Wilkins Kennedy joins Allinial Global but reaffirms IAPA relationship

Top 20 firm Wilkins Kennedy has joined Allinial Global, an international association of independent accounting and consulting firms

A NORTH AMERICAN ASSOCIATION has been boosted by its first UK member, Wilkins Kennedy, joining its membership.

The south-east firm has joined Allinial Global, an association predominantly based in the US. Wilkins Kennedy already operates through the IAPA association, which gives it links to 70 countries, but stated it had “currently had no plans to leave” IAPA due to its international reach.

Wilkins Kennedy’s move gives it the chance to expand its services offering to the US, explained the firm’s international contact partner Adam Wilson. International tax, M&A, corporate/private client advisory and outsourcing/payroll will be key market opportunities for the firm.

“Many North American companies still see London and the UK as their gateway to Europe. Excellent transport links, a favourable business environment and an English-speaking workforce make it a preferred location for inward investment both directly to the UK, and still (post-Brexit) as a stepping-stone into the Eurozone,” said Wilson.

Wilkins Kennedy is ranked 19th on the 2016 Top 50+50 Survey, supported by Sage, with £40.5m in fee income. It has been involved in a number of mergers this year, including Lakin Clark and JR Antoine & Partners.
