We live in a world where international business has become an upcoming trend, therefore alliances are a necessity. Making a deal or opening a branch in another country is complex. It is good to know there are accounting frims that can help you achieve your ambition. In Belgium, Alaska is the solution. “We have a great network of knowledge, both national and international,” tells Niek Verstraete, manager at the Alaska branch in Ghent. Alaska was founded in 2007 and is organised as a Belgian economic interest group meaning that the offices in Bruges, Ghent, Hasselt, Kortrijk and Ypres are – from a legal point of view – independent entities.
