New member firm in the Philippines joins the UHY network

We welcome new member firm M.L. Aguirre & Co, CPAs, based in the Philippines to the global accountancy network UHY, extending our coverage within the Southeast Asia region.

Ladislav Hornan, chairman of UHY commented: “We are delighted M.L. Aguirre & Co, CPAs has joined the UHY network extending our coverage and capabilities in Southeast Asia. The launching of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Economic Community later this year could boost further growth in the Philippines, as major international firms look to rationalise their operations following the lowering of trade and employment barriers in the region. M.L. Aguirre & Co, CPAs’ admittance to the UHY network will bring strong regional market expertise, enhancing further our capabilities in this region.”

The firm will soon be adopting the UHY branding and languages spoken by the team are English, Filipino and some Chinese.
