About Us

Our history features hard work and commitment of three generations of the Comas family. Mr José Enrique Comas-Amaro founded the firm in 1962, in the city of Montevideo, and focused on providing commercial advisory services to businessmen.

Years later, his son, Mr José Enrique Comas-Aldave, took up as head of the firm, expanded services, and became an expert in investment development in Uruguay, leaving his mark of effort, humility and commitment. At present, his daughters, Maria Marta and Alejandra Comas-Passanante, both CPAs, manage Estudio Comas, with a spirit of enthusiastic and highly responsible professionalism.

Our team of professionals is led by CPAs with expertise in administration, accounting, foreign trade, human resources, taxing and corporations, i.e. experienced and dynamic managers who ensure comprehensive and tailor-made solutions.
