Leading business advisory & corporate services firm

Abacus was established in 2001 after a spin off from a Big 4 accounting firm. We are one of the most prominent professional services firms in the EMEA region and a leading provider of international business services in the fields of business advisory, investment funds, regulation/ licensing, compliance, corporate administration, taxation, family office management, and accountancy to clients worldwide.

When we founded Abacus, we set out to build a different business advisory and corporate services firm. A firm with a special culture and corporate lifestyle. A firm that our people would view as home, our clients would trust, and our partners and communities would respect and admire.

Our values and principles, as well as our unified mindset to approaching business, create a human, bold, high-performance culture which enables us to serve in extraordinary ways.

Our business is founded on trust. And we can only safeguard this by adopting a risk-based approach to all our operations and adapting our behavior to prioritize risk. In this respect, fully implementing all relevant Cypriot, European and international legislation is paramount, along with setting the bar high when it comes to harmonizing the firm’s internal policies, structures and processes to the most up-to-date worldwide best practices in Corporate Governance and Compliance. And we do not stop here. We are strongly committed to cultivating a deep culture of ethics. A culture that goes beyond abiding to laws and regulations, and driven by underlying principles of integrity, transparency, and accountability.

Outside the Big 4, Abacus is the largest professional services firm in Cyprus and one of the leading international business advisory firms in the EMEA region. It is regulated by the Institute of Certified Public Accountants in Cyprus and its management are members of the professional accountancy bodies of the UK, USA and Australia.

Abacus partners and members of senior management previously held partnership or other senior positions with global network firm heavyweights in Cyprus or abroad. With its Big 4 legacy, complete independence and DNA in business advisory and corporate services, Abacus combines best practices and the highest professional standard with business instinct and an entrepreneurial mindset.

Local Insight. Global Intelligence.

In the world of professional service providers, clients are often faced with a difficult choice – a local organization that delivers depth, insight and personal attention but lacks the resources, global understanding/context, and expertise to meet their needs or a large global firm with expansive resources, but impersonal, often with insufficient local depth and a cookie cutter approach to serving clients.

Abacus removes all trade-offs and ensures that clients do not need to make compromises. With our deep local insight and expertise, our business instinct, global intelligence and massive network of prominent clients, partners, and associates around the world, we are perfectly positioned and equipped to satisfy all of our clients’ unique business needs. Our clients enjoy international calibre expertise, global awareness and technical depth, combined with highly personalized, local service.
