Case study

A good example of international collaboration is our positive relationship with fellow MGI Worldwide member Revideco AB based in Sweden.

Its team reached out to us to assist one of their clients who needed some UK specific advice relating to a subsidiary in England. The Revideco team has offices in Stockholm, Skellefteå, Sundsvall and Göteborg. Revideco are authorised accountants and auditors and have provided accounting, audit and consultancy services in Sweden since 1994.  

As a result of the introduction by partners at Revideco we were able to assist a Cheshire-based company which manufactures and retails all-natural supplements for dogs, in its annual Audit requirements. We were delighted to have been appointed by the client to undertake this activity and we are pleased that the relationship has developed positively.

“We are pleased with the relationship we have created with Alexander Knight & Co in the United Kingdom and it is pleasing to see that through our membership of MGI Worldwide we are able to identify high quality collaboration partners who can assist our clients with UK accountancy requirements.”
Antti Niemi
Partner, Revideco AB
"We are delighted to have been referred by our MGI Worldwide colleagues in Sweden. It’s a really good example of how likeminded accountants from different jurisdictions can operate effectively and develop strong and trusted relationships through the association. We would like to thank the Revideco team. We are looking forward to developing our professional relationship even more in 2024 and beyond."
