Russell Bedford Announces Appointment of Correspondent Firm in Algeria

Deramchi & Azzouz joins Russell Bedford global accounting network as Algerian correspondent

London, United Kingdom, January 27, 2010 --( Russell Bedford International has selected Deramchi & Azzouz as its Algerian correspondent firm, helping to complete the accounting network's coverage in North Africa.

The firm was originally established as a tax consulting practice in 1996 by Abdallah Deramchi following his 32 years as a tax director in the Algerian Public Administration.

The practice expanded into a public accounting and audit firm soon after Abdallah Deramchi was joined by his son Riad Mohamed Deramchi, a chartered accountant and registered auditor, in 1999. In 2009, the Algiers-based practice was further strengthened by the integration of the office of Salim Azzouz, giving it a presence in Oran, Algeria's second largest city. Salim Azzouz is also a chartered accountant and registered auditor.

Deramchi & Azzouz, which has a total of more than 40 personnel, is now one of the top-10 accounting practices in the country. The firm has a broad range of expertise and experience covering the fields of finance, accountancy, taxation, labour law and expatriate legislation. Services are provided to a client base comprising private and public corporations, a large proportion of which are multinationals, including many well know brand names.

Members of the professional team are generally trilingual in Arabic, French and English.

The firm is certified by the Directorate General for Taxes for the provision of tax advisory services, by the National Institute of Public Accountants and Auditors (ONECC) for accountancy and statutory auditing services, and also by the Directorate General for Customs for advisory services concerning international trade.
