de garis accounting Limited specialises in cloud accounting systems and outsourced finance director (FD) services, for businesses who don’t require a full-time FD but want the benefits they provide.

Diane de Garis, former FD at Northern Trust, set up the practice in 2014, after a career break to spend time with family.  Di wanted to run her own business and to empower other businesses to become more successful.

Mandy Pratt, former FD at Vets4Pets, joined Di as Partner in 2017 and brings experience of working closely with small business from start up phase right the way through to exit and sales further down the road.

de garis accounting are the first (and only at the time of writing) gold Xero Partners in Guernsey.  Xero is an online accounting software with all the time-saving tools you need to grow your business. Xero is always secure and reliable and supported by a team of experts 24/7.

Xero & Cloud Accounting

So how do they take that numbers magic and make it work for you and your business?  Cloud technology.  More specifically, Xero.

It allows you and your accountant to access your information at any time, in any place.  Keep track of your incomings and outgoings, take care of automated invoicing and debtor control.  It makes your life easier and lets you to concentrate on the bit you want to be doing – running a successful business.


degaris accounting look at Bookkeeping services a little differently.  They want to support you in a way that lets you concentrate on running your business, rather than dealing with endless paperwork.

They do this by harnessing the magic of Receipt-Bank, which integrates beautifully with Xero.  It allows you to keep on top of your invoices and receipts using your phone, just take a photo and hit “upload”. It then ‘magically’ appears in Xero.  That’s it!

System Implementation

de garis accounting can also help you to implement Xero and add on systems, such as GeoOps, Workflowmax, Unleashed, Tradify and lots more.  More than just an accountancy firm – they want to help you review your business system needs and implement the systems that will transform the way you run your business.

Business Advice & FD Services

So the numbers are sorted, but what happens next?  What if you had a top notch FD on board to provide oversight over the complicated bits and to work with you to take your great ideas and turn them into actions?  To help you interpret the numbers, reach your full potential and achieve your business goals?

Great! But if you’re like the majority of small and medium sized businesses on the island and either can’t afford or don’t need a full-time FD on board, talk to de garis accounting – their outsourced FD services might be just what you need.

Management Reporting

Do you have all the information you need to plan for the future and achieve your business goals?  Does your business have regular management reporting to give you the information you need to really understand your business and make informed decisions?

Or do you have information on lots of different systems and no way to pull it all together?

Let de garis accounting show you the funky reporting options they have available – from detailed financial reports to colour coded dashboards that bring together financial and non-financial systems to give you an at a glance overview of your business and turn your data into powerful management information.

Start ups

de garis accounting work with lots of start ups and can help get you up and running and answer all your questions about setting up.  They’ll even give you a checklist to guide you through the process and always have special offers for start ups (such as free set up on Xero).
