JBS PRACTICE PUBLIC ACCOUNTING CORPORATION (“JBS Practice”) is a progressive boutique firm offering audit and assurance services to a diverse range of clients, from large privately held corporations, subsidiaries of listed companies to private businesses, entrepreneurs and individuals across a wide range of industries. Many of our clients who are based out of Singapore are mainly from Europe, U.S. and India.
The firm provides services to a diverse range of clients from large corporations, subsidiaries of listed companies to private businesses, charities & societies, entrepreneurs and individuals across a broad array of industry sectors. At JBS Practice, the goal is to look beyond numbers and compliance issues, to provide clients with practical advice to resolve problems and help them achieve their business goals.
JBS Practice has a credible base of local and international clients. The firm is therefore able to offer a good blend of knowledge and experience based on its local and international professional capabilities.
As we have been doing business in the Asian financial hub for the past 2 decades, we have built a solid reputation where we can connect, assist and guide our clients who wish a collaboration in this part of the world.
JBS Practice’s affiliate company provides a one-stop solution for incorporating as well as operating the business in Singapore. It is an integrated business solutions partner that offers the perfect amalgamation of the company’s vision and high-quality personalised services.
JBS Practice is a member of Alliott Group, a worldwide association of carefully selected independent law and accounting firms. Membership differentiates JBS as a local firm with a strong international capability and orientation in Singapore’s business market and connects the firm’s clients and professional staff to a range of strategic information, resources and multidisciplinary services on a worldwide basis. This international resource base is beyond the reach of the typical local, independent accounting firm in Singapore.
JBS Practice would be able to offer a greater array of services to support clients in global markets with the engagement of international specialists in non-core practice areas. We also hope to potentially offer employees secondment opportunities to gain international exposure and at the same time strengthen the brand visibility of the Singapore accountancy profession.
