How may we help you?

We are always ready to take your

Audit Firm since 1979

Hello and welcome to my site on the web. My name is Munem, Group Managing Partner of ARCA.

Thousands of companies vouch for the quality of service they enjoyed from our firm which we pride ourselves in having presented over the past forty years or more in the middle-east.

To show examples of our clientele, we have worked with Wal-Mart (the largest trading company in the world), Linde (a huge multinational company), Control Risks, Hill International, General Construction Company, Gulf Contractors Company, ABB Lumus, Telcordia Inc., Techwise, and Salem Jewellery to name but a few of the largest corporations in the world to whom we pride ourselves of presenting.

Despite serving large corporations, we respect and serve all company sizes. We also believe in the single proprietor as well as the smaller local companies to whom we offer similar personal attention.

As far back as 1980, we were  keeping  our own company’s and clients’ accounts and financial statements we audited manually, which needed huge efforts and space especially that space was very expensive. We then learned about computerized systems and accounting packages. However, we were dumbfounded with all the choices and had to spend time, money, trial and error in choosing the most suitable system to custom-make or purchase.

We finally reigned successful in  custom-making and adopting some software and hardware that are best fit for the job so to do what we are best at. When  we  started using those systems and packages, we were able to not only produce far more and better for our clients, but to save substantial time from automation (especially in retrieving information), that we achieved significant savings in time and money (especially from reduced space needed).

This also was a plus to our personal lives because we started to have much more time for our selves and families.

Having had reaped the huge benefits of computerized systems (especially for accounting and auditing), we became so passionate about them and the positive effects they had on us, our lives, and business.

So we gathered the best team I can possibly find to spread their advantages to as many communities and companies as possible, many of whom adopted them.

I remember the first saga of problems we encountered in fully computerising the Four Catering Services Company in Abu Dhabi in 1984 from 100% manual (including all their stores, accounts, and HR). The man who resisted introduction of a computer and hated to hear of it became most passionate about it and I clearly remember him saying to me after three months of full installation “What did we do without the computer before? “.

As a result of our continuing integrity, passion, and diligence in using and providing these systems, in 1984 we were invited to become members of an international network of firms of Chartered Accountants named Dearden Farrow, which we joined. Dearden Farrow changed its name to Summit International. Summit International is now called Baker Tilly International. As of 2011, it is located in over 113 countries and is staffed by over 26,000 members in over 570 offices.

Due to popular demand, we have established a division in entity setups (and offshore registration) to help businesses set up including with what kind of status, how owned, and how structured. We then typically help them set up their accounting systems, and present financial consultancy in the field that they require. Even in some cases we provide secretarial services and forensic accounting until they are completely and fully established. Normally, they then would appoint our firm as their auditors on a near permanent basis.

Whatever your needs are, especially in setting up inside any of the Emirates or at a free zone, in setting up an accounting system and/or auditing of your accounts, in advise on financial matters such as feasibility studies, liquidation, or drafting of financial agreements, we are here to serve you seeking your interest first and foremost.

We govern all our services under ethical, legal, international and statutory regulations and standards, especially in the auditing of accounts. We are bound not only by our own ethics, but also b our membership under the most honourable and oldest institute in the world being ICAEW, and our former association with Baker Tilly International.

We are different from other companies in the same fields due to our exceptional efficiency, timeliness, and ethical practise. When we serve you, you will find that we have helped you have a long lasting, profitable, hassle free business.

If you have any questions you may fill the inquiry form, or may call our team in Dubai or Abu-Dhabi, or you may even call me personally on my mobile. We will answer your inquiry in a timely manner.

You qualify for our services if you run a business from any part of the world and seek long-term benefits and guidance in accounting, auditing, financial consultancy, or entity-setup throughout the duration of your business in the UAE. You naturally need to be willing to provide a reasonable compensation, which you will find through filling our quotation request form; we will offer you a fair and personalized quotation.

I personally would like to welcome you wholeheartedly to enjoy the benefits our many clients have enjoyed due to our many years of experience, timeliness, exceptional efficiency, and superior ethical standards.


Ahlan wasahlan,
Yours,
Munem
