PRAXITY has added two firms from Palestine and the UK to its alliance of independent accountancy practices.
The world's second-largest alliance by fee income announced that UK-based Brand Finance and Palestine-based El Wafa have joined its group.
The entrants add to the recent signings of firms from Germany and Iceland earlier this month.
Brand Finance specialises in brand valuation and management with offices also in Asia, the Middle East, Europe, South America and the US and Canada with clients that included international brand owners, tax authorities, Intellectual Property lawyers and investment banks.
El Wafa is one of Palestine's leading audit, accounting, tax and consulting service providers - clients include those in the service, financial, manufacturing and trading sectors, plus not-for-profit organisations, Praxity said.
Praxity chairman, Rick Anderson, commented: "These latest additions underline our ethos of global collaboration and a commitment to extend our global reach. Firms are keen to join us because they keep their local identity whilst having access to an unrivalled global resource and knowledge pool."
According to the latest Accountancy Age Top 35 Networks & Alliances survey , Praxity operates in 109 countries and has 2,768 partners worldwide.
Erm last time I checked Palestine wasn't a recognised country - get your facts rights!
