About Syed Arif Limited, Ilford

We have a varied client base: doctors, civil engineers, IT professionals, food manufacturers, retail stores, cash and carry businesses, estate agents, building contractors and property investors, restaurants and takeaways. No client is too small for us.

We develop a close relationship with each and every client, helping them to keep their tax liability to a minimum, maximize their profit, increase the value of their business, and invest their wealth wisely. In doing so, we always provide the right advice at the right time, telling them whenever we identify a risk or threat to the business or an opportunity to maximize a gain.

The firm was formed by Syed Arif after many years of working as an accountant in a prestigious Chartered Accountancy firm and also in a number of sectors, including commerce and industry.
