Marlow Dragon Boat Festival 2016

MGI European Area meeting
Rachel Pugh, Associate Director, and Liza Rowles, Client Manager, attended the MGI European Area Meeting this summer which was held in the historic resort of Noordwijk, near Amsterdam.
The meeting was a fantastic opportunity for our firm to develop new and existing relationships with our MGI Worldwide colleagues from across Europe and the world.
MGI Worldwide is a top-20 global network of independent audit, tax, accounting and consulting firms, and we've been members of MGI for over 20 years. Our membership has helped us better service our clients both in the UK and internationally, and attending area meetings such as this provides us with significant business benefits.
The MGI European Area Meeting this summer, focused on three key strategic themes this year:
- Collaborative business building
- Improving the quality of service that members provide for each other
- Developing a culture of engagement
At the meeting, we identified areas where we can help each other provide our clients with international advice and services such as how to set up for VAT in each country. We were also able to share ideas and have How To guides for clients on tax services in other countries.
