HLB International has added Georgian audit and tax firm Financial Management Group to its network.

The Tblisi based firm, established in 2009, has 63 staff providing services for the manufacturing, trading, financial services and not-for-profit sectors.

The network is already present in the Caucasus with HLB Azerbaijan, and HLB International chief executive Rob Tautges said they were "delighted" that Financial Management Group would "strengthen" their regional offering.

Financial Management Group added that by joining HLB International it would "be able to better serve clients internationally while maintaining international quality standards".
