ABOUT US

Who Are We?

We began in 2003 as a bookkeeping practice. A relatively unambitious-sounding start, but we felt at the outset that what clients wanted was clear communication, that they wanted an understanding of their financial position, and that they wanted great value. It seemed our clients felt the same, and we found our business grew to include tax, management accounts and a range of business consultancy.

Clarity and value continued to be our lodestones, and we became increasingly convinced that we could improve both by teaching our clients a useful and relevant set of skills from our toolbox. And so our training company was born. We are one of the few practising accountants in the area that also have a proper classroom environment in which to learn. We feel that this working knowledge and experience puts us where we are today as arguably the leading provider of Sage accountancy training in Wales.

Training Courses

We aim to make bookkeeping and accountancy quick and simple and to remove unnecessary costs from your accountancy fees.

  1. Sage Training

    Our Sage courses are delivered to small groups by accountancy-trained experts who speak plain, understandable English. You’ll be working hands-on with the latest Sage software and you’ll have plenty of opportunities to talk to your trainer, who’ll take every care to make sure you’re happy and confident.

    In the case of our Sage training courses, you’ll also receive an official, recognised qualification from Sage.

    All of our courses include free follow-up support to ensure that what you learned in the classroom follows through to work for you in the real world.

  2. Bookkeeping Courses

    Whether you are looking for a job, or setting up your business we are sure that we have a course that suits you. We offer various levels of training in bookkeeping & payroll, so if you need to know the basics or want to improve your skills & performance, we will help you achieve your goals. Our trainers are accountants & bookkeepers in real life; therefore you can expect a high quality service from us – we really know what we are talking about.

  3. Auto Enrolment

    Auto enrolment is a new pension reform law introduced by the government [Pension Act 2008]. Under the new pension legislation all employers must offer a workplace pension scheme and automatically enrol eligible workers. This law has been introduced to encourage and help more people to start saving for their retirement due to increase strain on the State benefits system. It is vital that people start to contribute to a pension scheme at an early stage in their working lives to provide them with extra savings that will top up State pension.

Milestones

Brief History of Our Company

2015

Sage informed us that we were one of the largest independent trainers of Sage in the UK. We are one of the only trainers that still offer classroom training with the Sage exam certification.

2013

We decided we would branch out and start teaching ICB (Institute of Certified Bookkeepers) courses in bookkeeping and payroll. These were long term courses usually lasting around 8 months in length. We were the only training providers in Wales that offered both classroom based courses and distance learning courses too.

2010

I became University lecturer for both the university of Glamorgan and Newport – they amalgamated and became the University of South Wales. We set up special 10 week courses to help small businesses use sage using the DEHOV project. JDH Training trained around 45 classes of business students over four years. This afforded my business extra exposure to many businesses and we increased our client base again.

2008

Set up JDH Training in response to the start of the recession. React funding was available in Wales to help train people and get them back into work. This was an excellent move in a number of different ways:

1. My training company became a marketing tool for my skills in the accounts practice. I got paid well to market my business!

2. I could train up my clients to take care of their bookkeeping and payroll to save on my fees. This made preparing their accounts easier at the end of the year and they felt like they were getting value for money.

3. I met lots of new businesses and sometimes they were ready for a change and a new accountant and I increased my client base.
