Our Journey

Welcome to Our Journey at KGL!

Take a stroll through the story of our firm, KGL, where we’re all about taxes, legal matters, and business support in Suriname.

Our journey kicked off when we merged with another firm, creating KGL on July 18, 2023. It’s been quite the ride since then!

We’re all about teamwork here at KGL. Each member of our crew brings something special to the table, and that’s what makes us tick.

Ever wonder where the name “KGL” comes from? It’s a nod to our roots at Kenswil & Co, where it all began. The ‘G’ and ‘L’ stand for our partners, Gobardhan and Leeflang, who’ve been with us every step of the way.

As we keep moving forward, we’re all about staying true to our values: innovation, honesty, and making sure our clients are happy.
