With offices located in the northern Al Seef district of Bahrain, DLS & Associates is an independent Audit firm offering Audit & Assurance, Tax and Advisory services.

Who are DLS & Associates Bahrain?

DLS was established earlier this year as the Audit arm of parent company Empower Business solutions. Empower Business Solutions, founded in March 2013 by Emma Almansoori, offers a range of business consulting services to small and midsize businesses in Bahrain and the GCC region.

Our key contacts at DLS & Associates are Emma Almansoori, Managing Director and Sumit Dhadda, Audit Partner.

Sumit is a qualified Registered Valuer & Insolvency Resolution Professional with a Bachelor of Commerce from the University of Rajasthan. He has extensive experience in Statutory Audits, gained while working with the Big4 audit firms in Bahrain.

Working alongside Emma and Sumit is Harsha Ramnani, a Chartered Accountant with extensive experience in the consultancy, auditing & assurance fields, particularly within the Textile, Real Estate, Automobile Components, Shipping, Health Care, Banking, FMC and Power Sector industries.

Why did DLS & Associates join the network?

Emma spoke to us recently about the reasons behind her firm's decision to join MGI Worldwide with CPAAI:

MGI’s operations align with our objective to be part of an international recognized body to network, share resources and boost credibility. We researched on other associations and networks and MGI Worldwide with CPAAI has the closest alignment with our objectives.”

A brief introduction to Bahrain

Bahrain is an island nation comprised of 33 natural, and 51 artificial islands, centred around the largest of these, Bahrain Island, with approximately 83% of the country’s landmass. Bahrain is located between the Qatar peninsula and Saudi Arabia’s north eastern coast.

Although its economy is heavily dependent on oil and gas, Bahrain has invested heavily over the last years in the banking and tourism sectors. Its banking and financial services sector, particularly Islamic banking, have benefited from the regional boom driven by demand for oil. As the World Bank points out, Bahrain, along with all the other Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries, now faces the unprecedented challenge of coping with the dual shock of the COVID-19 pandemic and a collapse in oil prices.

DLS & Associates joins MGI Worldwide with CPAAI network and association in the MGI Middle East & North Africa region. For more information visit DLS & Associates’ member profile page or their website.

MGI MENA is part of MGI Worldwide with CPAAI, a top 20 ranked global accounting network and association with 10,000 independent auditors, accountants and tax experts in some 460 locations in almost 100 countries around the world.
