agp was co-founded by Faroque Ahmed and Forhad Ahmed in 2015. After many years of working with an established accountancy client base, the time was right to come together and create agp. By merging, both could provide better client services with renewed vigour and a greater synergy.
We are an experienced and skilled provider of accounting, tax and business advice services. We help businesses improve their performance and individuals plan for the future. Our dedicated team of specialists are knowledgeable and well-informed, with an approachable style, offering practical advice.

Our Team Members
Faroque Ahmed, BA FCA
Director and Managing Partner
Faroque co-founded agp in 2015 with Forhad Ahmed. He is responsible for overseeing the whole practice, though he is predominately based in the Chiswick office.
His accountancy experience has been varied working for small firms as well as within top 10 international firms, where he was a manager for a number of blue chip multi-national companies. He has experience in hotels, construction industries, car dealerships, travel companies, yacht companies, mobile homes and individual business owners.
His specialisms are audit, accounting and business advice. His clients include FCA regulated clients, pension schemes, charities and not-for-profit organisations and a mixed portfolio of owner managed businesses including contractors.
As the designated audit partner, he oversees the firm’s audit clients, which means he get to be involved with many of the larger sized businesses.
As a client manager to many of the smaller sized clients, he oversees their activities too. This gives him a much broader view of the firm’s activities than would normally be expected of a managing partner in a busy accountancy practice.
