Srinder Panesar FCCA

Srinder qualified as a Chartered Certified Accountant in 1997 and is now the go to person for Xero, Sage and Excel.

Calliope Jones MAAT
Accountant 

Calliope, (pronounced “Calep”) qualified as an AAT member and is now 3 exams away from becoming a Chartered Certified Accountant.​

Calliope is responsible for self-assessment tax returns, accounts for our business clients and a whole range of duties beyond that to ensure that Jays Clientele tax and accounting obligations are done quickly and in a timely fashion.

He has been with Jays since August 2016 and is the longest serving employee since Sylvia’s retirement (who’s threatening to come back!).

Calliope has many interests outside of work and study, his favourites being his car and boxing. He spends his spare money modifying his current car. However, insurance and finance costs are preventing him upgrading to a V8 powered car with all the trimmings, before they are outlawed!

Verity Smith ACCA
Chartered Certified Accountant

Verity joined Jays in 2018. In 2021, Verity achieved her AAT qualification. Building on this success, she achieved her aim of becoming a Chartered Certified Accountant, qualifying at the beginning of 2024. Throughout her tenure at Jays, Verity has not only grown in expertise but also in confidence.
She now confidently engages with some of the firm's largest clients. Verity plays a pivotal role at Jays, overseeing a substantial portfolio of clients. Her responsibilities span from providing Xero support to offering payroll services, monthly management accounts, and guidance on stock management. With her professional goals achieved, Verity now relishes the freedom of no longer having to spend her evenings buried in exam textbooks. Instead, she channels her energy into planning her next adventure, eagerly exploring potential holiday destinations. When she's not jet-setting, Verity dedicates a considerable amount of time to her two beloved rabbits, who enjoy a life of luxury under her care.

Srinder and Ram has been extremely helpful in sorting out our accounts (big mess) for my company due to the last accountants we had. Very nice people to deal with and make you feel at ease. Nothing too much trouble with them and also happy to help on phone or email and get back you the same day. Would highly recommend to anyone from a sole trader to Limited company.

After years of trying to do my 'small business' accounts myself, having no formal accounts skills or qualifications, I decided to seek professional help via Jays Accountants. I should have done it years ago! They are so very friendly, professional, helpful and knowledgeable and have already given me plenty of great advice to make the running of my business smoother and therefore, more effective, costs and logistically. I feel a great sense of relief having them only an email or call away, to sort something quickly and efficiently. I'm so glad I have them on board. As for cost, its very economical and not as much as you might think! Yes, I have to pay a little more now to have them but they are worth every penny to me. My accounts are correct and up to date. No more working to the wee hours to get my tax return in on time! That in itself is worth every penny! If you're thinking about getting an accountant or changing, call Jays. You be SO GLAD you did! I am! I'll never look back.

We recently switched to Jay's after receiving poor advice from another accountant, and the service has been brilliant so far. Ram & Srinder have made great recommendations for our business accounting, and set us up on a new system and provided training. If you have a small business and are looking for dedicated accountants who provide a personal and reliable service, Jay's is the one!

Been with Jay's Accountants a few years now. Very happy with the service, always reply to emails promptly and any queries dealt with fast. Having a Home Improvements company, during COVID-19 things haven't been easy, and like many others I had to stop working. The team at Jay's accountant helped me and my wife with the steps to take through the Government support schemes. Highly recommend
