The Organization

Founded in 1969, HLB International is a worldwide organisation of professional accounting firms with members  and correspondents  in over 100 countries. Ranked in the top 12 largest accounting and business advisory groups worldwide, annual billings are US $941 million, generated by more than 1,500 partners and 10,800 staff in over 430 offices. HLB member firms have extensive experience with all sizes of clients and types of assignments, ranging from large publicly listed and public sector clients through to owner-managed, director controlled companies. 
Member firms are  well established practices of high local standing, often ranking in the top  12 in their locality. In consequence, HLB can  provide high  quality personal services in all the principal business centres world-wide, not only in audit and tax compliance but in a wide range of taxation and financial advisory services at both national and international levels. 
The  regular  involvement of HLB firms in  multi-national assignments, working with  colleagues  around the world, means that it is well aware of the needs of clients with international operations and can respond accordingly.

International Profile

HLB  firms are  well established   firms  of  high local  standing, who  have developed their  practices  on the  basis of their strong  local  knowledge and  contacts. In consequence, our international identity, whether on letter headings, business cards or audit opinions reflects, intentionally, a combination of the  HLB and local names. This  identity, applied consistently throughout the world, distinguishes us from the Big 4 accounting groups. 
It emphasises the strength of both the international organisation and the local firm whilst, at the  same time, demonstrating the close bond between the two. This  bond is illustrated  by the  way we  conduct  international business. The "lead" firm co-ordinates  the professional  services  provided  to the client  internationally, maintaining  close contac t with  HLB firms around the world, supervising the work and identifying and solving any problems as they occur. In this way, HLB provides clients with a close level of personal service, supplied at both local and international levels.
