Managing partner of BA Tokyo & Co, Nobuyuki Hara says: “Japan has a unique culture, customs and regulations. We joined the UHY network for a number of reasons. Compared to other mid-size audit firms in Japan, our experienced teams offer a high level of service with English language skill in addition to our knowledge of Japanese accounting and tax regulations. The global presence of the network combined with the expertise and knowledge of UHY’s 6300 people around the world not only strengthens our own capabilities, locally and internationally, but also these of our current and potential clients and their operations.
John Wolfgang, Chairman of UHY commented: “We are delighted BA Tokyo & Co have joined the UHY network, extending our coverage in Asia. The firm’s admittance to the UHY network is expected to add a significant resource to the network, not least through specialist knowledge of cultural and business practices in Japan.”
