UHY International Strengthens Presence in Africa: Two New Firms in Ghana Join the UHY Network

UHY LLP in the US welcomes two new member firms in Ghana, Voscon Chartered Accountants and Douglas Godwinson World, to the global accountancy network UHY, of which our firm has been a member since 2001. Both firms will rebrand to UHY Voscon and UHY Godwinson respectively and are both based in Accra, the Ghanaian capital.

Voscon Chartered Accountants was founded in 1991 and now has a team of 21 staff including four partners. The firm provides audit, tax and bookkeeping services to a portfolio of clients in the information technology, building and civil engineering, non-banking financial services, trade and commerce, and non-governmental organization sectors. Their main focus is on supporting their clients’ interests in Gambia, Ghana, Liberia, Nigeria, Ivory Coast, Sierra Leone and Burkina Faso. The team speaks English as well as local languages.

Managing partner of Voscon Chartered Accountants, Emmanuel K. D. Abbey, comments: “We have joined the UHY network for a number of reasons. We are a philosophically aligned group of senior professionals who strive to achieve the best for our clients. Therefore becoming part of the UHY global network, with its cohesive brand, will allow us to further develop our local resources to support new ventures and develop new markets. The global presence of the network combined with its rich and varied resources and knowledge sharing by UHY’s people around the world not only enhances our own capabilities, locally and internationally, but also those of our clients and their operations. Having the support of an established network will help us to navigate the challenges that come to our way. We look forward to elevating our business through a successful cooperation with other firms operating within the UHY network.”

Douglas Godwinson World was founded in 2006 and has two partners and 10 staff. The firm’s focus is on providing tax, audit and bookkeeping services for clients in the oil marketing, construction, commerce and manufacturing sectors.

Managing partner, Godwin V Azasu of Douglas Godwinson World, comments: “Our firm’s affiliation to the UHY network underpins our desire to be part of a global network of likeminded professionals who seek to apply their skills to solve international and sometimes more complex business issues and, thereby, help improve our clients’ operations, add value and enhance the overall standards in our business communities. We are excited to belong to the UHY family.”

Richard David, Chief Operating Officer of UHY Advisors, Inc. and director of UHY International commented: “We are delighted both firms in Ghana have joined the UHY network extending our coverage and capabilities in Africa. Especially with Ghana being one of the key economic growing powers in sub-Saharan Africa known for the production of natural resources. Douglas Godwinson World and Voscon Chartered Accountants’ admittance to the UHY network will bring strong market and sector expertise, enhancing our capabilities in this region. We strongly believe both firms are a very good fit for our network.”
