What makes us different

At Grant Thornton, our global mission is to be the leading business advisors to dynamic organizations by helping them unlock their potential for growth. Here in Taiwan, we accomplish this mission through a series of commitments to our clients, our people and our communities.

What Makes Us Different

Several factors set us apart from the competition. We highlight below some of the things we believe make us different and uniquely place us in a position to help our clients grow.

Better client service

You will have a better client experience than with our competitors, but don't take our word for it. We measure client satisfaction on an annual basis, and clients across the board continuously rank as highly satisfied.

We understand dynamic organisations like yours - we too are growing

We serve dynamic, growing companies that are on the move because we too are a dynamic, growing firm on the move. In Taiwan, we have been growing at double-digits for the past ten years. But like you, we know that the figures and awards only tell a part of the story; we don't serve dynamic companies because we need a new growth engine or want more awards; we serve them because it is rewarding and exciting to play a part in something big. We want to be part of your success and invite you to be part of ours.

Speed and agility to make decisions and resolve issues

Our firm is structured to react quickly to our clients' needs and issues. We are empowered to make decisions locally, rather than moving issues up through a complex chain of command. At Grant Thornton Taiwan, we are committed to responding to inquiries within 24 hours on business days.

A clear understanding of businesses like yours

Our clients range from the world's largest multinational corporations to small- and medium-sized local businesses. Unlike our larger competitors who work almost exclusively with large companies and smaller firms who rarely work with big organisations, the breadth of our client base has allowed us to gain valuable insight into the complexity of how different businesses operate and the variety of issues and risk they face.

Exceptional people committed to making a difference

Our people are our most valuable asset, and we understand that being at the forefront of professional development is vital to our success. One of our strategic priorities is to attract, develop and retain the best people in Taiwan. Our commitment to our people isn't only recognised inside our organisation; around the world Grant Thornton firms have won recognition for the strength of our people and our commitment to their development. In 2013 alone, this included recognition as one of the 50 Most Attractive Global Employers (Universum Global), 100 Best Companies (Working Mother) and Best Provider of Internships and Placements (, among others.

Seamless audit, tax and advisory services

With extensive experience in audit, tax and advisory services, Grant Thornton Taiwan is well placed to provide clients with seamless, cross-service advice. Our combined audit and tax processes allow us to quickly address issues and/or risks your business may face and deal with them in a timely and efficient manner.

While many firms offer just one or two services, Grant Thornton Taiwan offers a wide range of complementary services that provide clients with more thorough, cost effective solutions.

An experienced team

Grant Thornton Taiwan's ratio of member firm partners to professional staff is 1:12 while the average ratio of member firm partners to professional staff at our larger competitors in Taiwan is 1:15 or higher. This allows us to provide personal attention and strong engagement leadership, guaranteeing you high-quality advice from experienced, senior practitioners who are dedicated to meeting your needs.

Tailored, commercial advice

Many large firms offer ‘off the shelf’ advice and solutions to their clients. At Grant Thornton Taiwan, we believe each and every client should always receive tailored, commercial and pragmatic advice regardless of the size or complexity of the project. Grant Thornton's Business Insights Model (BIM) is a proprietary framework we use to discuss a client's business and the best practices we see around the network. The BIM is focused on addressing the critical drivers of growth for any business: strategy & structure, process, people & culture, financial management, and external factors including market needs; regulatory and legal concerns; and customer demands.
