In today’s super-connected world, few businesses are restricted by national borders. However, local knowledge and expertise remain important, particularly when it comes to complexities of accounting and finance. CPAAI with MGI Worldwide is a global association and network of audit, accounting, tax and business consulting professionals that enables members to share information, experience and opportunities.

Where it all began

In 1957, three firms from Los Angeles, Minneapolis and San Francisco formed a group of independent CPA firms, the first of its kind in the United States, to improve their practices and assist each other with client work.

Over the decades many changes and advances have taken place to bring the Association to where we are today; a global organisation providing quality services and resources to members across the globe.  The structure of the global accounting association creates a platform for professionals to share information, resources, fresh ideas, consulting and planning assistance to other members and their clients.

Us and MGI Worldwide

In January 2020, CPAAI merged with MGI Worldwide to create a major international accounting association and network that combines almost 9,000 professionals in over 100 countries.

Together we are Bigger, Better, Different.

Our new organisation brings more opportunities for members and more benefits to clients. To find out more about MGI Worldwide, go HERE or visit
