Praxity are delighted to announce a new member to our global collaboration of independent accounting firms. The addition of the highly respected Puente Sur in Chile extends Praxity’s international reach in Latin America. Membership of Praxity gives independent firms around the world an opportunity to connect with likeminded firms in different jurisdictions to share expertise and help clients meet their business goals. The new member provides an extensive range of accounting and local expertise.
Santiago-based Puente Sur employs 100 staff and specialises in tax, accounting, payroll and administrative solutions and support to foreign investors in Chile. The firm provides a proactive service to allow clients to efficiently comply with local regulations including maintaining expats in Chile and navigating the local banking system.
Ignacio Gepp, Tax Partner at Puente Sur, said the opportunity to develop international relationships through Praxity while retaining the firm’s independence was a deciding factor in applying to be a Praxity member.
“Puente Sur has been developing an identity of its own for over 27 years, and thrives on building business and friendly relationships all over the world. We believe respecting different identities and encouraging the development of trust through new relationships is the bread and butter of Praxity, which is why the choice of this Alliance was so clear. In joining Praxity, we believe that a new chapter begins wherein cross-border capabilities and opportunities, both for our clients, friends, and staff will become a tangible reality. This Alliance is Puente Sur’s gateway to a true multi-jurisdictional experience, one that we expect will give our business partners the reach that they deserve.”
Samantha Louis, CEO of Praxity said that “I am delighted to welcome Puente Sur into the Praxity family. As the world’s leading and largest Alliance, we look closely at the quality of the firms we allow to join. The firm is a strong addition to the Alliance and strengthens our Latin America presence. It will provide a valuable service to existing and new clients.”
