Our Core Values

Member Firms are appointed based on the quality of service they provide in terms of both technical competence and service delivery. Members of the DFK ANZ Association are classified as Network firms in compliance with IFAC requirements.

Each member firm is independent and a separate legal, financial and administrative entity, practicing under the laws in the country in which they are based. Member firms are locally owned, operated and managed and each is responsible for its own liabilities.


Quite simply, we believe in doing the right thing for our clients, staff and community. This means we speak with candour, we keep promises and we deliver on time.



We see our work as a shared journey to create a better future for you and your business. This means we seek regular contact to share knowledge and insights to ensure innovation and growth.


We’ve focused on turning experience into expertise for our clients. This means we create continuous learning environments across our firms, sharing knowledge and industry insights.


Technical expertise is vital, but genuine understanding is crucial. Our firms are run by business owners, and this means you’ll experience a relationship of empathy and responsiveness.
