Diane de Garis BSc FCA

Managing Director

Diane studied Pure Mathematics at university and then qualified as a Chartered Accountant (ACA) with KPMG in 1999.  She became a fellow of the institute (FCA) in 2011.

Diane has a background of project management and CFO roles in banking and fund administration, as well as general audit, prior to taking a career break to raise her young children and setting up de garis accounting and then DNA.

Diane delivers a refreshingly personal and caring attitude towards offering an accountancy service in Guernsey.  Her aim is to provide an exceptionally high level of customer and business care to individuals and businesses on the island.

Diane has used many different accounting systems, but quickly realised Xero really is beautiful accounting software.

Diane is a Xero expert, has been a Xero certified advisor since 2015 and has helped set up hundreds of businesses on Xero. Diane loves cloud accounting and the change it can make to small businesses, and Xero is always at the start of that journey or app stack.

On a more personal note…Diane is married to Rick and they have two children.  She loves spending time with her family, especially off exploring in their motorhome!
