Independent Accounting Firms Get International Reach

Century Business Services, Inc. (CBIZ) and Mayer Hoffman McCann P.C. announced on July 21 that they would provide international accounting services through an affiliation with Kreston International. Together, CBIZ and Mayer Hoffman McCann P.C., rank among the top ten accounting firms in the U.S. With this agreement, they join one of the largest accounting networks in the world.

“We are excited to finalize a formal international relationship,” says Len Miller, Senior Vice President, CBIZ Accounting, Tax & Advisory Services. “Our membership in Kreston International allows us to build our national platform by offering our clients international accounting capabilities.”

The affiliation with Kreston gives Cleveland-based CBIZ Accounting, Tax & Advisory’s 35 offices and Leawood, Kansas-based Mayer Hoffman McCann’s 27 offices access to Kreston International’s 428 offices in 72 countries. Headquartered in the United Kingdom, Kreston International is a network of independent CPA and business consulting firms like CBIZ and Mayer Hoffman McCann who share the cost of the network’s operating costs.

“Basically, these days it’s becoming a little bit more important to be able to offer our clients some international ability,” CBIZ spokesperson Lori Novicks told the Kansas City Business Journal. “With the affiliation with Kreston, we will be able to expand our international accounting services to our clients.”
