“We set up our own business from scratch in 2005, so we know what it is like out there, and our advice is based on practical experience as well as professional knowledge. I’m responsible for the technical, professional and compliance side of our work and head up our support team in this respect.
My role is to make sure that we act as a secure safety net for you and your business, helping you to reduce the burden of red tape and manage the compliance of your tax, accounting and business affairs.
I work with many clients on their business plans and financial forecasting needs, particularly with raising funds in mind. We are owner-managers ourselves so our clients are precious to us. Consequently they are the focus of everything that we do. We are a very modern practice but we see nothing wrong with so-called ‘old fashioned’ ideas of customer service.”
Outside of Work – Kaaeed enjoys walking, swimming and photography. He is always up for a challenge and has walked and cycled the Coast to Coast route in England.
Azam is a Cambridge University graduate. He trained to be a Chartered Accountant with Deloittes where he spent 15 years and was a Director in their Midlands Practice.
Keeping clients at the very heart of our business is what it is all about. We originally set up our business because we were frustrated at the gap that existed between accountants and their clients. We enjoy working with, and alongside, our clients and see very little fun in a reactive, distant role. I’m responsible for the advisory side of the firm, concentrating on the issues that hold back clients’ businesses and the things that cost them time and money.
The success of our own business depends entirely on us helping our clients to become successful themselves so we work with them to create and carry out the actions that will lead to that success. I’ve seen, and been involved in, hundreds of business situations and I bring that outside perspective and knowledge to the client’s business.
Outside of Work - Azam is learning to play the guitar, he sits on the Board of Leicester University, Curve Theatre and is a supporter of the arts.
Zahir is a graduate of Kingston University and worked for Cap Gemini Ernst & Young in their IT consultancy business.
“It was a natural addition to what we offer our clients, and something that we were always being asked for our help and recommendations on. The key to successful IT is knowing what our clients are trying to achieve, where they currently are and how to get them there within the constraints every business has. Having spent over 10 years in IT Blue Chip Consultancy working with a huge range of companies both large and small, we have brought this expertise and experience to our clients.
Over the last few years we have been heavily involved in working with our clients to develop Social Media strategies, along with the core activities of e-commerce, stock management systems and remote workers to name a few.”
