    Our History

    Edirisinghe & Co., the “flag ship” Firm of Chartered Accountants, was established on the 1st of August 1985 by the Founder Partner; A.T.P. Edirisinghe with three employees. Having worked for over 19 years in the Private Sector both in Sri Lanka and Overseas, Mr. Edirisinghe went into professional practice at the age of 40 years. At that time, his last position was that of Director of the Parent Company of John Keells Group, holding in addition many Directorates in the Subsidiary Companies. He is a Fellow Member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Sri Lanka, a Fellow Member of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants, England, and holds a Diploma in Commercial Arbitration.

    Our founder Partner is now retired but continues to give us his guidance & advice on a daily basis.

    The Firm was previously a member of HLB International and is currently a member of Baker Tilly International.

    With the diverse exposure, the Firm separated its services into three arms;

    1. Baker Tilly Edirisinghe & Co., for Audit, Tax & related matters
    2. PE Management Consultants (Pvt.) Ltd., for Management Consultancy work
    3. Businessmate (Pvt.) Ltd., for Company/Corporate Secretarial Work (Clients interested in these services could be put in contact with Businessmate (Pvt.) Ltd – now an independent entity).

    From the commencement all work was done with the use of computers; a new concept not followed by most practicing Firms in Sri Lanka in 1985. Today, after almost fourteen years, the Firm consists of five Partners and two Managers who are Chartered Accountants, supported by a Staff of thirty-five. The services continue to be totally computer based.

    Baker Tilly Edirisinghe & Co., and its Associate Companies are now well known in Sri Lanka for its high level professional services covering all financial and management activities under “one roof”. Thus the combine posses professionalism, commitment, dedication, recognition and integrity in service.

    Partners, are all Members of the Institute of Chartered Accountants, counting many years of professional experience, in Sri Lanka and some of them abroad.

    The annual growth has been over 20% in terms of turnover and volume.

    Our Fees in all instances are time based and under no circumstances do we charge on value/savings to clients. We also strictly comply with the code of conduct of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Sri Lanka.
