PKF International Limited has strengthened its global coverage with the admission of PKF Azerbaijan (former Zenith Audit) as a new independent member firm.
Zenith Audit, based in Baku, Azerbaijan Republic, has a team of professionals with global expertise and provides a full range of services, including audit, assurance, tax, legal and IT consulting, business advisory, bookkeeping, payroll, HR and marketing. The firm is additionally specialised in technical audit for the oil and gas sector.
Ziya Husseinzadeh, Managing Partner of PKF Azerbaijan says, ‘We see ourselves not just as an accounting firm, but also as innovators in finance. Now is the age of big data analysis, machine learning, managing data and digital assets. We want to combine our IT background and accounting skills. Any auditor can inform the customer if appropriate accounting framework is being followed and internal quality control standards are being enforced. A good auditor brings value for the success of their customer’s firm. We see it as a big opportunity for both the PKF network and us.’
PKF International CEO, John Sim, said: ‘We are really pleased to welcome PKF Azerbaijan to the PKF International network as we continue to expand and strengthen the PKF brand.
