What motivated AKSAA to join MGI Worldwide?
Qatar has several very large energy sector companies which, in order to operate, need their ICV (Inter-Country Value) certification. AKSAA is one of few firms certified to provide this. The firm is tax-led and wants to break into the Big10 market. To compete for certain
international jobs, the firm needs the international accreditation of the Forum of Firms, which was a big incentive for them to join the MGI Worldwide network.
Partner Naresh Dasari explains:
“We choose to join MGI because of its worldwide presence and its membership of IFAC Forum of Firms. This will support us to get our firm registered with Qatar Financial Centre (QFC). Joining MGI Worldwide fulfils our long years waiting of approval from QFC.”
