Global accountancy network UHY extends its coverage within Scandinavia by appointing RevisorGruppen, a national group of 12 firms based in 17 locations in Norway.
RevisorGruppen was established in Norway, in 1990, by independent middle-sized auditing firms, with a shared aim to co-operate mainly through a common professional learning and education programme. With 38 partners and around 110 staff, RevisorGruppen provides a wide range of auditing, accounting, tax and business advisory services to clients ranging from small to medium-sized companies. The firm has a wealth of experience in a variety of sectors such as the motor industry, consultancy, education, construction, legal, not-for-profit, real estate, restaurant, retail and distribution, and shipping.
Chairman of the RevisorGruppen Board, partner Atle Flø from RevisorGruppen Møre AS, says: “We joined the UHY network for a number of reasons. Our main priority is to improve and expand the services we offer to our existing clients in Norway, followed closely by attracting new international business from Europe and beyond. Our membership of UHY also ensures that our clients will continue to receive the same high standards of service across the network both in Norway and across global borders.”
RevisorGruppen have offices in most of the principal locations in Norway, with ambitions to expand their national presence and capitalise on their international reach. Only very recently, a new member firm, based in Sarpsborg, also joined the group. In the north, member firms are situated in Trondheim, Stjørdal and Selbu; in the west in Åndalsnes, Ulsteinvik, Larsnes, Ålesund, Førde, Bergen, Voss, Sunnhordland; in the south Kristiansand, Skien, Drammen, Akershus; and two members in Oslo.
John Wolfgang, Chairman of UHY commented: “I am delighted to welcome RevisorGruppen to the UHY network. UHY prides itself on the quality and high standards of our members to serve our clients and RevisorGruppen deliver this and more. The group’s admittance to the UHY network adds a great deal of local market and sector expertise and we strongly believe the Group will provide the depth and breadth of knowledge and experience required to strengthen UHY’s presence in Norway.”
All members of RevisorGruppen are members of the Norwegian Institute of Public Accountants. Partner Jan Willem van Woensel Kooy, RevisorGruppen Mæland & Østbye AS, is a member of the board of directors of the Norwegian Institute of Public Accountants, the professional body for registered public accountants and state authorised public accountants in Norway.
