Hasib Howlader


Hasib is a Chartered Accountant and a Chartered Tax Adviser with over 15 years’ experience. He formerly worked at both UBS (as a corporate bond originator) and PricewaterhouseCoopers (in the Tax department) before taking control of Howlader & Co, where he has overseen exceptional growth over a sustained period over several years.

He specialises in tax advice but the breadth of his specialisms, as well as his business experience, makes him extremely valuable across a variety of financial matters.

He is fully proficient in statutory accounting, financial reporting and bookkeeping and is familiar with many of the legal issues relevant to small and medium-sized businesses.

Hasib also helps a large number of clients with tax saving, business planning, consulting, forensic accounting and fraud detection – and has suggested a range of sensible controls to combat malpractice.

He has a Masters Degree in Chemical Engineering, holds a season ticket at Tottenham Hotspur and is fluent in English, Spanish and Bengali.

He specialises in complex personal tax returns, non-residence landlord tax returns, commercial property and small-to-medium-size companies.

Sohan is a keen badminton player (and has the skills to match!). He also enjoys travelling.

Chris Kelly

Chris joined Howlader & Co as a trainee in July 2012 and is currently working towards becoming a Chartered Accountant (ACA) with the ICAEW. He graduated with a degree in Physics from Bristol University.

Although he has worked with all manner of clients, a key part of his role at Howlader is tax planning and advisory work for the growing contractor sector in the UK, taking a holistic approach from the basics all the way through to exit strategies. He also plays an important role in keeping our team updated about the frequent changes in the UK tax code.

As well as being a fan of cricket, rugby and Formula 1 – primarily as a spectator – Chris also sings classical music with Barts Choir.

Claudia Cristian

Before joining Howlader & Co as a trainee in December 2014, Claudia graduated from Middlesex University with a first class BA Honours degree in Accounting and Finance. She is currently working towards becoming a Chartered Accountant (ACA) with the ICAEW.

In the office, Claudia has gained a reputation for being a specialist on the various rules regarding the treatment of EU sales for UK VAT purposes. She is also well-versed in the process of restoring a company.

In her spare time, she enjoys playing basketball, hitting the slopes for a spot of skiing, or, if she’s feeling a little less energetic, watching a movie at the cinema.

Simon Whitehead

Simon joined Howlader & Co as a trainee in May 2015 and is currently working towards becoming a Chartered Accountant (ACA) with the ICAEW. He is a graduate of the University of Bath where he studied Economics.

One aspect of his role at Howlader & Co is assisting clients with applications for the Enterprise and Seed Enterprise Investment Schemes, starting with acquiring Advance Assurance from HMRC through to distributing certificates to investors.

If Simon has any spare time between work and studying, he can occasionally be spotted out for a run around Battersea or on the golf course searching for yet another lost ball!
