19 October 2020
Alliott Global Alliance (previously ‘Alliott Group’), one of the world’s largest multidisciplinary alliances of professional services firms, has expanded its presence in the Asia Pacific region by appointing GPS Accounting as its accounting firm member in Bangkok, Thailand.
This appointment increases the alliance’s presence in South East Asia and boosts coverage in the wider Asia Pacific region to 15 countries. In the last year, the alliance has entered new countries or supplemented its presence in Bangladesh, Hong Kong, China, Singapore, Malaysia and now Thailand in the last year.
A highly regarded accounting firm, GPS Accounting is an established brand with a solid footing in the community and extensive professional and business connections across Thailand and South East Asia.
Formed in 2018 after branching away from its affiliate and Alliott Global Alliance’s (soon to be announced) law firm member in Bangkok, GPS Legal, GPS Accounting is experienced in providing expertise to the underserved sector of foreign middle market companies to whom the firm provides outsourcing, tax compliance, payroll and advisory service. GPS Accounting is headed up by Managing Partner Steve Harrop who along with two additional partners and support staff, offer services in the English and Thai languages.
Working mainly for clients in the technology, hospitality, manufacturing, real estate and import and export sectors, GPS Accounting is a fast-growing practice and strives to provide a high professional standard of accounting services in Thailand with a focus on serving foreign interests in the country.
Steve Harrop, Managing Partner comments:
“We are excited to join Alliott Global Alliance at a time of significant growth and momentum. This relationship will greatly expand our global reach and give us access to professionals in other jurisdictions where some of our high-profile clients seek representation. Our affiliation with a top tier global alliance will also help to strengthen and enhance our own brand and our international offering. We are well positioned to offer AGA members a service they will have confidence in if, and when they require assistance.”
Alliott Global Alliance COO Giles Brake said:
“The firm joins us at an exciting time of organic growth in South East Asia and worldwide. As a fast-growing practice in Bangkok, GPS Accounting is well placed to provide Alliott Group Alliance with a recognised accounting presence in the country. Dynamic and proactive, Steve and his team have a clear international orientation and have already participated with us in a high-profile RFP submission with a major global bank. Working hand in hand with subsidiary and local law firm member GPS Legal, Steve and his team will be a great asset to the region and to our alliance.”
