Helping accountants work internationally

With the accountancy industry highly dominated by large international accounting firms it is often difficult for small and medium-sized accountancy firms to make their presence felt in the International accounting arena. As a result joining an international association, like EAI International, is the easiest way for an independent firm to work and service their clients internationally.  

Since 1986 EAI International member firms have been offering a wide variety of services including audit, accounting, financial management, corporate finance, mergers and acquisitions, payroll, local and international tax advice to both corporate and private clients.

All EAI members are qualified and regulated in their own jurisdiction and are vetted prior to being approved for membership.

Our purpose, our members

EAI International’s purppose is to provide its members and their clients with easy access to qualified and independent full-service firms who are able to service their clients’ globally.

Our members provide high quality, and in many cases award winning, accountancy, auditing, personal and corporate tax advice worldwide. Our members cover a broad spectrum of industries and many are highly respected in their professional field with excellent professional reputations.

An EAI member is an adviser that you can trust to act transparently and ethically with client focus, professionalism and respect.
