BARRETT and PARTNERS Vanuatu is a leading chartered accounting and consulting firm in Port Vila, Vanuatu. Its origins date back to 1971: the firm operated under the international firm of Coopers & Lybrand until September 1992 when Lindsay Barrett and Adrian Sinclair purchased the remaining equity and changed the name to Barrett & Sinclair. In September 1995, the firm joined the international firm, BDO International B.V. In 1997, the local firm of Stafford & Associates merged with the firm and Mark Stafford became a partner. Now, the firm practices as BARRETT & PARTNERS.
The firm also established its own trust company, Trustees International Limited (TIL) (formerly Vanuatu International Trust Company Limited (VITCO)), in 1971. This company has been granted licences to operate as a financial institution and a trust company.
Today, BARRETT & PARTNERS Vanuatu is one of the largest firms in Port Vila, and enjoys a reputation for providing efficient, high quality service to its clients, both locally and internationally. Besides operating a traditional accounting practice, providing audit, consulting, insolvency and management services, the firm, through TIL, provides trustee services and funds and portfolio management to its expanding group of overseas-based clients.
