New deal with IAPA provides increased international visibility for UK200Group accountancy members
The UK200Group and IAPA have recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) which confirms that both organisations will work more closely to add value to their respective membership service offerings.
From 1 April 2018, all eligible UK200Group accountancy firms will be listed individually on IAPA’s website in addition to having continued access to IAPA’s membership services, including its resources, events and conferences. This new arrangement will enable UK200Group accountancy firms to raise their visibility amongst IAPA’s 173 member firms located in 63 countries around the world. It will also enhance their ability to help clients look beyond UK borders for business.
Declan Swan, CEO of the UK200Group said;
“We have enjoyed a positive relationship with IAPA for many years. This MOU however, strengthens the links between both our organisations and will further help our members and their clients to take advantage of international business opportunities which will be very important in a post-Brexit world.”
Martin Clapson, IAPA’s Global Chairman said;
“IAPA is delighted to welcome the UK200Group into the association as a full UK National Accounting Group (NAG).
IAPA has always had a close connection with the UK200Group, but this new agreement allows a solid platform for the two associations to openly share regional, national and international resources, expertise, service offerings, events and networking opportunities, to the greater benefit of all members and their clients.
The UK200Group and IAPA share a common ethos and culture that is dynamic, aspiring and client focused. We look forward to our members being able to take advantage of the new business opportunities this partnership will lead to. “
David Stevens, Chair of the UK200Group’s International Panel said;
“This agreement reflects an enhanced commitment from both organisations to encourage their respective members to reach out and connect with one another as a means of developing their international business connections. It brings considerable benefits to UK200Group accountancy members, by strengthening their opportunity to help their clients with overseas business interests, as well as assisting clients of IAPA members in the UK.”
