Global professional services networks PrimeGlobal and Integra International have expanded their coverage in Asia with the addition of new member firms.

The admission of KAMP Accounting & Corporate Services marks PrimeGlobal’s entry into the Myanmar market. “Myanmar is an emerging ASEAN country with a promising future. The addition of a footprint in Myanmar aligns with our commitment to extend our market coverage in Asia,” said George Guo, PrimeGlobal’s Executive Director for Asia Pacific.

The Yangon-based company supports clients with accounting, auditing, IRFS compliance, internal audit, company incorporation, payrolling and tax advisory services. The 15-strong professional services firm is led by Managing Partner Kyaw Thiha.

“KAMP Accounting & Corporate Services prides itself in providing professional services with the highest ethical standards of integrity, competency and objectivity to ensure the client’s interests. As we are the first PrimeGlobal member firm from Myanmar, we look forward to sharing our knowledge about Myanmar tax regulations, financial reporting standards and investment opportunities with our fellow members,” said Thiha.

Globally, PrimeGlobal has more than 24,000 staff, generating combined annual revenues of approximately $3 billion.
