Our promise to our clients

The hallmark of OCRA Worldwide’s service is that it is based on personal contact with our in-house professional specialists.

We are committed to help our clients develop their businesses, save money and get the best return on their capital, all in a cost-effective manner.

As such, we:

  • Strive to provide staff continuity on each client assignment.
  • Take time to understand the business of our clients as a whole, as well as their aims and objectives.
  • Unless specifically requested, we do not offer quick fix solutions (though there can often be a need for such a remedy).
  • We look to the future to ensure that our solutions are robust and we aim to provide long term security by providing the right solutions.

We do not seek to compete with the large accounting firms or law practices that offer an excellent service. We are a focused and creative group of practitioners, specialising in matters related to the Indian Ocean, who take an interest in our corporate clients’ business.
