PrimeGlobal member firms SPC Group, India and Moore Colson recently worked together on a project to achieve mutual profitability and build competitive competency. Karan Gupta, Partner & Practice Development Leader, SPC India shares his experience of working with Moore Colson and his relationship with Managing Partner Bert Mills.

Every year PrimeGlobal members have access to high impact PrimeGlobal conferences. Before the pandemic began these events were a great opportunity for global members to connect at exciting locations spanning the globe. Karan Gupta, Partner & Practice Development Leader, SPC India said "As an active member from India, I cannot begin to explain the immense networking power and experience sharing that comes from having hundreds of Partners from CPA and Advisory firms from across the globe under one roof. We at SPC Group (SP Chopra & Co.), India and Moore Colson CPA & Advisors, GA, USA have been working together since the beginning of 2020 on Offshore Risk Assurance & Advisory (SOX & SOC) services. Our organizations have successfully worked out an off-shore Service Delivery Model and, despite the COVID impact, kept our discussions alive to work with the SPC Shared Services Centre where Primeglobal members can leverage the manpower arbitrage opportunities."

Bert Mills, Managing Partner at Moore Colson CPA & Advisors first met Karan, Partner & Practice Development Leader, SPC India at the PrimeGlobal World Conference in Mexico, back in 2017 where they spoke about their businesses at the Mexican Gala nights. While they have met at several conferences in between, the idea to begin working together took roots at the Rome World Conference in 2019 where they discussed how growing competition from the Big 4 and pressure to reduce cost had led to lower margins and loss of business to mid-size firms, globally. Moore Colson, specifically the RACS team partnered with SPC in the execution of a SOC attestation. 

Mills Bert
"Throughout the project, the SPC team was always well prepared and offered valuable insights from their varied experiences. ​Our work with them even led to the creation of new forms and templates that will help us drive efficiencies in our practice. We definitely plan to continue this partnership in the future as it allows us to remain competitive in our marketplace. We look forward to a long-standing professional relationship with them.”" Bert Mills, Managing Partner, Moore Colson CPA & Advisors
