Barbara & Co. was founded in 1966 by the late Victor Barbara in the Beirut Central District. Barbara & Co. is one of the well-known local auditing firms in Lebanon, mainly specializing in the area of tax consulting and serving major corporations. Other than the two partners, the firm has seven managers on its staff, four of whom specialize in tax consulting. It is one of only 20 international and local firms accredited by the Lebanese Government to carry public audit.
In 1970, as the firm’s founding partner’s reputation grew, he was called upon to be the founder of both the “Syndicate of Certified Accountants in Lebanon” and later of “Federation Internationale des Experts Comptables Francophones”.
In 1979, Jean Barbara graduated with a BBA from the American University of Beirut (MBA in 1983) and joined the firm, followed by Wadih Barbara (BBA from the University of Arizona and MIM from Thunderbird) in 1995.
In 1994, when the Lebanese Government set up the first national “Association of Certified Public Accountants”, six renowned auditors in Lebanon were appointed by the Government to be the founders of the said Association. Jean Barbara was chosen to be one of them.
Established in 1966, Barbara & Co offers Financial Assurance, Tax Consultancy, Financial Advisory, and Business Valuation Services. It is one of few Lebanese firms accredited by the government to carry public audit.
