Welcome To Our Latest Newsletter

Dear Valued Clients,

   Welcome to our E-Newsletter January 2017

   Happy new year to you all. I hope that 2017 will be a fabulous year full of great achievements and experiences for all of you. Now that we’re into the new year, it’s good to a quick look back before we plan ahead.

   2016 was an eventful year for us at 3E Accounting Singapore. We have been through many developments and we are proud to say that with the continuous support that we received from all of you, we have achieved quite a huge amount. On 22nd February 2016, 3E Accounting received the OCBC Valued Partner Award for the continuous support and partnership 2015/2016 with OCBC Bank. A month later, 3E Accounting Pte. Ltd. was recognized by Singapore Brand as a Top Player Firm in Singapore.

   On 21 April 2016, 3E Accounting Pte. Ltd., being one of the TAFEP Exemplary Employer Award 2016 winner, was invited to talk about fair, responsible and progressive employment practices, live on Capital 95.8FM. What’s more, On 28 November 2016, we are honoured to have the Senior Minister of State, Mrs Josephine Teo, visited our headquarter office in Singapore. During the visit, Mrs Teo got to know the good employment practices that we adopted in 3E Accounting and the technology we used to enhance work productivity.

   While there is much work to do and there may be further challenges ahead, we end 2016 stronger and better able to serve customers and clients.

   This year alone, we have successfully expanded our 3E International network into 29 countries. We have a big agenda for the future. We aim to expand our global network into 50 countries by 2018 with Europe as our main focus. We have in recent weeks completed our partnership agreement with two more members, one from Germany and the other one from Ireland. We wish to take this opportunity to extend a warm welcome to both our partners, Kanzlei Dr. Oehler of Germany and RM & CO. of Ireland.

   Simply put: We aim to do our best for our valued clients with our steadfast missions: Efficiency, Effectiveness and Economy.

   As a responsible company, 3E Accounting has the greatest respect for its employees, customers, community and environment, and that has led us to contribute and focus more on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). From the Beach Clean-up Initiative to SAF Care Fund, we are trying to do more and play our part in corporate social responsibility.

   The past few years have had a significant impact on all of us, but I would like to thank you all for your significant and continuous support especially during challenging times. The year ahead will bring its own challenges but I’m sure by working together, keeping focused on our priorities and putting our customers first we can realise our ambitions. These will certainly continue to be my priorities and I am convinced that I can count on you to do the same.

Thank you.
