DOGA Group, Barcelona, Spain
Sector: Manufacturing & Automotive
The company has more than 60 years of experience in the development and production of automotive components. It has affiliated companies in Italy, USA, Mexico, Brazil, China and India, and sells products to more than 70 countries. Its markets include industrial vehicles, buses, trains, agriculture and construction machinery, boats, motorcycles and cars.
The group was expanding its operations in Brazil, China, India, Mexico and was seeking local firms to ensure compliance with local laws and to audit the subsidiary financial statements for consolidation purposes.
DOGA Group’s management team was unhappy with the performance of the local accounting firms they were using at the time. They discussed their needs with Kreston Spanish member firm Kreston Iberaudit which the company already used for other services. Kreston Iberaudit explained the advantages of using the Kreston Global network, and DOGA subsequently began working with Kreston Partnership in Brazil. They were so pleased with its work that they appointed Kreston Global member firms in India and Mexico (Kreston Rangamani & Kreston BSG) to carry out similar work.
Montse Martin, the company’s Finance Director, said: “DOGA Group has engaged the services of Kreston’s Partners in Spain, Brazil and China for Audit, Tax and Transfer Pricing matters for several years. As a result of this mutually beneficial relationship, we are now turning to Kreston firms in India and Mexico to assist our international subsidiaries.
“To date, we have been extremely impressed with the dedication of the Kreston Partners and their ability to provide a personalised service throughout, tailored to the requirements of each of our affiliates.”
“The cohesion between members across the network is one of Kreston’s greatest strengths and we look forward to their continued support”.
Elena Ramírez Marín, lead client partner for DOGA Group at Kreston Iberaudit, commented:
“It has been very gratifying to help our friends at DOGA expand their international operations. The work has also highlighted the tremendous benefits the Kreston Global network gives to both clients and member firms.”
