High quality, responsive English language services at competitive prices

We operate on the basis of no surprises for our clients because we understand that nobody likes getting bills for services they did not agree to or finding out about an obligation or issue after the fact.

Our billing is pre-agreed, fixed, transparent and predictable.

Our team includes native English speaking accountants from IFRS jurisdictions and qualified Chilean auditors and accountants.

We offer high levels of service, communication and professionalism at very competitive prices.

We ensure our clients understand with and comply with their obligations in Chile and we work with our clients to produce the management reports and parent entity or off-shore reporting formats they need.

If clients have a question or need accounting advice we work with them to provide everything they need from the basics of recording and reporting through to more complex issues like wage components and taxation compliance and accounting treatments.

Our focus is small to medium businesses in any field. Our client base includes: foreign governments in Chile; engineering companies; retail companies; services companies; manufacturing companies; individuals; and mining operations.

We use SoftLand accounting systems which is the most widely used business accounting system in Chile. We host our own data centre to ensure all data and records are properly maintained with back up.
