Our Guiding Light

Late CA Mahendrabhai A. Shah (1927 - 2019), Founder Partner

Late CA Mahendrabhai A. Shah (1927 - 2019) was the founder partner of our firm. After qualifying as a Chartered Accountant in 1952, he laid the roots of this firm in that very year in the town of Anand in the erstwhile Kheda district of Gujarat (now Anand district). M. A. Shah & Co. is credited as being the first Chartered Accountancy firm of the erstwhile Kheda district (now Anand, Kheda and Mahisagar districts) and its founder, CA M. A. Shah was the first Chartered Accountant of that region.

The firm grew its wings as CA M. A. Shah re-established the firm in the city of Mumbai in 1957 and has been growing ever since.

CA M. A. Shah was a man of discipline and perseverance. He laid down the foundational practices and ethical policies which resonate in every professional attached with the firm, whether in the present or in the past. In a career spanning 67 years, CA M. A. Shah had acclaimed proficiency in the areas of accountancy, taxation, auditing, business consultancy, and services to charitable and non-profit institutions. Under his leadership, the firm has grown exponentially, and he has laid down an undying legacy for all of us to live up to.

CA M. A. Shah is also recognised as the founder chairman of the Anand Branch of WIRC of ICAI.

Late CA Bhupendrabhai G. Doshi (1937 - 1994) is credited as being the first employee of M. A. Shah & Co. Having joined the firm as an employee in 1954, he dedicated his career to developing and strengthening the foundation of M. A. Shah & Co.'s Gujarat operations. He held a Law degree and under the guidance of Late CA M. A. Shah, he qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 1982 and joined the firm as a partner.

In his 40 years of working with M. A. Shah & Co., Late CA B. G.
