Komiyama & Co.: experience and quality

As former deputy chairman of JICPA (Japanese Institute of Certified Public Accountants), and member of the SME/SMP Committee of the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC) where he served as a representative of Japan, Mitsuru has extensive industry experience. He was also a member of IFRS for SMEs committee of The International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) where again he was a representative of Japan.

Komiyama & Co. has assisted international firms who are not experienced in doing business in Japan.  Since the firm’s inception, its management philosophy has always been to give clients peace of mind. Komiyama & Co. believes in providing high quality services as experts in their field and in cultivating strong relationships based on trust.

Mitsuru explains:

“To have our clients say, ‘I can trust this with you,’ is the starting point from which we grow. To contribute to society with our clients’ success is our ultimate goal. By providing increasingly higher quality services, we continue delivering on our clients expectations.”

What motivated Komiyama & Co. to join MGI Worldwide?

The firm has a long history as members of CPAAI and is keen to build on and develop new relationships as members of MGI Worldwide. Mitsuru says:

“We joined CPAAI in 2001. We gained many international friends when I was president of Asia Pacific and also when we had a CPAAI members meeting in Japan. They took us in like members of their family and broadened our horizons, as well as our work. We have joined MGI Worldwide to let more members know about Japan and to gain many friends.”
