March 2016

 

Nexia TS is pleased to announce that the firm has established the Nexia TS Public Accounting Corporation Financial Scholarship with SIM University (UniSIM). The eligibility criteria includes a per capita income measurement as the scholarship is targeted at those who need financial support.

 

 

As part of the firm’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) education initiatives, Nexia TS partnered with UniSIM to award financial scholarships and book prizes to eligible accountancy students. In its contribution to the society at large, beyond the business domain, Nexia TS has been a strong supporter of education since 2008 and is determined to do its part to support and facilitate in its capacity to the accountancy profession in its CSR program.

 

 

“We are always keen to encourage education and in equipping others to learn. Believing that it is more effective to teach someone how to fish, supporting and investing in the students’ future is intrinsic to our firm’s ethos to give back to society we operate in. We will continue to support in whatever ways we can.”

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.

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.
