About Us

Accru Asia is a unique group of accounting firms with strong capabilities across Australia, Asia and beyond. We help businesses succeed in the Asia Pacific by providing the skills, strategies and multi-cultural team needed to navigate different business cultures and regulatory environments.

Consistency and quality throughout Asia

Accru Asia can provide your business with on-the-ground experts throughout Asia and Australia who meet high quality, globally recognised standards of accounting practice.  Our advisers combine local knowledge with a high level of consistency to smooth the implementation of your Asia Pacific growth strategy.

75 years international experience

As the world’s axis shifts from West to East, the race is on to build trade bridges between Australia and Asia. Accru is already there. Accru in Sydney was established by a European in 1941 and we have been advising international businesses ever since. In 1988 we joined the global association CPA Associates International (CPAAI), and started using our Asian connections to help Australian and Asian clients invest, export and manufacture in the Asia Pacific region.

Long-standing relationships throughout Asia

Our long-standing personal relationships across the Asia Pacific differentiate us. Building trust is important in any market, especially so in Asia where business is more personal and based on longer-term connections.  Our advisers have been working together for over 20 years and our trust has been built through delivering many successful outcomes for clients.

Multi-lingual, multi-cultural support

In Australia, our bi-lingual, first and second-generation accountants from China, Hong Kong, Indonesia and Malaysia bridge cultural and language gaps for clients. Together with our English-speaking Asian advisors, they can help to streamline your global financial management and negotiations across various countries and parties.

Cross-border expertise, scaled to your size

Accru Asia has all the specialist expertise required for cross-border business but, unlike other global networks, we can scale our services to small-to-medium businesses. Whether you are starting-up in a new country, capital raising for international expansion or facing complex global tax issues, we can customise our services to your goals.
