About Anil Mohanlal- Tax Strategy
Experience & Specialism’s: Anil is the founding director of Kumar Strategic Consultants Ltd Ltd having originally set it up as a sole practice in 1985. He therefore has substantial experience (almost 30 years) in working closely with small and medium sized enterprises and is normally the first point of contact for new clients. He has worked with business owners ranging from one man start ups (and helped to grow their business to generate annual turnover of multi million pounds) to much larger companies requiring a multitude of different services. He specialises in working closely with owners of small and medium sized enterprises in various industries helping them to develop strategic plans and improve their growth and profits. He is therefore particularly aware of problems faced by growing businesses in difficult economic environments.
He acts as a non executive director for many businesses helping them to make every day business decisions and reach their goals.
Prior to setting up Kumar Strategic Consultants Ltd (with one client) in 1985, Anil trained with a eleven partner west end firm and qualified as a chartered accountant in 1983.
Outside Work: Anil is keen to get involved in local and national affairs and served almost 20 years working for The Princes Trust helping young entrepreneurs start their own business. His work was recognised when he was invited to Buckingham Palace meeting the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall.
In 2011 he was chosen to accompany a business delegation organised by UKTI to India with a view to increase trade between the two countries. This was timed to coincide with a visit by Lord Green the UK Trade Minister and recognised Anil’s extensive business experience in both countries.
More recently he personally met the Chief Minister of the state of Gujarat in India – Mr Narendra Modi to discuss plans for real estate and tourist development in the city of Ahmedabad.
He likes to socialize with both clients (who have over the years become friends) and also non clients. Anil would argue his main expertise was as a goalie in indoor 5 a side football but now admits age has caught up with him. Nowadays he is not seen with a ball in his hands but a glass of wine…large one.
