Grant Thornton Uganda is driven by a simple ambition: to be the only choice for dynamic businesses


Dynamic organisations need a broad range of advisory services to support their ambition and growth.   

As your business grows, our advisory services are designed to help you achieve your goals.  Successful growth often means navigating a complex array of opportunities, challenges and risks. 

Our experienced practitioners are available to help you understand, adapt to and overcome the various obstacles that may stand in the way.

Why Grant Thornton

Because you know your own businesses, we’ll listen to your needs. As part of the advisory process, we ask questions and pay attention to your responses. Rather than relying on off-the-shelf services that could loosely fit a range of clients, challenges and markets, we develop solutions tailored to your organisation and its unique requirements and objectives.

As a global organisation of member firms, we offer:

  • integrated cross-border solutions
  • strong collaborative networks
  • centralised tools, methodologies and delivery models.
We offer a broad range of Advisory services, which include:

Business risk services

  • internal audit
  • governance and risk management
  • risk modelling services
  • operational advisory and improvement services.

Transaction advisory

  • M&A advisory
  • capital markets
  • project financing
  • due diligence

Obtaining a strategic advantage

Dynamic organisations need to focus their energies on driving the business forward and outsourcing could help you achieve this.

Transferring certain services to a third party not only allows you to concentrate on your core business, it can also improve efficiency and cut costs.

Whatever the size of your organisation or wherever you are in the world, we apply both reason and instinct to make sure your business is running as effectively as possible.

When it comes to outsourcing, we don’t believe in off-the-shelf solutions. We listen carefully to your business needs and deliver comprehensive, efficient and confidential services.
