Steven was instrumental in helping me lead the MBO of Palletower (GB) Ltd in October 2013. The 12 month long process took many twists and turns both financially and emotionally. His calm, clear and insightful guidance throughout this ensured a deal that gave the business the structure and knowledge to move was completed successfully. He’s remained a valued and trusted advisor to the business.

The team at KJG advised us during the acquisition of the Black Dog Bar Group and most recently when we received private equity investment for NQ64.  The teams expertise and knowledge, combined with a pragmatic approach, was invaluable to us on both deals.

Great firm of accountants to have on your side, very knowledgeable and always on the end of the phone when you need them. I particularly like the personal touch and attention to detail that KJG provide. The range of services is perfect for our size and type of business.

Thanks to all at KJG!


Our business operates on 5 continents with key overseas operations and therefore we require our advisors to have a strong grasp of international tax matters. KJG have been able to advise not only on the tax regimes of each country but also on the implications of tax residency, withholding taxes, profit extraction and transfer pricing. Their assistance, together with that of local advisors has been invaluable in structuring our worldwide affairs in a compliant and tax efficient manner.
