Having founded the practice in 2002 Angus continues to service his own clients and specialises in audit and assurance services, liquidations and general business advice. He came to Guernsey in 1985, having qualified in Glasgow, and has spent time with Coopers & Lybrand and BDO as well as a spell with ICI. A bit of an academic, he continues to lecture on Accountancy and Company Law and is retained as a consultant by the GTA University Centre. A keen sportsman, Angus can still be found playing tennis or football (should he be doing this at his age) and has represented both Guernsey and the Channel Islands many times at tennis including at two island games. He is also looking forward to reading the books he has been collecting for the last 30 years but never had time to read
Chantelle co-founded the practice in 2002 having previously worked in a senior tax position with a large accountancy firm. She maintains responsibility for accounts preparation, as well as looking after all tax related aspects of the business and the day to day management of the practice. Thankfully she is lucky to have a supportive, hard-working team around her so that she can also focus on being mum to four beautiful children.
Charlie moved to Guernsey in 2004 and went onto to qualify in Guernsey with a large accountancy firm. He moved to the practice in April 2010 following in the footsteps of his father who took a similar path into general practice. He works predominately with our audit clients but also completes assurance engagements, accounts preparation and tax work. When not working Charlie spends most of his time enjoying his new family and fighting back the growing list of things to fix in his house and garden.
Sheena deals with all of the firm’s compliance and so is often one of the first friendly faces that new clients will meet as she takes them through the set-up procedures. Sheena has an impressive sporting background having played volleyball for the island in four Island Games. She now chooses to spend more time on her other passion for the arts; drawing, painting and illustrating as well as volunteering for the Guernsey Literary Festival.
Sarah mans the engine room for our company accounts production. She works on our incorporated businesses and some sole traders producing their end of year accounts and tax computations. She understands our clients as she comes with a long pedigree in local business having worked internally for both finance and non-finance companies for many years prior to working in practice. Pedigree is an appropriate word to use as Sarah’s main interest outside of work are her lovely Beagles Barney, Biscuit and Mojo. With 10 years of Dog Shows under her belt she has taken her dogs to many shows; in Guernsey, Jersey and the UK – including Crufts.
Jan deals with most of our personal tax clients and is our hotline to the Tax Office. She is well placed to deal with the variety which crosses her desk having worked in many local businesses and often in client facing roles. Outside of the office she can be found exploiting her many musical talents through her involvement with the Chamber and Bach Choirs, and her regular performances for the Guernsey Folk Club, including appearances at the popular Sark Folk Festival.
Sandra joined the team when Kemp Le Tissier took over the book of business from Le Lacheur Picot Chartered Accountants in April 2011. Having initially started as a receptionist / telephonist / book keeper she has now been re-titled as Office Manager as her list of jobs and responsibilities has become ever longer. With 14 years prior experience in the hotel and estate agency trade she very much enjoys meeting and talking to people and is the welcoming face of the office.
Sue is a hard-working part-timer preparing our sole trader accounts and running our client payroll. She is otherwise kept very busy with two self-catering units, helping with her husband’s building business and raising three sons. She is an active member of the Guernsey Women’s Institute and enjoys cooking - Sue’s baking creations never last long in the KLT kitchen!
Michelle is one of our experienced bookkeepers and accounts preparers having qualified as an ACA when perms were all the rage. She has since gained vast experience having worked for a variety of local trading businesses both in –house and in practice and can also turn her hand to management accounts, budgets and payroll. Michelle works primarily with our sole trader and small company clients and when not in the office rousing the troops is likely to be causing jealousy in the office as she enjoys another adventurous trip abroad!
