A top ten accountancy practice in the Netherlands has been presented with DFK International’s Firm of the Year Award.
Alfa Accountants and Advisors has been named as the 2018 Firm of the Year at DFK International’s Annual Conference in Munich, Germany.
The award recognises the firm which has contributed most to the development of DFK International throughout the year.
Alfa, which celebrated its 75th anniversary last year, joined DFK International in 2014 and has gone on to be highly involved in the organisation.
The firm has a standing member of the DFK International Board of Directors and Members’ Council and is well-represented on several DFK committees.
It has referred work to other DFK members as well as provided accounting, taxation, assurance and consultancy services to clients of other members, responding quickly and professionally to enquiries.
Alfa also regularly sends several delegates to regional and international conferences across the world, and has consistently participated in the DFK Young Professionals development programme.
The firm has been a beacon of ideas for other members and has also been at the forefront of technological innovation in accountancy, sharing its experiences with other members in this area.
Marco Vermin, member of the board of directors at Alfa Accountants and a member of DFK’s executive board of directors, said: “We are extremely proud to receive the DFK International Firm of the Year Award.
“Being a member of DFK International is very important both to us and our clients – it enables us to remain independent but still be part of a large organisation of like-minded firms which have a similar focus.
“We believe it is not just what you get out of a network but also what you put in, so we are very happy to assist other member firms where we are able to as well as participate in DFK committees and conferences and will continue to do this going forward.”
Martin Sharp, executive director of DFK International, added: “As a strong, independent and innovative firm, Alfa embodies all that is good about DFK – passionate and dedicated to client service, going above and beyond to help others, and an unwavering commitment to the highest ethical and professional standards.
“It does all of this while creating a huge sense of satisfaction, fun and reward for its people while caring for the profession, the wider community and the environment.
“DFK International is proud to count Alfa Accountants and Advisors as a member firm and delighted that it has been selected as the DFK International Firm of the Year for 2018.”
