IECnet Today

With more than 70 select member firms located in 65 countries and in 5 continents, 30 languages, over 2,000 staff and 400 partners, IECnet is evolving with global business in mind. Each member firm is a separate legal entity, qualified and operating under the laws and regulations of its own country.
IECnet was ranked 26 in the International Accounting Bulletin 2023 World Survey with a Turnover of US$ 205.5 million.
We have been a member of the Forum of Firms since 2009. The Forum of Firms ("Forum") is an independent association of international networks of firms that perform transnational audits. The Forum's objective is to promote consistent and high-quality standards of financial reporting and auditing practices worldwide— bringing together firms that perform transnational audits and involving them more closely with  International Federation of Accountants' ("IFAC") activities in audit and other assurance-related areas.

IECnet's history

How did we get here?

On 25 September 1987, three accountants, Hervé Abouly (Paris, France), Attilio Cremonesi (Milan, Italy) and Richard Fielz (Luxembourg), decided to create International Eurogroup Consult.

At the beginning it was only a little club of experts in tax and accountancy that sensed the need to network internationally. All the member firms were of European origin and, as the majority of the persons were francophone, the group's dominant language was French. Consequently our association was founded in France.
During the years, the number of member firms increased, reaching in 1997 the number of 32. What was once a “little club” of European professionals evolved into an association of auditors, accountants and tax advisors beyond Europe. English became the official language of the network. As a consequence the name was changed into IEC (International Experts and Consultants).

The growth of IEC continued, reaching 45 members in 2007, and the worldwide exposure got larger. Also internally we changed and became a network of professional firms. In 2010 the name was changed into IECnet to reflect these changes and also the membership in Forum of Firms, the association of international accounting networks, achieved in 2009.

IECnet Day on 25 September

IECnet in the present  and past

IECnet was founded on 25th of September 1987, so we celebrate "IECnet Day" every year on that day. Every year there is a competition among our members: Who organises the most creative idea to celebrate IECnet Day? There have been IECnet cakes, IECnet presentation for employees, donations to charity in the name of IECnet and much more.

On the occasion of IECnet's 30th birthday in 2017, the then IECnet Chairman Tobi Smit gave a speech.
