Chris Lane qualified as a chartered accountant in 1983, and in 1986 he joined Callingham Crane, becoming a partner in 1988. The firm then merged with Kingston Smith in 1991 where he has continued to develop his own portfolio of owner managed clients.
His client portfolio is spread across many business sectors and involves companies, partnerships and individuals. Chris therefore deals with not only audit accounting issues but also taxation issues for his clients. Chris is an active member of the firm's Leisure & Hospitality sector group, and regularly writes for Caterer & Hotelkeeper magazine.
He is also responsible for 'Business Doctor', a question and answer column in The Sunday Times which he has been writing for since its inception in 1997.
