About Us

We are at our happiest when we are helping you make sense of your numbers or saving you money, even better when we do both!

As a team, we have the perfect balance of skills and experience in order to work together with you to get you the results you desire. Whether you have systems and processes in place or need us to do this for you, we can hit the floor running in no time at all.
Covering London and the Surrey/Hants border along with all of the surrounding areas, we can also provide cloud based services allowing remote support for all other UK territories.

Jane Capel

Director
I set up Think Smart Accounts (formally JC Accounting Solutions) in 2015, having previously managed business finances for over 20 years, both in the corporate blue chip & SME markets. I gained a wealth of experience in a variety of roles and industries, including Seton House Group, Thomson Directories Ltd and Infor (United Kingdom) Ltd.

I am a qualified Chartered Management Accountant and a registered Member in Practice with CIMA

I am passionate about supporting you in untangling yourself from the administrative burden of business and personal accounting, whether it be in handling payrolls, VAT, transaction postings, the year end accounts & filings, even dealing directly with HMRC on your behalf when needed.

My team share my passion and we are all on hand to help you. You set the scope for our involvement and then leave it to us whilst you go about doing what you do best, running and growing your business.
