Meet The Team


Jaine Best FCA

When I started Accountably Ltd in 2003 I was aware that many smaller businesses were not receiving the level of service they deserved from the larger firms of accountants. In particular they did not have sufficient access to a senior accountant and as a result often felt their affairs were not given priority.

I have over 25 years experience in practice. I am a fully qualified accountant and Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales. Having spent part of my career working in a tax department of a larger firm I am also member of the Institute's Tax Faculty.

I have a son and daughter and live locally with my husband Paul. My hobbies include reading, travel and an obsession with all things tax related.

Kirsty Lovett FCCA

After taking a career break to have children I was pleased to be asked to join the team at Accountably in 2012.

I have 16 years experience working in practice, specialising in small and medium sized owner-managed businesses and also a variety of charitable organisations. I was awarded Fellowship of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants in 2001.

I live in Hamble with my husband Darren, 2 sons and 2 dogs. In my spare time I enjoy gardening, cooking and entertaining family and friends.

Amanda James ACIB

I qualified with Institute of Certified Bookkeepers in 2005 and started work in a self employed capacity providing book keeping services to small businesses and subcontract services to Accountably Ltd.

I was delighted when I was asked to join Accountably in 2011. I get great satisfaction from organising clients data to present a meaningful picture of their businesses.

I have a son and daughter and have lived in Sholing with my husband Jason for 10 years. In my spare time I enjoy making jewellery, sewing and reading.

Lauren Cole MAAT

I am a fully qualified member of the Association of Accounting Technicians and have over 10 years experience in general accountancy practice. I joined the team at Accountably in January 2015.

In my spare time I enjoy water sports, gardening, cooking, long walks and socialising. I live locally in Bursledon.
