"Nafees is an accountant that looks at business with a holistic perspective. Over 7 years ago, I began working with Nafees on personal taxes. He has since provided a great deal of service to me by assisting me with analysis and feedback with the areas of business I run. Nafees has earned Certified Management Accountant (CMA) to add to his many other designations such as CPA, CGA & ACFP. However, Nafees already looked at accounting with the organic approach of including strategy and business planning.
