PKF George has three partners and offers assurance, tax and advisory services.

PKF George’s managing director Cobus Goosen said: “PKF is a respected and widely recognised brand in the local and international accounting and business community and this key strategic move reflects the growing importance of supporting our clients as they expand locally and internationally, while retaining our independence.

“We relate very strongly to the network’s values especially passion, quality and integrity, and the strong focus on people and clients. It is a great fit for us.”

PKF’s South Africa chairman Theo Vermaak commented: “The addition of PKF George to the South African network is a key reflection of our strategy, to selectively grow our presence throughout South Africa with the right people.

“The firm has a strong focus on the owner-managed market and, with its solutions-driven service philosophy and investment in technology, will complement our existing knowledge base. We are delighted to welcome PKF George to our family!”
