Firm Profile

Chandabhoy & Jassoobhoy ('C&J'), is amongst the earliest firms of accountants and was established in India in 1908 at a time when the profession of auditing was in its infancy in the country. C&J has been in continuous existence since then. Among C&J’s earliest clients were textile mills and large charitable institutions some of which even today continue to be clients of C&J. Since then audit has become compulsory for corporate entities, taxation is all pervasive, consultancy a growing phenomenon and technology an essential tool and aid to management. In all these areas, C&J, which had quiet beginnings, has kept pace with the present trends of a modern professional practice. Today, the practice has been developed to a stage where C&J is a one stop shop – a destination that serves all the business and commercial requirements of a client.
