About Us

Cleland & Co is a Guernsey owned, independent firm of Chartered Accountants and Registered Auditors which started business in 2003. Although we are a relatively young company, we were previously part of Ernst & Young. Our roots go back even further to Marshall, Hoare & Chandler, a predecessor firm of Ernst & Young in Guernsey, and we have been serving some of our clients for over 40 years.

Both of our directors, Harry Dick-Cleland and Chris Harvey, and all of our qualified staff, have 'Big Four' firm training and experience. Collectively, we have over 100 years of ‘Big Four’ firm experience serving Guernsey businesses.

Harry was previously a Partner at Ernst & Young from 1998 to 2003, having joined their Guernsey office in 1987. He trained with Ernst & Young in their Norwich office and also worked in their Cayman office.

Chris was previously a Senior Manager at Ernst & Young in their Guernsey office, having joined as a trainee in 1997. He left Ernst & Young in 2006 and was a Senior Manager at PriceWaterhouseCoopers in Auckland, New Zealand before joining Cleland & Co in 2008. 

Cleland & Co offer a full range of accountancy, audit, tax and business advisory services. Our portfolio includes a broad range of Guernsey clients including owner managed businesses and financial services companies.

We take pride in giving a timely, efficient and personal service together with staff continuity and experience.
