Legal statement

About Baker Tilly International

Baker Tilly International is a leading network of independent accountancy and business advisory firms.

Baker Tilly International refers to the global network of member firms of Baker Tilly International, each of which is a separate and independent legal entity. Baker Tilly International, a UK company limited by guarantee, does not provide services to clients. Services are delivered regionally and nationally by the member firms of Baker Tilly International.

Baker Tilly International member firms are not members of one international partnership or otherwise legal partners with each other, nor are any one firm responsible for the services or activities of any other. Although some firms carry the Baker Tilly name, there is no common ownership among the firms or by Baker Tilly International.

Each member firm is organised under the laws of the territory in which it practices. Each firm is committed to achieving the highest level of quality within its respective marketplace and to striving for consistency in service quality and delivery across the globe by co-operating with other members of the network. However, in most parts of the world, the practice of accounting and auditing is governed by local laws and regulations which determine professional standards, qualifications and relationships between audit professionals and reporting entities, and it is influenced by local business practices and cultural attitudes.

Baker Tilly International Limited is incorporated in England and Wales and subject to English law.

Registered office: New Bridge Street House, 30-34 New Bridge Street, London, EC4V 6BJ, United Kingdom.

VAT registration number: 766 0353 27.

Arrandco Investments Limited is the registered owner of the UK trade mark for Baker Tilly and its associated logo.

Accessibility

This website has been designed to be as accessible as possible to all users. It conforms to all Level A requirements of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines and the majority of Level AA and AAA requirements.

The following features improve navigation for screen-readers, keyboard navigation and users of text-only browsers.

Images

Images are provided with meaningful ALT tags. Where an image is used for purely decorative purposes ALT tags with empty strings are used.

Navigation

Navigation menus are marked up as HTML lists. This ensures that the number of links in the list is read out at the start and can be skipped easily if not required.

Structured HTML

H1 tags are used for main titles and H2 tags for subtitles. Where forms are used, all form controls are correctly labelled and placed in the correct position; form fields follow a logical tab sequence. Where tables are used, all rows and column headers are identified.

Use of JavaScript

All pages are usable when scripts, applets, or other programmatic objects are switched off or not supported.

Use of Colours

Foreground and background colour combinations provide sufficient contrast when viewed by users with colour blindness and related conditions.

Font/Text Sizes

The font size can be changed in all content areas, allowing users to make text larger or smaller depending on their requirements.

To change the size of the text in the most commonly used browsers:

Internet Explorer - select "View" from the top menu bar, select "Text size" and select the required font size
Netscape or Mozilla - select "View" from the top menu bar, select "Text zoom" or "Text size" and select the required font size.

Style Sheets

The Baker Tilly International website uses CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) to support all visual layouts. If your browser does not support CSS, the use of structured HTML ensures the content is still readable and the website is still usable.

Links

Links are written to make sense out of context. A logical tab order is also used, although all links within a specific page open in a new window.
