Know More About Us
As a socially-responsible firm, we believe in contributing to the society at large, beyond the business domain. On a regular basis, the firm runs Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programs mainly in the education, environmental and community welfare space.
Nexia TS is a part of the Company of Good initiative that supports the national movement to drive corporate giving in Singapore.
About the Company of Good
The Company of Good is a programme that empowers businesses to give better and more holistically. The National Volunteer & Philanthropy Centre (NVPC), in partnership with the Singapore Business Federation Foundation (SBFF) and supported by the Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth (MCCY), has established the Company of Good programme to drive corporate giving in Singapore.
As a Company of Good, the firm has collaborated with its tax specialists to introduce an Online Tax Savings Calculator – Jar of Hearts – that aims to help corporations and individuals to get a general estimation of their potential tax savings when they donate to approved registered Institute of Public Characters (IPCs) in Singapore.
This independent CSR initiative is created to encourage people to give back to the community and at the same time, make giving a more meaningful activity. With that, the firm embarked on this CSR project to assist in enhancing National Volunteer & Philanthropy Centre’s (NVPC) efforts by linking donors and potential donors to a list of approved IPCs, in a bid to help them learn more about their tax savings with the objective to drive donations to good causes which will make the community a better place.

During the financial crisis of 2008 to 2009, we set up the Nexia TS scholarships for the financially needy students in NTU, SMU and SIM, in particular, to support those pursuing the Accountancy degree. As a public accounting firm, we also see this as a way to encourage growth of the accountancy profession and aid aspiring students to achieve their career goals. These scholarships also offer opportunities for internships at our firm and a career path with us upon graduation.
As a professional firm, Nexia TS not only has the responsibility to train staff members in the aspects of technical and professional skills but at the same time instill the values of being socially-responsible individuals by looking beyond themselves.
Through various CSR initiatives to encourage staff members to be more actively involved in community projects, the firm hopes that its CSR-centred culture will extend its influence to those around them, especially to their family members and friends.
Recognising that the firm also has a duty to reduce its carbon footprint, we strive to do our part to create a greener world with various green initiatives in place.
For instance, we have saved a total of 492 trees since 2011 through a corporate recycling program.
Nexia TS is a participant of the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative. The United Nations Global Compact is a call to companies to align strategies and operations with universal principles on human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption.
As a socially responsible firm, we are fully committed to making the Global Compact and its principles part of our strategies, culture and day-to-day operations with our stakeholders.
