Asmat & Co was established in 2007 in Slough, Berkshire by Mr Asmat Shaikh.
The history of our firm goes back to 1972 when Asmat Shaikh, aged just 26 qualified as CIMA accountant through Unilever finance training scheme and was awarded Associate Membership (ACMA) in 1974. After gaining vast wealth of knowledge and experience of accountancy with various multinational corporations, Asmat Accountants was founded in 2007. Since 2007 and up to now the practice has witnessed phenomenal growth both in numbers and the variety of businesses being handled. We list our achievements due to our commitment to customers, integrity and loyalty in providing our services. Asmat Accountants not only provide statuary accountancy service but has successfully defended many clients in Tax, VAT and other HMRC investigations.
We train our staff to professional standards and most of our internees now serve as Team Leaders and have also achieved their professional qualifications (ACCA; AAT; IFA) through our firm. We are also approved ACCA Employers.
We focus on strengthening our client relationships and offering more comprehensive support for business owners by reinforcing our position as true business advisors – not just accountants.
