Russell Bedford names first member firm in Qatar
Doha, May 29, 2013
Global accounting and audit network Russell Bedford International has appointed RBSA Audit Firm (previously known as Saoud Abdullah Auditing Firm) as its first member company in Qatar.
The addition of RBSA Audit Firm further extends the network’s growing presence in the Middle East and Gulf markets, said a statement from the company.
Established in Qatar in 2004 by managing partner Hani Mukhaimer, Saoud Abdullah Auditing Firm has since developed into a full-service firm specialising in audit, tax, corporate finance, mergers and acquisitions, insolvency, estate planning, and transaction support.
Having adopted the Russell Bedford brand on joining the network it will henceforth be known as RBSA Audit Firm. The firm has four principals and around 20 staff, said its top official.
“After several years of sustained growth it was clear to us we needed the market presence and resources of an established international network to continue to support our clients in their domestic and cross-border expansion,” remarked Hani Mukhaimer.
The new firm will provide accounting, audit, tax and management consultancy services to companies and organisations in the manufacturing, real estate, tourism, banking, insurance, services, government and not-for-profit sectors, and to inbound investors seeking to establish or grow their presence in Qatar, he added.
Russell Bedford International CEO Alan Bezzant said, “The Middle East and Gulf markets are a crucial area for us, and we are delighted to establish our presence in Qatar with one of the leading firms in this market."
"We look forward to working closely with RBSA in supporting the needs of our member firms in the region,” he added.-TradeArabia News Service
