International Tax Accounting and Compliance Services to Include UK
WHITE PLAINS, New York, July 14, 2010 - WTP Advisors, a global tax and business advisory consultancy, announces
an alliance with Hopkins Consulting, a UK-based tax and accounting firm. This
partnership enables the award-winning WTP Advisors to offer tax and
compliance services for both UK companies as well as multinationals with UK
"WTP and Hopkins share similar expertise and philosophies. We have a
wealth of 'big four' experience but prefer stronger relationships with our
clients which in turn lead to tangible, valuable results for their
companies," says Ian Boccaccio, co-founder and principal of WTP Advisors.
Both WTP Advisors and Hopkins Consulting have a history of winning
clients away from the big four because of their ability to respond on a dime,
their efficiency, and their technical know-how. However, while most of WTP
Advisors' existing clients have international operations, they tend to engage
the big four for their tax compliance and accounting needs abroad.
"They do this for convenience, because the big four can provide global
coverage," explains Boccaccio, "however, we hear that some clients are
dissatisfied with the cost and quality of the product they receive so we want
to provide a WTP alternative to these clients for their international needs,
much in the way we market an attractive alternative in the United States."
In short, bringing a WTP branded UK firm to market for its clients will
give WTP Advisors the foot-in-the-door it needs to compete for international
business. Hopkins has existing relationships with firms in Europe and in
Ireland that WTP will seek to leverage.
"We are thrilled to be a part of WTP Advisors," says Simon Hopkins, CEO
and founder of Hopkins Consulting, "WTP's expansion reflects its rapid
success in this space, and supports the philosophy that people prefer a
hands-on approach that emphasizes practical advice based on technical
detail." Hopkins began the consultancy after working for more than a decade
with Ernst & Young, one of the largest tax consultancies in the world. While
there, he worked with major multinational corporations including Coca-Cola,
Harley-Davidson, Times Mirror, GB Airways and DKNY.
