The human talking accountants

If you don’t know or want to understand accountancy lingo, then you’re in the right place.

Founded in 2014 by Marina Legge, our idea was to create a friendly and welcoming jargon-free accountants for small business owners and individuals.

Now, one of Buckinghamshire’s leading tax, accounting and business advisory firms, all our clients love the fact ‘we talk human’ so they always know exactly what’s going on and what they need to do.

And because our team of skilled staff are all experts in their own way, whether you’re looking to start a business, need VAT advice or want someone to take care of your bookkeeping, we’re happy to help.

Give us a call or drop in for a cuppa to find out how we could help you.

Marina Legge, Director

Qualifying as an accountant in 1999, Marina is a Chartered Certified Accountant whose experience has covered working in practices both big and small and advising businesses of all sizes and types including charities and not-for-profit.

Responsible for new client enquiries, self-assessment tax returns and providing advice and training on accountancy software, Marina loves nothing more than helping clients understand and grow their business. All she asks in return is for clients to get stuff to her and her team on a timely basis. Don’t, and you’ll see a very different Marina!

With a passion for jigsaws and watching MotoGP, Marina loves nothing more than a roast dinner of pork and crackling with lashings of apple sauce.

Michelle Donner, Administration Assistant

If Chimes were an orchestra, then Michelle would be the conductor. As well as making sure the Chimes team have everything they need to do their jobs, she also ensures they keep on time and stay in harmony with one another.

And with a background in office management and bookkeeping she’s definitely the best person for the job. Responsible for chasing VAT returns, self-assessment information and basically keeping track of what’s needed by when, Michelle thrives on the variety that comes with the role.

With three children and a fur baby, Michelle is also super busy outside work, and loves nothing more than getting together with all her family and treating them to her famous Wednesday roast (yes, we said Wednesday!).

Jess Holdship, Trainee Accountant

Jess joined Chimes straight from A-levels after deciding her love of numbers meant becoming an accountant was the perfect career choice.

An AAT Level 3 qualified bookkeeper, Jess is responsible for managing clients’ bookkeeping and is busy studying for her AAT Level 3 in Accountancy so she can expand her skill set.

Jess thoroughly enjoys working at Chimes as it offers a friendly learning environment. In fact, she’s already learnt the art of diplomacy and patience when she’s waiting for clients to get her the right information!

Outside of work you’ll find Jess playing golf or bingo and, being part Italian, her favourite food is Spaghetti Carbonara.
