Mukesh Khatri


After reading Economics at university, Mukesh served his Articles with a small North London firm of Chartered Accountants where he gained experience in all matters of accounting and tax. Whilst there, he particularly enjoyed the direct interaction with the partners and clients.

As a newly qualified Chartered Accountant, Mukesh’s ambition was to join a large firm and so he went to work for the largest accountancy firm at the time; KPMG. During his time there he gained further knowledge of auditing and, having also had a spell in their tax department, valuable knowledge in tax matters and working with HMRC.

Thereafter, Mukesh went on to work in industry, notably as Head of Corporate in the commercial division of the BBC.

Having experienced both small and large accountancy practices and gained further perspective from working in the industry, Mukesh decided to return to his small firm roots where he had thrived on the close interaction between clients and colleagues.

Mukesh joined Barcant Beardon in late 1990 as Audit Manager and became Partner in 1992. Mukesh takes great professional and personal satisfaction in making a direct impact on the businesses and lives of his clients. Over the years he has assisted Corporate and Not-for-Profit sector clients with mergers, acquisitions and pre and post-sales taxation planning as well as the day-to-day accounting and tax matters. He now heads the firm’s audit assurance and business consultancy division and in recent years has also acquired the Institute of Chartered Accountants Diploma in Charity Accounting.

Outside of work Mukesh’s main passion is his beloved Arsenal and you always know when they’ve won as he comes into the office with a big bag of croissants the next morning!

Mukesh’s other major preoccupation is in endeavouring to keep fit, and to this end, he has recently taken up the Parkrun. He still dreams of running the London Marathon one day.
