Common Goals, Special Service
We may work for independent firms but we all subscribe to the same charter. This charter stresses the honesty, integrity and absolute professionalism we bring to accounting and business ethics. These aren't just words to us.
Firms are vetted very carefully before we invite them to join. We want to be sure that each member benefits from the network as well as adding to it and sharing our principles.
You will find that the network is consequently rich in people ready to give forward-thinking advice, based on a solid foundation of best practice. We have harmonised our standards and systems in areas such as IT and training wherever possible.
We monitor standards regularly, including annual quality control returns, and maintain them scrupulously. In addition, we hold conferences every four months where we exchange knowledge and ideas, improving our ways of working together.
Although charges will obviously differ according to the complexity of the work, one common standard applies: we all share the same policy of transparent pricing and are committed to making our charges competitive. For cross-border work, you can choose whether you wish subsidiaries to pay locally or settle on one central fee. The cost of any assignment will be itemised and agreed in advance so you know exactly what you're paying for - top level advice, great value.
