Grant Thornton en Panamá

More than 45 years ago, at the end of 1971, three Certified Public Accountants of Panama, John C. Cheng, Franklin A. Gonzalez S. and Rafael E. Newball, joined professional efforts to form CHENG, GONZÁLEZ, NEWBALL AND ASSOCIATES, an accounting firm that services owner manage companies in Panama.

Thus began the firm from a small office ceded by Mr. Osvaldo Terán J. within the companies Aire Frio, S.A in Avenida Martín Sosa, who was also his first client.  In August 1975, the firm definitively changed its name to CHENG Y ASOCIADOS and in 1998 incorporated into its corporate name the international firm to be called GRANT THORNTON CHENG Y ASOCIADOS. 

In January 2001, GRANT THORNTON CHENG AND ASOCIADOS merged with CORPORACION DE PROFESIONALES ASOCIADOS, incorporating a select portfolio of clients and two new partners, significantly increasing the number of staff in its team of professionals.

 The staff at Grant Thornton Cheng y Asociados consists of more than 65 highly qualified professionals with high levels of training and experience, with the aim of building, sharing and using the knwoledge acquired for the benefit of our clients.

Our membership in a global organization allows us to offer the same specialized services in the main commercial and financial centers around the world, applying common methodologies and cutting-edge technolgy platforms.
