Sharrel Mendes - Tax Senior Associate

What is your background?

I graduated from university with a degree in Accounting Studies and commenced my career in Tax at the Revenue Service (formerly known as the Guernsey Income Tax Office), where I spent just under seven years dealing with Guernsey personal tax.

Why did you choose to work for Grant Thornton?

I was drawn to Grant Thornton; not only was I offered the opportunity to expand my pre-existing skills and take a qualified course, but I was also given the chance to be part of a very well-connected, global organisation. This has inspired me to feel that I can make a difference.

Describe your role and what you like about your position?

As a Tax Senior Associate I assist with the preparation of personal and corporate tax returns for Guernsey and the UK. I enjoy helping our diverse range of clients to ensure their tax obligations are met and I like the challenge of providing tax planning with the continual evolution of tax laws.

Why do you like working at Grant Thornton?

The people at Grant Thornton are one of the best elements of working here. All my colleagues are really friendly, approachable and supportive. This makes it an easy environment to work in. I am also very grateful for the opportunity Grant Thornton has given me to undertake the ATT qualification.
