To serve the growing accounting needs of international firms, a partnership of independent and franchised accounting offices has been created. Under the name of the National Associated Certified Public Accounting Firms, or NACPAF, members of the group can establish a framework of accounting standards to be used in all situations. The firm was founded in 1979 and in the past 30 years has helped to reconcile the many differences in international accounting.

The trend in accounting practices is to offer the customer a higher level of personal attention. NACPAF wants to make sure that all participating offices and firms have the knowledge and ability necessary to carry out this new standard for customers. In addition to standard accounting and auditing, a firm must be able to complete the following tasks with precision: financial planning and tax planning for corporations as well as individual clients, helping with budget programs, estimating tax costs for business transactions involving international companies, support for litigation, proper valuation of companies, evaluation of current IT systems, and retirement or pension advice.

The role of NACPAF is to make sure that the end clients are not sent to firms outside the structure of the organization when another firm could perform the required services. By opening up the channel of information, all of the capabilities of an individual firm should be well documented to make sure that a client does not need to use external help. In this manner, business retention will stay within NACPAF and future gains for both the customer and the firms involved can be realized. The best way to achieve this aim is to engage in accurate and frequent communication with each and every firm that makes up NACPAF. Thus, all of the available services and opportunities will be kept and the client will benefit from a one stop accounting firm that anticipates and services all of their needs.
