Duncan & Toplis became a member of Kreston International in 2011. Kreston is a global network of independent accounting firms and is currently ranked as the 12th largest accounting network in the world. Kreston covers over 100 countries and provides a resource of more than 21,000 professional and support staff.
Kreston is a full member of the Forum of Firms (FOF), an association of international networks of accounting firms that perform audits of financial statements that are or may be used across national borders. It is an internationally recognised “quality badge”, which some bodies, such as the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (ERBD) and the World Bank, require their suppliers to have membership of. It is this admittance and Kreston’s successful transition from an association to a network that led to it winning the award for the Rising Star Network at the International Accounting Bulletin's inaugural industry awards in 2012.
Membership of Kreston enables us to work together with other independent firms across the globe to deliver solutions to a whole range of clients’ requirements, such as international group audits, cross-border taxation, expatriate tax and so on.
Kreston member firms are a credible alternative to the national accountancy firms. Clients benefit from the best of both worlds - a trusted Partner-led service from a local firm complemented by overseas expertise and knowledge as and when required. Communication would be done on your behalf by your usual Duncan & Toplis contact.
For those businesses looking to expand abroad there may be any number of risk areas to consider. Consulting a member firm based locally in the selected country on these areas, in advance, will ensure that any potential risks are identified and dealt with.
Kreston UK is a brand representing firms based in the UK, Ireland, Channel Islands and Isle of Man which are each members of Kreston International. The UK network provides national coverage, a resource of over 2,100 professional and support staff and generates annual fee revenues approaching £140m. As a combined organisation, it would rank as the 10th largest UK firm.
