For more than 16 years, we’ve been helping individuals and businesses reach their aspirations. Since then, we’ve added more experts to our team and more services to our repertoire.
Egbert 'Eggie' Pereira
Financials. Egbert’s right on top of them, whether our clients’ or the firm’s. And he’s a master motivator. He loves encouraging the team to reach their full potential. Eggie’s holding the reins at EPA Group. But he’s no control freak. In 18 years building the EPA Group, Egbert’s made sure he doesn’t need to dot every “i” and cross every “t” to keep the business moving. There are more important things to do, like looking after clients. “I love meeting people, and helping them achieve their goals. The challenge to complete each engagement keeps me inspired, as does the new technology I’m continually learning about.” Away from the technology, Egbert likes pottering around the house and going on long bike rides.
People stick with Peter. And he sticks with them. He’s been working with the same portfolio of clients since he joined the EPA Group as a junior accountant in mid-2008. And guess what? Now he’s got a junior accountant reporting to him. Progress huh. Peter loves guiding clients to their financial goals and objectives. “I love being able to advise on both tax and financial planning issues. I help clients live well in the present and plan for the future.” if you’re up for a game, Peter’s into badminton, tennis, golf, snooker, computer games and board games. Oh, and reading Manga comics and hanging out with friends’, seeing as his family are in Malaysia.
Ankita helps with compliance and tax obligations for a variety of clients – Individuals, companies, and trusts. “I love coming to a workplace that genuinely wants both you and the clients to prosper and succeed. I live and breathe accounting, it’s something that has always made sense to me. It’s so much more than just a numbers game.“ When Ankita is not at work, she enjoys spending her time watching TV shows, hanging out with friends and family, and going on long walks.
Ashley is a quick leaner, after working at EPA Group for one year, she can now independently prepare financials and tax returns for trust, company, and individuals. “I love working at EPA group and am learning a lot here. Everybody is so friendly and patient with me. I also feel a strong sense of achievement in assisting our clients to solve their problems. It is a challenging job, but I really enjoy it.” Outside work, Ashley spent most of her time staying with family and catching up with her friends.
Genevieve prepares tax returns and financials for clients and helps them with their enquiries. “I love working here, everyone is really friendly and helpful. I’m learning a lot. I love helping clients, I find it very rewarding”. Outside the office, Genevieve enjoys the occasional game of badminton and taking dance lessons (“I still have two left feet though”). She likes reading and watching TV shows, baking and sewing.
