Rabin & Associates
Chartered Accountants

About

Passion. Experience. Diligence.

History

Founded by Rabindra Singh Veriah in 1987, Rabin & Associates began as a meagre audit upstart among a sea of established “Big Eight” accounting firms in Kuala Lumpur.

Our first two decades were marked by slow and steady growth of our client base as we set out to establish ourselves as the go-to firm for our clients’ most complex financial problems. Recognising the value of providing full-service advice to clients, from day one we sought to develop a range of complementary practices, like tax and corporate advisory.

Client needs led us to expand our offices in 1995, and the volume of work we were handling fueled exponential growth in the number of staff at the firm in the early 2000s. That growth included a significant expansion of the practices we offered to clients via our affiliate, Real Time Group, including accounting & finance, company formation, corporate secretarial, expatriate advisory, license applications and HR & payroll.

In the nearly three decades since, we’ve built on that platform to provide advice to clients locally and around the world on their most important matters. Our core values reflect the ideals of our history, and we remain committed to providing excellent professionalism and unrivalled client service in all our work.

Fariz Zain Zahedi

Fariz was educated in Malaysia and Australia and read engineering & finance at the University of Adelaide, South Australia. Prior to joining Real Time Group as Director of Corporate Services and as a Consultant to Rabin & Associates, Fariz was with PwC Malaysia in deals advisory where he oversaw numerous transactions across various industries including retail, food & beverage, healthcare, oil & gas, telecommunications and media.

For Fariz, the art of conversation comprises more than just a friendly chat. He’s found that stepping back can prove equally helpful in learning about people – a skill that proves invaluable in his role for ensuring continuous improvement in quality of service, operational and financial effectiveness, as well as employee retention.

Fariz is constantly inspired by travel. The opportunity to learn how people from other cultures live, eat, relate to one other, and express themselves fuels his imagination unimaginably.
