In July 2017, the Andersen name debuted in Africa when Andersen Tax launched in Lagos and Abuja in Nigeria. Today, as we celebrate our two-year anniversary, our Nigerian team is recognized as a leader in our region. The Andersen name now has a far greater presence throughout Africa through the Member Firms and Collaborating Firms of Andersen Global.
Since its arrival in Nigeria, Andersen Tax LP has been engaged in many landmark transactions, achieving significant tax benefits for its clients, getting the tax authorities to agree with views on tax benefits accruable to clients, to putting the investment structures together to help render the best returns to all stakeholders. Andersen Tax LP is also an acknowledged leader in Transfer Pricing.
This success is indicative of the values that are at the core of our global organization: Best In Class, Stewardship, Transparency, Seamless Service and Independence. These values resonate with clients throughout the region and are at the heart of our growth.
In two years, Andersen Global's Sub-Saharan presence has grown from two offices in Nigeria to 13 countries from South Africa to Côte d'Ivorie. At the end of this year, Andersen Global will add a presence in as many as four other countries on the continent. The international association is on track to have a presence in close to 30 countries in Africa by the end of 2020.
