DFK International has been ranked as the 6th largest association in the world in the International Accounting Bulletin’s (IAB’s) annual 2022 World Survey Report.
Crowleys DFK has been a proud member of DFK International for twenty-nine years.
The report is based on collective fee income, with DFK International members firms achieving a turnover of $1.532 billion.
DFK has sat in seventh place for 10 years but has moved up the list after achieving a growth rate of 3% compared to the previous year.
The association now has 230 member firms, 1,413 partners, 13,919 staff members and 455 offices in 94 countries.
Martin Sharp, executive director of DFK International, said:
“We are very proud to be among the leading associations worldwide.
Moving up to sixth place demonstrates that despite the pandemic, DFK remains one of the strongest associations in the world and our member firms have continued to grow, which is a fantastic achievement.
We have seen growth across all services lines, particularly in North America, which shows that our members have continued to provide outstanding support to their clients in a challenging environment and in-turn have expanded their practices.
We now look forward to another successful year as we continue to do business and share knowledge and best practice to achieve further growth.”
Being a part of an association with a strong global presence has greatly widened Crowleys DFK’s intellectual resources, allowing us to offer local advice supported by a broader knowledge of international financial reporting.
This breadth of knowledge is a critical resource for our clients, which include leading firms in industries such as information and communications technology, e-commerce, life sciences, manufacturing and consumer products.
These clients find that our expert team provides fundamental advice on structuring their Irish operations, on securing Government funding, and dealing with tax and legal obligations.
As Ireland continues to be a vital hub for international business, our understanding of the challenges faced by companies moving into Ireland will continue to be a critical resource.
Eddie Murphy, Head of Tax and FDI Services at Crowleys DFK, said:
“At Crowleys DFK, we understand the challenges faced by our SME and owner-managed business clients. We are proud of the reputation and long-term relationships we have built with them over the years.
Whether it’s getting advice on taking on two employees in Germany, accessing capital markets in London or New York or helping technology companies expand into San Francisco, we connect our clients with trusted professionals throughout the world.
In many cases our clients prefer to deal with us and in these instances, we instruct the other DFK firms. This means clients can concentrate on their business and don’t need to spend time developing new relationships abroad.”
