Our people

People are our most valuable asset. We’re in the business of connecting them with you.

Although we’re technology providers as well as outsourcers, we never lose sight of the fact that it’s people that drive businesses forwards. Technology just helps them do it.

dot is made up of our experienced management team and extensive network of dotPros. These are the trusted, tech-savvy accountants who become a highly trained and committed extension of your in-house team.

The dot story

dot is the brainchild of our founders Arun Ravindranathan and Kehul Patel, who have worked in accountancy outsourcing for over 20 years. In their previous roles, Arun and Kehul grew their firm from a humble, tight-knit team of four employees to a major, award-winning outsourcing firm. They’ve worked with 18 of the Top 100 and three of the Top 20 UK accountancy practices.

In 2020, Arun and Kehul identified a Fintech-shaped gap in the accountancy outsourcing market. Namely, tech-driven outsourcers who could fill a resource need while optimising their clients’ accounting operation at the same time.

In effect, they joined the dots. And formed dot.
