Baker tilly joined forces with Caribbean Payroll Company (CPC) and Balance Recruitment and Assessment Dutch Caribbean to assist the St. Maarten business community with recruitment, organisation and team development. Baker Tilly will continue its financial- and tax advisory activities, which include auditing, accounting, tax- and financial advice. “We noticed that many clients require more than accounting and tax assistance only. Often, we looked for solutions in the field of human resources and payroll activities. Now that we teamed up with Balance Dutch Caribbean and Caribbean Payroll Company (CPC), we can truly be a one-stop-location for many of our clients”, says Erik van Engelen, Managing Director at Baker Tilly.

“We believe that successful businesses have specific fields of expertise in-house to achieve their operational excellence. For us, that obviously is audit, accounting, tax- and financial advisory services. Payroll and human resource management are also specialities that we find imperative for successful business operations, which is why we engaged in this partnership with Balance and CPC”, Maarten Tervoort adds, Managing Director and Tax Advisor at Baker Tilly.

Curaçao-based CPC was already active on St. Maarten with approximately 30 clients which portfolio doubled by combining forces with Baker Tilly. Since September 1st, they are located in the same office as Baker Tilly on the Goldfinch Rd 11 in Pointe Blanche.

Balance is also the exclusive provider of the Management Drives assessments and management trainings in the Caribbean region.
