Bala Mahendran

Our Group of companies have been dealing with LBA for almost 28 years starting with Lindsay Brown, and now with Kirti Singh. We always found LBA to be very professional, in their approach and advice in accounting and tax matters. Kirti is very proactive when it comes to tax matters and advises us well in time about tax planning and our tax obligations. She has also assisted us outside the accounting area by competently preparing successfull comprehensive Government Grant applications for State and Federal Goverenment Grants for Manufacturing Expansion programs. In view of the excellent professional service they offer in Accounting, Secretarial and Tax matters, I have recommended LBA services to many of my family, friends businesses and professional associates.
