Europe, Middle East & Africa

Powering up Europe’s single market with vibrant firms in the Middle East and Africa makes sense for all firms. While the markets in this region vary greatly, its purpose is to provide excellent business services from the Cape of Good Hope to Norway. This region provides specific programming in services for real estate, construction and financial services, alongside expert knowledge on issues such as IFRS and VAT. Specialized committees keep the region dynamic and ensure members have expert knowledge.

Local experience can be mission-critical when it comes to business ventures. Count on this region to deliver specialist forensic accounting services in the UAE, advisory and risk management in Kuwait and tax advisory services in Nigeria, as well as a full suite of services throughout Europe.
