Our Staff

The Company is indebted to Sivamalar Gunaseelan who has been working for the company since 1995. Her knowledge in taxation and participation in tax-filing have created a path to our company’s growth. Mrs. Gunaseelan’s criticism and constructive suggestions brought the ability to study, evaluate, hire and manage employees. From 1993-1998 Attorney Mr. Velauthan Tharumalingam has helped to create company contracts, agreements, tax appeals and company incorporation documents. The documents are in use now.
Our company will not forget the first employees Gowshi Sivasubramaniam and Vimala Anthonipillay who worked from 1992-1994.

The motto “We take the fear out of accounting, auditing and taxation” has spread among Torontonians by our employees Calistella Mariadas since 1999, Ravichandran Nadarajah since 2002, Yamini Ananthakumar since 2005, and Rangika Karunathilage since 2007.

Some of the members are not here today to see the successful outcome of our company.
