About the employer

We are a firm of chartered accountants, auditors and tax advisors. We offer the personal service that one can only receive from a local accountant.

We were formed in 2007 by Seval Guryel and since then our client base has rapidly grown purely on our reputation to provide an excellent and personal service to our clients.

The world is changing fast, both in private and business life. There are more developments, opportunities and threats than ever before. Busy business owners need to concentrate their time and effort to run and grow their business and have limited time to also prepare their accounts and do the day-to-day book-keeping required. They need personal services and clear advice from their professional financial advisors and we hope to bridge that gap by understanding your needs and tailoring a service which meets your personal requirements.

At Guryel & Co the requirement to respond quickly and accurately with a thorough knowledge of our clients position and objectives is the cornerstone of our philosophy. We believe that accountants can only give good advice if they have a sound commercial understanding as well as the technical expertise. Our aim is to make a creative contribution to our clients. Whether they are small businesses, corporations or private individuals, we have found that this approach can really make a difference.
