help transform your business and your life.
We use the best financial practices taken from working directly with some of the world’s leading accounting firms and multinational companies and apply these to growing businesses. We also leverage our diverse network of global business connections working within large multinationals and the best accounting firms across the world, to provide world class solutions to growing businesses.
We help you to make smarter and faster decisions which is based on data from today, not 12 months ago. The end result means two simple things for the business owner; more money and more time.
