The OECD developed thirteen (13) Action Points to mitigate BEPS.

CELEBRATING PEDABO AT 20

In 1998 when we started, I am sure we could not have predicted where Pedabo would be in 20 years. But here we are after 20 years of hard work, and God being gracious unto us, we are not surprised at the height we have attained in our growth. As we commence our journey for the next 20 years, we want to first acknowledge the presence of God as the captain of our ship and thank Him for how He has led us and where He is leading us to.

Our focus has always been to listen to our clients, identify their needs and adapt positively to meet those needs. This we have done consistently in the last 20 years. We have had to respond to both economical and political changes that had impacted professional practice worldwide, and we consistently built on our strength to enable us support our clients both corporate, government and non-governmental organisations. Growing from a zero-client base to the client size we have today shows that our success depends on our clients’ success. It is for this reason that I want to use this opportunity to express our gratitude to our esteemed clients, some of which have been with us consistently for over 15 years.

The last 20 years have witnessed growth in every facet of the firm and from a small one room office in 1998, we now operate in addition to the Lagos head office, our fast-growing office in Abuja and our presence in Ghana is serving as our arrow head into the West African region.

Our staff strength has crossed the 110 mark, all with varying backgrounds and experiences which have continuously helped in meeting the diverse needs of our clients. Our human capital remains our priceless asset and the consistency, dedication, professionalism and integrity of our employees have continuously endeared them to our clients and regulatory authorities. Like all professional firms, a good number of our staff had gone ahead to pursue their career in other fields or industry. We thank them all for their contribution to the success story that Pedabo has been thus far.

Of course, I must also acknowledge and thank our immediate families who were patient and have continued to encourage us; our friends and colleagues who supported and ensured we always got that opportunity to sell ourselves. As we look forward, we shall continue to harness our strength in technical competence, with more purposeful training, both internal and external. We would also maintain a professional and cordial relationships with all the regulatory authorities to forge a strategic partnership that will ensure we support them while meeting our clients’ needs. Our belief is that we must fight ourselves into the psyche of the market, such that the name – Pedabo – will be remembered as a firm to be reckoned with in Audit, Tax and Advisory Services.

Congratulations to all Partners and staff of Pedabo as we celebrate this milestone and look forward to celebrating a more rewarding next 20 years in a much bigger PEDABO.

Thank you and Cheers!!!!
