Global network RSM International has added three correspondent firms in Benin, Cameroon and Burkina Faso.

The new firms, Cameroun Audit Conseil (Cameroon, with an office in Congo), Canal Audit SARL (Benin), and Seccapi Sarl (Burkina Faso) have increased RSM’s clout in Africa by 25%, according to the network.

RSM’s latest additions in Africa follow last year’s admittance of SIAO Partners, the fifth accounting firm in Nigeria by revenue, and the network currently counts fifteen member and correspondent firms across the continent.

RSM International chief executive officer Jean Stephens described the network’s three new members as "leading African firms" and added: "Business in Africa is developing rapidly and as demand for professional services in the region continues to grow it is imperative that we ensure RSM is represented by very high quality local businesses."
