Born in Georgia and raised in Azerbaijan, Farid considers himself a citizen of the world. His learning trajectory has been a mix of formal education and intense self-learning, which equipped him with the knowledge and skills to provide the full range of accounting, auditing, and taxation services. Coupled with ambition and sincere desire to help small businesses to succeed, Farid’s professional expertise resulted in the creation of the firm we proudly call Q Accountants.

If you wouldn’t be an accountant who would you be?
I love listening to others and as my friends phrase it, I am “too” patient. A psychologist?

What are your hobbies?
I am passionate about music and truly believe that it is one of the greatest inventions of the humanity. I play the piano and the guitar, and I am a member of Singology choir.

What are you passionate about?
Human brain. We’ve entered the 21st century, and there are still so much to learn about it!

Is there a secret talent nobody knows about you?
Yes, there is.

What is your biggest guilty pleasure?
Ask me anything about UK taxation and … ice-cream!

What is your favourite vacation spot?
Japan, the whole of it. The best trip ever.
