Legacy of the Firm

1979

MABS & J Partners (formerly known as Saha Mazumder & Co) is a firm of Chartered Accountants established through the merger of two separate firms, M/S B. B. Saha & Co, Chartered Accountants (est. 1979) and M/S Mazumder & Co, Chartered Accountants (est. 1981). The experience of the firm is thus reckoned as around 42 years under the license of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Bangladesh (ICAB).

Effective from 20 June 2013 the firm has been renamed as MABS & J Partners, Chartered Accountants. This name change has been done only to facilitate future expansion and inclusion of new partners in days ahead; hence the new name will represent the former firm, Saha Mazumder & Co. Chartered Accountants, in all respects and will carry experiences of more than four decades.
