Baker Tilly International has added Huang Yan Teo & Co in Malaysia to its network.

Bringing the network’s presence in the region to a total of nine offices, the addition saw the rebranding of the added firm to Baker Tilly HYT.

Baker Tilly HYT was established in 1976 and offers a range of services, specialising in small and medium-sized businesses.

The addition follows the September merger between Baker Tilly Malaysia and Chang & Associates, a local firm subsequently rebranded to Baker Tilly CKF.

Baker Tilly international chief executive officer Geoff Barnes described the network’s continued expansion in Malaysia as an important factor for competition.

"With the admission of such a reputable firm, Baker Tilly in Malaysia remains one of the best alternatives to the Big Four firms and strengthens our position as the sixth largest accounting firm in Malaysia," he said.
