Who we are

Our quality

The most important value shared among our member firms is “a safe pair of hands”.  When one of our firms is supported by a fellow member in another part of the world, they need to be sure that their client’s precious business will be looked after with the high quality and expertise that they are used to at home.

Our quality assurance (QA) systems are innovative and efficient. While we do not have the resources of the very biggest firms, with their globe-trotting QA departments, we leverage member expertise and technology to focus QA review and remediation where it is most needed.

Trusted PartnerlighterThe MGI Worldwide QA Review

The MGI Worldwide QA system is based on the international quality standard ISQC-1.  Every year, firms report through responsive, multilingual, online systems on their compliance with our standards. Our systems give immediate feedback for items that need improvement and remediation. To help foster continuous improvement, we offer web-based training and support. 

On site reviews

Every three years each member firm is subject to an onsite review. The whole of our review process is supported and operated by a leading audit and accountancy training and quality review company, SWAT UK, part of the training and quality specialist group, Wilmington plc. 

Our Technical Committee, which supervises the QA system, evaluates the level of QA controls in each firm and scores its performance. Improvement and re-review plans are agreed and, in some cases, disciplinary actions are taken. Firms which systematically score low in QA and show no sign of improvement are dismissed from MGI Worldwide. 

MGI Worldwide takes quality assurance seriously – it is at the heart of how we deal with our clients and the reputation we have built during more than 70 years of international service.

    For us it is very important to belong to an international organisation for our business but also for keeping our clients. From one client alone, it has allowed MGI Worldwide members to obtain revenues exceeding 300,000 euros from one multi national client in the last four years.

    We have a lot of family owned businesses, non-profits and governments and we needed the depth of technical expertise all over the United States and the world. It took us a lot of time to find the right organisation to join before choosing MGI"
