Firm description

We at Abousleiman & Co.have offered our professional expertise and services to a continuously growing number of clients for over 40 years now. Through our commitment to high moral standards and ethical values we have been successful in establishing strong ties with our clients, while our technical expertise has continuously allowed us to satisfy our client’s growing needs through hands on consultations and recommendations to optimize managing their businesses.

Our Firm’s experience lies in both the public and private sectors where we have engaged in audits as well as special assignments to develop, and in other cases to assess, internal controls adopted by those organizations.

Currently, our three major focus areas of expertise lie in:

(1) assurance services, whereby we carry out audits in accordance with International Standards on Auditing and verify compliance of financial statements with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS),
(2) enterprise risk management, which allows us to understand the administered control measures within an organization with a view to optimizing them and addressing their evident weaknesses, if any, and
(3) taxation, whereby we propose effective tax structures for clients as well as handling tax claims and objections with local tax authorities.
