Sarah-Jane Edwards (Sj as she’s known) has been an accountant for more than 20 years; working with businesses both large and small. Sj saw the need for a specialist service for Salon and Barbershop owners as their accountants just didn't have the time to fully understand the business and tax quirks of the hair & beauty industry.
Sj was shortly joined by Andrew Barraclough, a chartered accountant for more than 20 years, who had worked in London, Leeds and Edinburgh.
Between them, Salonfrog has gone from strength to strength!
“Although we’re based in Edinburgh, our Clients can be based anywhere in the UK because we use cutting edge apps and software.
Having said that, our values are traditional, the level of service we offer is really important to us
and we like to talk with our clients whenever we can. We do whatever we can to ensure our Clients are successful!”
Sj, Salonfrog Founder and Director
Sj looks after our Clients' compliance side:
which means ensuring that everything from the book-keeping and payroll, through to HMRC reporting is completed each month.
Sj is a whizz at all things HMRC and enjoys dialling into their regular webinar updates; also having regular phone contact with them. She’s also a pedantic stickler for detail!
Sj has had a love of hair & fashion from very young and in her free time still designs some of her own clothes!
“The people who work in the hair and beauty industry are fascinating. It’s an industry where I feel I can make a BIG difference to a Salon Owner’s life with the services we offer.”
Andrew concentrates on our Clients' business and tax planning.
Andrew loves tax and technology and can often be found lost in one of his tax magazines!
Andrew practices yoga and playing the bass guitar (but not at the same time) and Sj jokes that despite this, Andrew creaks a bit more now than he used to!
“Running a salon business is tough. We know that. What we set out to do is take a load of things off the Salon Owner’s hands, so they can get on with doing what they do best. It ends up being a really powerful partnership.”
We specialise in independent Salons & Barbershops
We really enjoy this industry
We're based in Edinburgh but you don't have to be!
