When Michio Ishii co-founded EOS Accountants LLP in 1996, the industry veteran thought it wise to cater exclusively to Japanese-owned companies in the United States and base the firm just a stone’s throw away from New York City.
“Our firm is focused entirely on Japanese businesses in the United States. We have eight locations across the country and a representative office in Tokyo with more than 100 employees,” said Ishii, co-founder and co-managing partner of EOS Accountants LLP.
Over the last 18 years, EOS Accountants has built an impressive roster of longstanding clients across the country. Aside from its U.S. head office in Hackensack, New Jersey, the firm opened seven other offices in Michigan, California, Hawaii, Illinois, Tennessee and Japan.
Following the global recession in 2008, Japanese companies in the United States sought alternatives to the so-called Big Four accounting firms.
Aside from the full suite of accounting and tax services and a more streamlined cost structure, EOS Accountants offers extensive knowledge of the distinctive business practices and cultures in the United States and Japan.
“Our familiarity with the business culture and accounting practices in both Japan and the United States allows us to serve our clients better,” said Ishii, who, along with his colleagues, honed their expertise through experience working with some of the largest firms in the country.
Because of its long-running and close relationships with its clients, EOS Accountants has nurtured an image in the industry as a reliable service provider and business partner that will intently listen to clients’ situations and support them to accomplish their goals.
For its medium-term plans, EOS Accountants is working to expand its client base of Japanese multinational companies and widen activities in the southern United States through an office in Houston.
“Through our partnership, let’s grow together!” said Ishii, whose firm has a proven track record in accounting, auditing, tax, transfer pricing and payroll services for all industries.
