When you are hit by the realisation that life as you know it will never be the same, it completely floors you. Both my parents have now gone and I am parentless – I became an orphan at the very moment that my dad died. The enormity of the loss was so immense and, at the time, I felt like my very foundations had been shaken. The fact that natural order dictates that parents should die before their children did nothing to soften the overwhelming sense of grief and loneliness that I felt and still feel. I will never see them again.
When mum left us 26 years ago, dad took care of everything and I was protected from many of the practical things that needed to be done. But this time, it was down to me to sort everything out and I had to learn from scratch and at the back of my mind I knew that probate had to be completed. So I went online and searched under the word `probate’. Well, that was a mind field in itself! And who do you trust to take it on for you? I decided, instead, to speak to family members and friends who had already gone through it and to ask for recommendations. That’s how I came across Jacqui at JT Accounts. Her name came up twice and so I called her. Jacqui had such a lovely caring nature about her and explained the process to me so that I understood what needed to be done. She was so knowledgeable and put my mind at ease with every question she answered. So I chose to go with her. I provided her with the information needed and she took over from there. She made it simple for me and almost held my hand through it all. The sense of relief that I ended up feeling, having gone with Jacqui, was invaluable.
If someone were to ask me for advise on this, I would say to go by recommendation and my recommendation would definitely be to go with Jacqui.

My brother and I found ourselves in the position of resolving our families estate. JT accounts were recommended to us regarding the Capital Gains Tax on the sale of multiple properties. Jacqui was very straightforward to deal with and also very patient giving us sound advice when we were confused by the often complex tax rules in place. On top of some other complex issues, one of the sales collapsed, which dragged things out, but Jacqui was very patient and kept checking in to see how things were going. I feel that JT accounts did their very best to represent us and communicate information to us in an understandable format. We remain grateful that we were able to count on them during one a very difficult time for our family and would definitely seek their help again in the future.
Thank you again for all your help.

We were very happy when we used your probate services when my grandad passed away. You took a huge weight off my mums shoulders when you took over and dealt with it all for her. We always recommend you now too.

THANK YOU SO MUCH to everyone at JT AccountS for your invaluable services. As a small business owner I can’t thank you enough for your reliable, hassle-free accounting services
Peter and Maureen Caskey, 2021
We are very happy with JT Accounts and glad that we put our meagre finances in their hands, safe to say that my wife and I just glaze over at the thought of tax returns, CGT, and anything financial really. We always get a quick response to any queries we may have. JT Accounts take an enormous amount of pressure off us as we would no doubt have got ourselves in a mess over recent years.
S & E Chaaya, 2021
Thank you again, I got your details through LYDS and I am so pleased and relieved I chose you from all the other recommendations, your professionalism and advice have really helped Elie and I understand the process. I am so grateful you took us on, bearing in mind we only had 1 week left to file!
David Jacques, 2021
You always reply promptly to any questions or concerns, the advice is always clear, tailored to my business needs and actionable.

I am so grateful for having found Jacqui Tetley and her company, in my desperation finding her advertisement in the funeral parlour brochure.
I had three weeks to settle all my mother’s affairs in London before returning to San Francisco, my home. What should have been relatively simple became extremely complicated by the fact that the Executor, my cousin, refused to perform her duties (closing my mother’s bank account) and also refused to renounce her duties!!!
Jacqui steadfastly, for two years, dealt with the phone calls, form filling, filing, refiling, rephoning etc etc that this came to need. In all that time I never doubted that she would represent my needs entirely. I felt absolutely confident and trusting in having her help me with this time-consuming problem which was boggling to consider from 6000 miles away. She was always reassuring when we spoke and she enabled me not to worry about this bureaucratic and emotional issue.
I cannot recommend her enough. She is extremely conscientious, warm, and competent. I feel like I hit the jackpot when I found her. Thank you so much Jacqui!! I really could not have done this without you.
Davor Travica, 2020
Jacqui was recommended to me by her sister and I will forever be grateful to her sister for that. This was sometimes in September 2020 when I had some issues with a tax man and was really lost not knowing what to do. The first time I spoke with Jacqui on the phone felt like I have known her for years. She was so kind, patient, sympathetic and very reassuring advising me that all will be ok and whatever the issue I have it will be sorted. Once we started to speak about the tax issue I knew straight away that I am with the right person for this job. She knew exactly what was needed to sort this problem of mine and advised me to gather some documents and arranged a zoom meeting to go over it in more detail. Couple of days later we had our zoom meeting and Jacqui made me so at ease that it felt like I was talking to an old friend. We went through all the documents that she asked me to provide, she was happy that all was in order and the next thing we did, we filled a tax return form and she sent it to the taxman. It was quick, it was easy and once we finished our zoom meeting I felt a relief that all has been done and there is nothing to worry about any more and I will be receiving my refund very soon as per Jacqui’s advice. True enough, couple of weeks later I received a letter from the taxman advising me that I am indeed due a tax rebate and a week later this was in my bank. I rang Jacqui straight away to advice as I couldn’t believe how quickly this was processed. I was so happy and I was so impressed with such a great job that Jacqui has done. Everything she said she would do, she did and more. Thank you Jacqui for everything. You are not just an expert when it comes to accounts but you are a wonderful and kind lady. I will certainly come back to you in the future and will recommend you to my family, my friends and to anybody needing a great but kind accountant. You truly are an amazing lady in every way.
My father passed away in 2016 and left his estate between three of us. JT AccountS dealt with the Probate & Estate Administration smoothly and efficiently. During what was an extremely tense and at times contentious period of our lives, Jacqui kept a cool head and was able to treat the situation with the sensitivity it required.
We are all extremely grateful to Jacqui for the work she did.
Thank you for taking the time with us today to review our accounts.
We were delighted by the progress you and your team have made in restructuring our accounts and reconciling the figures to ensure we are utilising more of the features of Quickbooks.
Given the growing nature of the business and the introduction of “making tax digital” the move to you and your team with quickbooks experience and collaborative approach could not have come at a better time. I guess we could have done it earlier! Certainly we would having been struggling had we not made the move this year.
Whilst there is still work to be done in cleaning up after the handover and initial issues caused by making tax digital, we can clearly see the benefits in your approach with quickbooks to record all transactions and given us comprehensive reporting on our financial position, cost control, employee payroll, dividends, CIS reporting and balance sheet. You have also highlight options for project cost control which could be of real value in the future.
Thanks again to you and you team for all the hard work so far, it is really appreciated.

