About Nexia Day
To continue the momentum of building a more unified brand, Nexia International (Nexia) has launched Nexia Day (Closer to you).
The idea behind Nexia Day is to enable the Nexia network and member firms to celebrate being part of the network through organising business-focused activities, which promote our brand promise ‘Closer to you’ and the values which underpin this promise. The key theme for any of the activities undertaken by member firms will therefore centre on our brand promise and the values, listed below:
Value 1 – Enduring relationships: Nexia’s strength stems from the quality of personal relationships forged between members and members with their clients, which ensure greater trust, responsiveness and more effective delivery.
Value 2 – Business-minded: Nexia member firms are characterised by people who have an entrepreneurial spirit and who can relate closely to the SME and owner- managed businesses they serve.
Value 3 – Being there for clients (Globally connected): Nexia’s firms are focused on supporting local companies as they grow and expand into new markets.
About Nexia TS:
Nexia TS was founded in 1993 by two experienced chartered accountants – Henry Tan and Sitoh Yih Pin. After working as managers for one of the international accounting firms, they saw a vision and an opportunity to establish their own organisation – not any accounting firm – but one which is unique in their personalised and well-qualified expertise.
To date, Nexia TS is recognised as an established mid-tier local accounting firm. We have grown significantly in size over the years. Being an independent member firm of Nexia International, we are affiliated to accounting firms in many parts of the world. This means that our clients will get to enjoy personalised, comprehensive and quality services at competitive rates in Singapore and globally. Our reputation for quality has been recognised by clients and accounting professionals.
As testimony to this, we are among the first few local accounting firms to be accredited by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Australia to provide supervision of professionals undergoing traineeship to qualify as Chartered Accountants. Headquartered in Singapore, Nexia TS has established a strong presence in various countries across the region. Nexia TS Shanghai is a one-stop centre providing advisory services for foreign-invested enterprises in China. NTS Malaysia and NTS Myanmar provide a full suite of corporate advisory services for our clientele with operations and new foreign investments in the respective countries.
