Top twenty accounting network HLB has extended its reach in Latin America with the addition of new member firms in Mexico and Jamaica. 

Joining its HLB Mexico organisation, HLB FFA Consultores is a professional services firm based in Tijuana, a city just south of the US border. Founded in 2010, the firm has expertise in financial audit, tax consulting, business consulting, payroll & accounting outsourcing, tax refunds, transfer pricing and social security advice. 

The addition bolsters HLB’s expertise and presence in the Baja California region, which the firm describes as a “key economic market” in Mexico. Francisco Garate Estrada, Managing Partner  of HLB FFA Consultores said: “Being located along the Mexico border with the US has allowed us to have a broad perspective in understanding our local and international client's needs. We believe that this is what makes us different from the rest.”
