PKF International Limited has strengthened its global coverage with the admission of PKF Zambia Chartered Accountants as a member firm in Zambia.
PKF Zambia Chartered Accountants, based in Lusaka, Livingstone and Ndola, has 5 partners and provides a full range of assurance, tax and advisory services to both private and public companies across a range of sectors.. The firm was previously a member of Praxity AISBL and operated under the name of Moores Rowland Chartered Accountants. This addition expands the PKF network's presence to cover a strategically important region in sub-Saharan Africa.
PKF International CEO, John Sim, said: "We are really pleased to welcome PKF Zambia Chartered Accountants to the PKF International network as we continue to expand and strengthen our African footprint. PKF Zambia Chartered Accountants fits well with our value proposition of Quality with Integrity, and also meets our strategic objective of global coverage with quality firms".
Says Antony Ranjan, the firm's managing partner: "PKF is a respected and widely recognised brand in global accountancy and this key strategic move reflects the growing importance of supporting our clients as they expand internationally. We relate very strongly to the network's values of quality, independence and responsiveness, and the strong focus on people and clients. It is a great fit for us."
Moores Rowland Chartered Accountants has rebranded as PKF Zambia Chartered Accountants with effect from 1 January 2015.
Ranjan concludes: "We are confident that we will be able to serve our clients more efficiently with an effective reach and provide a diverse range of services that are demanded by our clients in an increasingly competitive and rapidly changing environment. The accountancy and assurance profession has evolved significantly over the years and is becoming increasingly sophisticated, complex, demanding and challenging. The regulatory requirements from the tax authorities, the accounting institutes and other regulators are becoming more stringent by the day. New technologies and innovative management concepts and practices are also becoming business critical. To respond to these challenges and demanding needs of our clients, we consider this new association important for rendering a comprehensive range of services to our valued clients. Indeed we are proud of this achievement to serve our clients better."
