“When we were looking for a China based accounting firm with a fundamental understanding of our Belgian background as well as the ability of connecting two diverging business cultures, MSA was our first choice. As our company operates with the corporate ERP-system Oracle, we are delighted that MSA works through a proprietary access directly in our system, ensuring availability of our company figures in the format we are accustomed to. During our company's setup procedure, they managed to organize particular steps without the personal presence of the company representatives (e.g. opening a bank account) by identifying alternative verification procedures. We appreciate that MSA always listens out for our queries. They are very well connected both within China and internationally. Besides our questions regarding our China business, we are glad to receive advice on queries regarding other international topics from their connections within their global network.
