Welcome from John Merrien

Thank you for your interest in Books & Co and welcome to our website.

I founded Books & Co in 2012 when I perceived a gap in the market for a different type of accountancy practice in Guernsey. I envisaged a new kind of relationship between small businesses and their advisors based on the traditional quality of service expected from Chartered Accountants facilitated through cutting edge technology. From that time to this, we have grown, adapted and learned a huge amount along the way while remaining true to our founding principles.

Today we are Guernsey’s premier cloud accounting Chartered Accountants. We were the first Xero Practice in Guernsey, We were the first to be awarded silver status and in 2016 we proudly achieved Gold Partner Status. We are also Pro advisors for both Quickbooks Online and desktop.

We have not been afraid to try new things and challenge established markets and encourage the same mindset in our clients. We believe that business is an adventure. We encourage enterprise and look to support everyone from those taking their first leap of faith into the unknown to people looking to retire and move on from the business they have built.

Whoever you are and whatever has brought you to read these words, we welcome you as a stakeholder in our company and we hope that we will get to share in your journey as you become a part of ours.
