Furthermore, we have also been awarded with the “Trainee Development-Gold” that proves our commitment to ensuring ACCA students have the right skills to add value and drive to the business. Furthermore, we follow the IFRS (International Financials Reporting Standards) for SMEs.

CTC is also partnered with ZOHO finance which is an “integrated suite of financial applications for your business”, allowing our accounting services to give you the ultimate results.

How are we the right match for you?

We understand that SME’s are different from large organizations, they rely on resourcefulness and creativity to grow. They need to have the same achievements as a large organization while having a smaller budget. We are here because we want to give you the same opportunities that bigger companies have and while these companies have an in-house finance controller, you have us.

Our story - From “aha” moment to accounting business

At CTC Accounting, we work with numbers.

On the surface, this may not seem like the most creative of pursuits.

But creativity is what brought us into the world.

Caroline Thevenot, Founder & CEO of CTC Accounting, has worked with companies of all sizes for over 20 years. She has lent her expertise to companies as an accountant, cost controller, finance manager, and CFO.

Over the years, Caroline noticed a gap in the market. With the rise of start-ups in the UAE, there was a clear lack of affordable and reliable financial talent.

This could deeply impact a growing company’s development.

So Caroline put her entrepreneurial mindset in action, and offered her services to a company looking for admin support. She could see that they also needed financial support. She said, “What about hiring me part-time so you can enjoy the services of a Finance Manager without the full cost?”.

They were sold.

This creative solution brought CTC Accounting to life.

And we have been serving small and medium businesses ever since.