2019, Director, Kennedy Consultancy Services Ltd
I wanted to thank you for taking care of my company accounts with such professionalism.
I had been with my previous accountant for over 12 years and hardly had any contact with him. I would do all my own bookkeeping at the end of each year and just drop it off to his offices where he would collate everything else and submit them to HMRC. I didn’t really have a working relationship with him at all.
I was under the impression that it would be very difficult to move away from my original accountant, however, you proved this to be wrong and when I transferred my accounts over to your practice, you took control of everything needed to be done and made this an easy exercise.
Your nurturing nature and complete understanding of the whole accountancy requirements each business must adhere to makes you a perfect partner for any business.
I have recommended you to many businesses that needed help with their finances, whether it be standard bookkeeping or general annual accounts. You have also helped friends with setting up the correct online payment systems and I know that anyone who works with you will feel the care and compassion that you genuinely offer when helping them to get the best out of their business.
Jacqui, I am so happy to have met you and will continue to promote your services to businesses that need help with their finances. I will spread the word that it is easy to chance accountants if people don’t feel that they are getting the best from their current practitioner.
I look forward to working with you for a very long time.
I would like to share with everyone my experience with working with the wonderful Jacqui at JT AccountS.
When I started working for myself, as a newly arrived person from Greece, I really didn’t know very much about the UK tax system, expectations of record keeping, invoicing and the myriad of accounting and financial matters that a self-employed person needs to undertake. It would keep me awake at night.
Jacqui sat me down and smoothed the way for me, advising me honestly about what I should do and what information I needed to gather. She never tried to oversell and quite to the contrary, she was always will to go the extra mile, over and beyond what she said she would deliver on.
Jacqui has a wonderful eye for detail and all her work is thorough and meticulous and she always takes the time to guide me through the numbers and all the options.
I want to personally thank Jacqui and her team at JT AccountS for the outstanding work you’ve done for us over the past financial year.
As a creative person who focuses more on designing brands than understanding balance sheets, your help and advice have been invaluable.
Not only have you set us up with software that saves us hours of time in generating and tracking invoices, you’ve also managed to minimize our corporation tax.
We would most likely not have made it into our 4th year of business if we had not met you, so thank you very much for your continued support.
I will recommend you and JT AccountS to any business without hesitation.
Thank you so much for your fabulous service. I would have no problem in recommending your company. Thank you

DAT Electrical, 2016
I have been using this accountant since I started out in in business in 2008; to be honest without them I would be lost. I knew nothing about running the financial side of my business, as a qualified electrician, why would I? JT AccountS are patient to a fault and always on hand to answer any questions you might have and managed everything for me from bookkeeping to full account production and filing. They are personable, knowledgeable and always trying to get me to understand my figures better.
I am a sole trader. I have been with this accountant for 20 years. I have no mind set, skills or time for finances. They have supported me the whole time, explaining even the simplest things and supporting both my professional and personal finances. Many times, they have gone above and beyond to help me and keep things simple and clear so that I haven’t needed to get stressed. They really have been the back bone of my working life and freed me to get on with the job that I love. Thank you.
