Kreston International
A global network of independent accounting firms...

International Work

Clive Owen LLP are members of Kreston International Limited, a global network of experienced independent, accountancy firms. Founded in 1971, Kreston offers reliable and convenient access to quality services through member firms located around the globe. Currently ranking as the 13th largest accounting network in the world, Kreston now covers 105 countries with 700 offices providing a resource of over 21,000 professionals and support staff.

The members of Kreston are all strong, progressive and fiercely independent firms of accountants and business and tax advisers (membership is like that of a club, it makes no change to the ownership or management of our business). That is what attracted us to Kreston. The organisation gives us the ability to introduce our clients to like minded firms of advisers who have the local knowledge and contacts to help them develop their business and investment interests abroad. For example this might be opening a new branch or subsidiary overseas; developing a sales network abroad; advice on the local taxation issues of a holiday home; or the incentives for investing in a foreign country.

Our knowledge base for clients who operate on an international level is highly developed. We attend Kreston conferences in the UK, Europe and around the world as part of our membership. This gives us a forum for discussing global accounting issues (an increasingly important issue) and meeting our fellow members. Knowing the key people in the firms around the world is a critical part of Kreston’s success. The first-hand knowledge of local regulations and customs provided by the Kreston member firms can give your organisation an invaluable competitive advantage in the world market place.

We are Kreston's UK representatives for the North East and Yorkshire. We advise fellow member firms' clients locating to this area of the UK and welcome contact from both those clients and fellow Kreston members from around the world. We are accustomed to working closely together with other Kreston firms on client assignments to deliver international solutions, and we are confident that the other Kreston member firms deliver the same high quality expertise that our clients expect from our own service.

The members of Kreston UK have strong links and work together to improve the overall level of service to our respective clients. This network, and the strategic alliances that we have formed within it, gives us the ability to service groups throughout the UK as well as across the globe. The strength and quality of the UK firms were factors that initially attracted us to Kreston. Collectively Kreston UK ranks as the 13th largest firm in the UK.
