DFK International services for its members.

DFK International provides co-ordinating and other services to its member firms in connection with such firm’s practices in the fields of accounting, auditing, tax and management advisory services. DFK International itself does not practice in such fields. Each member firm is independent and is a separate legal, financial and administrative entity, practising under the laws in the country where it is based. Member firms are locally owned, operated and managed and each is responsible for its own liabilities. No single firm is responsible for the services or activities of any other. Members of the association that include DFK in their firm’s name are classified as Network firms in compliance with EU and IFAC requirements.
