New Member Firm in Lesotho
01 Oct 2015
PKF International Limited has strengthened its global coverage with the admission of SMAS Auditors as a member firm in Lesotho. The firm was previously an exclusive correspondent of PKF.
SMAS Auditors, based in Maseru, has 2 partners and provides a full range of assurance, tax and advisory services to organisations across a range of sectors. The firm has a full-service team with global experience, and specialises in professional accountancy services with a focus on audit, tax, financial advisory, accounting, and professional accounting training. This addition expands the PKF network's presence to include the Kingdom of Lesotho.
PKF International CEO, John Sim, said: "We are really pleased to welcome SMAS Auditors to the PKF International network as we continue to expand and strengthen the PKF brand. SMAS Auditors fits well with our value proposition of Quality with Integrity, and also meets our strategic objective of global coverage with quality firms."
Mr. Sunday Adache, managing partner, says "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 teamwork, and the strong focus on people and clients. This event is a long awaited transformation for us and our existing and potential clients."
This is a significant development for the Lesotho Institute of Accountants (LIA), which has been keen to attract globally recognised practices to the Kingdom of Lesotho. The success story of SMAS Auditors in this direction is charting a new course for accounting professional practice in Lesotho.
SMAS Auditors will rebrand as PKF Lesotho with effect from February 1, 2016.
