Increasingly our clients require assistance abroad. For businesses, global boundaries are shrinking.
Many of our clients trade abroad and require guidance on local regulations and issues such as overseas local laws and setting up a new company abroad.
Many of our private clients have property and investments abroad and in most instances, where they have a concern abroad, it is tax related.
TIAG (The International Accounting Group)
To support these clients Mercer & Hole became a founder member of The International Accounting Group (TIAG) in January 2003. The alliance was set up to bring together like-minded firms of accountants across the globe. Since these firms are independent, Mercer & Hole does not have legal responsibility for the work produced by member firms. However, they each strive to offer a high quality of work and good technical standards to help ensure that clients receive advice pertinent to each local market.
Our international alliance is unusual by working alongside a sister group, TAGLaw. This provides us with the resources to recommend legal firms to clients who require legal advice abroad. This integrated approach between the groups ensures that we have access to a unique blend of resources for our clients.
Membership of TIAG is growing continuously, with representation in every continent. There are more than 100 TIAG members in over 60 countries and if you look at TIAG and TAGLaw combined there are in excess of 8,000 professionals on hand from over 223 member firms in over 100 countries and a total combined revenue of over $2.5bn.
The range of services available abroad via TIAG member firms is extensive and includes:
- Accountancy, audit and assurance
- Corporate and business taxation
- Corporate finance
- Litigation support
- Private client tax and trusts
- Business insolvency
- Personal recovery and turnaround

Many businesses have foreign assets, debtors, investments, creditors or investors, branches or other establishments; or parent/subsidiary companies.
When insolvency threatens, you must assess the values and risks of these foreign connections and the UK, foreign and international laws that apply to them. Specialist advice is invariably essential, which we can provide either directly or through our international alliance of insolvency professionals, accountants (TIAG) and lawyers (TAGLaw).
Chris Laughton, who heads our international insolvency services, is a leading practitioner in this field and is the immediate past President of INSOL Europe and joint editor of Eurofenix, the pre-eminent European insolvency journal.
