UHY strengthens presence in the Caribbean as firm in Jamaica joins the network

Global accountancy network UHY extends its coverage within the Americas by appointing UHY Dawgen Chartered Accountants.

With two partners and an English-speaking team of 18 staff, the firm has offices in Kingston, Mandeville, Montego Bay and Ocho Rios providing a wide range of audit, accounting, tax and management consulting services. Recently, the firm launched its HR Solutions Services which includes obtaining work permits for foreign nationals, and will shortly also be adding insolvency and restructuring services to their offerings. UHY Dawgen Chartered Accountants' typical clients cover a variety of sectors such distribution, construction, entertainment, media and communications.

UHY Dawgen Chartered Accountants was established in 2002 by ex-'Big Four' accountant Dawkins Brown, who has more than 15 years' experience in the profession and regularly lectures in financial strategy, audit, international financial reporting standards and tax at various institutions in Jamaica.

Managing partner, Dawkins Brown says: "Our reason for joining UHY is to align our firm with a more growth-oriented international network. The global presence of UHY combined with the expertise and knowledge of UHY's 6,300 people around the world not only strengthens our own capabilities, locally and internationally, but also those of our clients and their operations."

John Wolfgang, Chairman of UHY commented: "We are delighted UHY Dawgen Chartered Accountants have joined the UHY network, extending our coverage in this American region. The firm's admittance to the UHY network adds a great deal of regional market and sector expertise and we strongly believe the firm will provide the depth and breadth of knowledge and experience required to strengthen UHY's presence in the Caribbean." 

Following their admission, the firm is currently undertaking a rebranding exercise to adopt the UHY brand in order to capitalise on the benefits and recognition created by the UHY network globally.
