KJ Pittalis & Co. & Gilchrists merged in April 2012 to form Pittalis Gilchrist. The two firms were considered to be a natural fit and benefited from substantial synergies. The practice specialises in acting for owner managed businesses, providing a variety of accounting and taxation services. We have a loyal, dedicated workforce, who provide professional services to our clients and assist their businesses in moving forward.
KJ Pittalis & Co. was established in 1958 by KJ Pittalis who sadly passed away in January 2012. Continuation had been maintained throughout as his son John joined in 1986 after qualifying as a Chartered Accountant with Price Waterhouse.
Gilchrists was established in 1993 by George Christodoulou and had been based in Highgate, North London. Through effective marketing, the practice grew rapidly and soon became a well-respected firm with clients from a variety of business sectors. The philosophy from the outset had been to provide a cost-effective, efficient, personal, partner-led, high-value service.
Payroll has become an increasingly important function for clients and ourselves. The introduction of RTI and workplace pensions has meant further obligations being imposed on employers. As a result we have now four members in our team to provide continuity and back up, overseen by Elias who has been with the practice since 1989.
