Our Story

Our story goes back to 2006 where both our Founders met and were training to become ICAEW Chartered Accountants at a small 3 partner firm in Birmingham.

After completing their ACA training contracts, they both spent the next decade in careers that spanned BDO, KPMG and other corporates before Omar settled with his family in Pakistan and Ahmad started his own accountancy firm supporting small businesses in Birmingham.

In 2020 at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic, with many firms putting their staff on furlough, Ahmad was struggling to recruit staff for his rapidly growing accountancy firm and urgently needed support if he wanted to keep his existing clients happy and continue growing.

Faced with this dilemma, Ahmad reached out to Omar to help him hire a team member directly in Pakistan. At the same time due to the backlog of work rapidly piling up, Ahmad decided to outsource some of their work to an outsourcing company overseas to get some short-term relief.

Very quickly Ahmad realised that the outsourcing company wasn’t providing the quick relief he needed and instead due to the quality of work, Ahmad and his UK team were spending more time checking and rechecking the work that trust was quickly lost.

After pulling the plug on the outsourcing company, Ahmad with the help of Omar beefed up the offshore team in Pakistan which was proving successful as the rigorous standards and quality instilled within Ahmad’s team in the UK were replicated across to the team in Pakistan.

Today Propact not only continues to support our Founder’s accountancy business with a dedicated offshore team, but it also supports many other accountancy and bookkeeping firms by ensuring the same high quality and rigorous standards expected by our Founder for his own firm are equally maintained for our clients.
