Press release by TGS Global

Clark Robbins & Associates has joined the TGS Global network. With three offices in Mauritius, Clark Robbins & Associates is an Accounting, Tax, Audit and Consulting firm serving both local and international businesses. Payroll management, corporate recovery/restructuring and company secretarial services are also provided.

Clients range from Small Medium Enterprises (SMEs) to large international organisations, across a diverse range of sectors. Vinoba Gunnoo FCCA, CEO and Managing Partner, is a Public Practitioner with 29 years of experience. Formerly with Coopers & Lybrand (now PWC) and successively with Arthur Andersen, BDO and Nexia Baker & Arenson, Vinoba is registered with the Financial Reporting Council (FRC) as a Licensed Auditor and is a member of The Mauritius Institute of Professional Accountants (MIPA).He also holds a Practising Certificate from The Chartered Association of Certified Accountants (ACCA), UK of which he is a Fellow Member.

Commenting on this development, Vinoba Gunnoo says: "Mauritius, well known for its economic miracle, has an increasingly significant and well regulated financial services sector, with many of the world's largest banks and insurance companies established here. With the ease of doing business supplemented with political stability, Mauritius positions itself as a leader in the Sub Saharan region in attracting foreign investments We anticipate that Mauritius, as a Gateway to Rising Africa will become an important regional hub and we therefore believe that membership of a dynamic international network is critical for our own development. Joining TGS Global will give us access to a worldwide group of entrepreneurial firms who will enable us to serve our clients better and attract new clients with overseas requirements. "

CEO of TGS Global, Richard Keyes, adds: "We welcome Vinoba and his team to the network. They have unrivalled experience locally and will help us to connect to the wider east African region. "

Sa'ar Group has joined the TGS Global network. Founded in 2000, the firm has four partners and is based in Tel Aviv. Offering a complete range of services including audit, accounting and tax, there is also a rapidly growing consultancy arm which has particular skills in the provision of litigation support and expert opinions. The firm also has an innovative TAX-TV channel on YouTube.

Clients range from small to large enterprises in the service, commerce and export-oriented industrial sectors, with a significant component of cross-border trade. Specialist internal/forensic audit and Sarbanes-Oxley compliance services are provided to Israeli clients in Europe and the USA.

Managing Partner Elisha Sa'ar says: "Our firm has grown to a point where we needed to belong to a professional network with entrepreneurial and pro-active members. Our clients require increasingly sophisticated services to support their overseas activities and we have to be able to provide them with responsive and quality-assured advice. We are confident that by joining TGS Global, we will be able to deliver our clients' needs and accelerate our own ambitious growth plans."

CEO of TGS Global, Richard Keyes, adds: "The addition of Sa'ar Group as our exclusive member firm in Israel is another milestone in the development of the network in the Middle East. They are a truly dynamic team with a refreshing approach, exemplified by their use of social media channels to promote and develop their business. With an impressive track record of international activity, we expect them to make a significant contribution in the coming years."

Cheng & Co has joined the TGS Global network. The firm has thirteen partners and is now well on the way to achieving its goal of becoming Malaysia's largest home-grown firm. Following the merger & acquisition of more than twenty (20) local businesses since 1997, Cheng & Co now has two offices in Kuala Lumpur, eleven in other towns across the country and five overseas offices. More than 300 people are employed.

Cheng & Co provides a one-stop solution to SMEs with services that include audit, accountancy, tax and consultancy; with the introduction of a Goods & Services Tax (GST) in 2015, the firm has set up a specialist service team to help companies transition to the new tax regime.

The firm has additional capability in corporate recovery & insolvency and international advisory services. A joint venture with Taiwan's number one ERP service group aims to bring this expertise to the Malaysian market.

Commenting on this initiative, COO Tom Wong says: "Cheng & Co has an increasingly important international component to its business, not only through its regional offices outside Malaysia but also because the establishment of the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) in 2015 is a major milestone in regional economic integration, offering opportunities in the form of a huge market of US$2.6 trillion and over 622 million people. We recognised the need to become part of a larger group of progressive independent firms around the world and membership of TGS Global meets that objective."

CEO of TGS Global, Richard Keyes, adds: "Cheng & Co is an important regional firm and their membership greatly strengthens our presence in the Asia-Pacific region. I believe that their membership will benefit not only our regional members, but any of our worldwide firms requiring high quality services in Malaysia".
