The asset performance management solutions company specialises in assisting some of the world’s leading oil and gas, mining utilities and transportation companies to lower costs, reduce production risk, minimise downtime and increase profits.
Instigated in June 2013, the project involved collaboration between five Praxity member firms to deliver audit and tax services.
Led by Junaide Latif, Director of Audit & Assurance at William Buck Queensland, Australia, the team included Rouse Partners (England), Mazars (Johannesburg), BKD (Denver, Colorado) and MNP (Abbotsford, British Columbia). For service continuity, Junaide remained the client’s main point of contact.
Reflecting on the success, Junaide commented, “We aspire to assist our clients wherever possible, and in this instance we were able to facilitate this successful collaboration of Praxity member firms to meet the needs of our client”.
Bindi Palmer, Partner at Rouse Partners reinforces that collaboration was unquestionably central to winning this assignment and demonstrating added value to the client.
“By working as one team, we were able to meet the client’s needs in terms of fees, delivering clear communication and offering a smooth, seamless service.”
“One of our team members, Jade Norman, was seconded to William Buck last year and she was involved in this assignment,” explains Bindi. “Her familiarity with their team helped us to build a strong cohesion between firms. The client and each member of the team were fully aware of progress at each stage.”
A seamless service offering
Gerard Roddis, CA in International Tax at MNP adds: “We assisted Oniqua in managing its Canadian income tax filing obligations. MNP was able to work directly with William Buck so that the client enjoyed a seamless service offering. The relationship between MNP and William Buck meant that we fully understood the clients situation and specific needs and were able to work quickly to meet their expectations.”
