Cheshire accountants, Afford Bond, have recently joined forces with LEA (Leading Edge Alliance) Global to provide expanded access for clients, to a worldwide network of accounting, consulting and business experts in diverse service lines and industries.

To become a member, all LEA Global ( ) firms must go through rigorous due diligence before being accepted – and all members are aligned with each other to develop and deliver creative solutions to mutual clients.

Director, Tom Hornbuckle commented: “LEA Global is one of the largest alliances of its kind and has member firms across the world. This partnership will allow us to service our clients who trade internationally and attract new clients who may have outgrown the expertise of their existing accountants – especially if they do not themselves, have overseas offices. We already collaborate with other LEA member firms, so this is a natural progression.”

LEA Global network of firms operate in more than 100 countries. The network allows firms to meaningfully collaborate across international territories and ultimately, provide clients with an enhanced and joined up approach.
