We are one of the leading and fastest-growing accounting and business advisory groups in Singapore, founded since 1985. RSM Chio Lim LLP is a public accounting entity offering assurance and tax services; whilst Stone Forest is the umbrella name under which the business advisory and business support services operate. Together, we are the largest accounting and business advisory group outside the Big 4 in Singapore. On the international front, we are the Singapore member of RSM International.
Technical competence, proactive client servicing and its ability to keep up with market needs allow us to provide value-added services to promising local enterprises and to help them grow. We focus on internationally active and growing businesses. We support every stage of a business' development, from incorporation to public listing, regional expansion, mergers & acquisitions, to exit like divestment. We also assist businesses in financial difficulties through various insolvency procedures. We offer one-stop professionalism, convenience, and peace of mind to entrepreneurs - local and foreign - to set up and conduct business in Singapore and the region.
In 1996, we embarked on an extensive exercise to put several quality systems in place, which led to the public accounting arm becoming the first accounting firm in Singapore to be ISO 9002 certified in 1997. (The ISO 9002 has been replaced by ISO 9001:2008 in Year 2010).
PCAOB RegistrationThe public accounting arm is also registered with the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) in the USA.
PCAOB was established by the Sarbanes-Oxley Act 2002 to oversee the
audit of US public companies. Accounting firms auditing the financial
statements of these companies must be registered with the PCAOB, which
implements quality control, ethics standards and periodic inspections
and possible disciplinary proceedings.
