Accounting network Walker Wayland Australasia has detailed plans for further national and international expansion in 2017.
“We believe that great opportunities exist for us through south-east Asia as well as in our traditional areas in both Australia and New Zealand,” John Dorazio, chairman of Walker Wayland Australasia said.
“We will seek representation in the few main populations in which we are not represented, including the south island of New Zealand and in Tasmania and the Northern Territory.”
Last year the network expanded into Indonesia through Jakarta-based firm Doli, Bambang, Sulistiyanto, Dadang & Ali (DBSDA).
It also welcomed Dubbo-based firm Ferrari Gardner and tax law specialist Sutton Douglass Lawyers.
The group will also announce a new range of alliances and benefits for firms and their staff during the first quarter of this year.
Mr Dorazio, who is also a director of Walker Wayland WA, is stepping down as chairman of the network after three years.
Paul Hilton, CEO of Toowoomba-based Power Tynan will replace Mr Dorzio as the chair of the group.
