    UHY Maaji announces corporate social responsibility initiatives in Nigeria

    UHY Maaji & Co, Nigerian member firm of the global accounting network, UHY, has announced new CSR policy initiatives aimed at impacting on the lives of Nigerians.

    The organisation is, among other initiatives, offering scholarships to qualified Nigerian students who gain admission to universities and other tertiary institutions to study accounting.

    The Managing Partner UHY Maaji & Co, Mr. Gabriel Idahosa announced this in Lagos. He said that the new UHY CSR drive in Nigeria would also focus on supporting Nigerian institutions that promote high accounting standards and corporate governance.

    In another development, the UHY Executive Office in London has announced an expansion of the network with the appointment of two new member firms - Handson & Partners of Belgium and Audit & Tax Services, S.A. de C.V. of El Salvador.

    Handson & Partners was established by ex‘Big Four’ accountant Peter Van Rooy in 2005. With four partners and 65 staff, the firm has offices in Antwerp, Brussels, Ghent and Hasselt providing a wide range of accounting and consultancy services. Eighty percent of the firm’s clients are international or global companies covering a variety of sectors such IT, construction, automotive industries, services, and banking and credit institutions.

    Managing partner, Peter Van Rooy says: “We joined the UHY network for a number of reasons. With the Big Four we share a lot regarding professionalism, training, coaching and remuneration policy; with the local accountants we share a downtoearth attitude; and with the interim offices we share the ability to help companies with temporary staffing issues.

    Joining an international network is not a choice; it is a must for our firm. We work a lot for international clients and regularly receive requests for services outside Belgium. 

    Until now we have used our own network to respond to our client needs; however it is clear that through joining the UHY network we will expand our international reach.”
    John Wolfgang, Chairman of UHY commented: “We are delighted Handson & Partners have joined the UHY network and we are sure their presence in the Flemish region will further enhance our capabilities in the Belgian market, jointly with our other member firm, UHYCDP Partners.“

    Secondly, Audit & Tax Services, S.A. de C.V. based in San Salvador, was constituted in May 2010 by managing partner José Eduardo Amaya and Alba Patricia Fabian de Amaya. 

    With client operations in South and Central America, and in the Caribbean, Audit & Tax Services, S.A. de C.V. provides a wide range of auditing, accounting, tax, business advisory services, including insolvency and corporate recovery. Their typical clients range from large corporates to small and mediumsized companies. 

    The firm has a portfolio of clients in a variety of sectors such nonalcoholic drinks industry, pharmaceuticals, oil industry and financial services.
    Managing Partner, José Eduardo Amaya says: “We joined the UHY network for a number of reasons. 

    The global presence of the network combined with the expertise and knowledge of UHY’s 7600 people around the world not only strengthens our own capabilities, locally and internationally, but also these of our clients and their operations.”

    John Wolfgang, Chairman of UHY commented: “We are delighted Audit & Tax Services, S.A. de C.V. have joined the UHY network, extending our coverage of the Central America region. 

    The firm’s admittance to the UHY network adds a great deal of regional market and sector expertise and we strongly believe the firm will provide the depth and breadth of knowledge and experience required to strengthen UHY’s presence in the Americas.”

    Following their admission, the firm is currently undertaking a re-branding exercise to become UHY branded in order to capitalise on the benefits and recognition created by the UHY network globally.
