Find Accountancy, Audit and Tax expertise in Antigua and Barbuda

Overview

There is recognisable accountancy activity to be found in Antigua and Barbuda: local member firms of the international accountancy network of two major global players are settled in Antigua’s capital city St. John’s – PWC and KPMG. The country has seen increasing efforts to enhance accounting and auditing standards. In 2012 several workshops took place in Antigua aimed at developing accountants’ capacity to provide training in the use of the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). The standards have been adopted by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of the Eastern Caribbean (ICAEC) as local GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles). In 2006 the World Bank completed a report on Standards and Codes on the quality of accounting and auditing infrastructures and practices in the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS). As a result of this the World Bank approved a grant of US$455,000 to help to address the issues identified, and the ICAEC was given a mandate to deliver three core aims before 2013. In the World Banks’ Ease of Doing Business Index (2011) Antigua and Barbuda placed 81st in the world (out of 183 countries) for resolving insolvency, in comparison to St Lucia at 58th, Grenada at 119th and Trinidad and Tobago at 133rd.
