Building a better working world
Tetsuzo Ota, the founder of the auditing firm that preceded Ernst & Young ShinNihon LLC., said that our mission is to maintain the essence of accounting services and contribute to the eternal prosperity of the Japanese economy by ensuring sound corporate finances. These words had a profound impact on me at the start of my career at EY.
As an accounting and tax professional, I have contributed to society through client satisfaction ever since. Society and our industry are entering a period of significant change. While I provide tax services rather than accounting services, I aim to build a better working world by ensuring the satisfaction of a wide range of clients.
