The firm’s operations are conducted by two central departments:

  1. Auditing ,taxation, internal auditing and accounting

  3. Services for foreign companies acting in Israel.

The concept behind  Nexia International of which our office is a part, is to provide a broad range of business services under a “one-stop-shop” umbrella. Clients are served by a multi-disciplinary team, which includes accountants, economists, as well as marketing and finance consultants. This integrated approach offers all the professional services that a small to mid-size business might require, in a cost-effective outsourcing framework. This includes professional brainstorming, generating a constant flow of new ideas for enhancing the client’s business. The result of this integrated approach is the maximizing of benefits the consulting process has to offer.

We can, naturally, custom-tailor the range of professional services that we provide, in order to suit the individual needs of the client.
