CLA Global TS Announces Regional Expansion and Updates on Global Connection

Singapore, 27 July 2023 – More than 8 months after the announcement of joining CLA Global Limited (CLA Global); a leading global organisation comprised of independent accounting and advisory firms; CLA Global TS announces regional expansion plans to create winning opportunities for our Clients, our People and our Communities.


Regional Expansions – The Growth Strategist For Asia

CLA Global TS appoints regional leaders to strategise expansion plans in new regional markets.

Henry Tan, Group CEO & Chief Innovation Officer said: “In the recent 1-2 years, businesses took time to plan for recovery from the pandemic; and became stronger and more prepared in dealing with economic headwinds and impacts from geopolitical conflicts. We believe that it is the opportune time to advance into new markets. With our many years of experience operating in Singapore, Malaysia and China, we put our focus on Asia as this region will continue to be the economic growth engine of the world well into the 21st century. CLA Global TS country leaders have conducted market studies on various markets and will lead our People in opening new markets within Asia, creating opportunities for our clients to expand regionally and beyond. Such expansions can involve mergers with like-minded entities in the local markets to best serve our clients.”

With headquarters in Singapore, CLA Global TS has existing operations in Malaysia and Shanghai, China. Operations in the Philippines have been initiated, and more regional expansion plans will be shared at a later date.


Updates on Global Connect – CLA Global

Recently, CLA Global announced the addition of three independent members – dhpg in Germany, VGD Slovakia and VGD Czech Republic. The CLA Global network expects to announce additional high-profile counterparts and member firms in the coming year.

Henry Tan, Group CEO & Chief Innovation Officer said: “There are many opportunities and growth potential in the network which can contribute positively to our Clients and our People. As CLA Global’s key leading firm in Asia, CLA Global TS is proud to be the first independent member firm to join the network in November last year. We may be a smaller firm among the founding members, we appreciate the opportunity to be one of the network’s board members; contributing to the development of the network.”
