International audits need to be approached with sharp thought, straight talk and common sense. It's what all stakeholders want, whether regulators, directors or shareholders.

Grant Thornton firms provide this approach by combining international experience with business and technical expertise. Partners are involved at key stages in the audit to make sure that teams are drawing the right conclusions. There are also important issues of principle: a belief in accessibility and the need for responsiveness based on understanding the client's business.

Grant Thornton audits provide assurance that the reported financial results are fair and meet the necessary standards internationally. They go further in providing insight into the real performance of a business, whatever its size or nature.

  • Tax services

Our firm has tax specialists whose expertise covers the whole range of tax services available in Ethiopia. Tax regimes and compliance regulations change rapidly; corporate activities in one jurisdiction can have a major impact on tax liabilities in others. Through innovative solutions that manage your liabilities, Grant Thornton tax specialists can give you the advice you need to achieve your commercial objectives.
