International accountancy and consultancy network PKF has expanded its presence in South East Europe with the addition of a new member firm in Croatia. The new member firm provides a full range of services: auditing, accounting, tax and business advisory services, to both private and public companies across a wide range of sectors. 

With over 400 offices operating in 150 countries across five regions, PKF is one of the globe’s top 20 accounting networks. The firm’s latest expansion into Croatia sees PKF International grow its presence in South East Europe to ten countries, adding to existing operations in Bulgaria, Cyprus, Israel, Macedonia, Malta, Romania, Serbia and Turkey.

To enter the Croatian market, PKF has agreed on an alliance with Anticic Savjetovanje, a local independent accounting and advisory firm. The company consist of three specialised services firms: Zagreb-based Tax Consulting Anticic, Forenzika Prima, and Varazdin-based Knjigovodstvo. All three firms have been rebranded as PKF and grouped under the ‘PKF Croatia’ umbrella, in a bid to “leverage the strong PKF brand,” according to Diana Anticic, Managing Partner of the newly formed company.

“We are really pleased to welcome PKF Croatia to our international network as we continue to expand and strengthen the PKF brand.

She further holds professional licenses including certified auditor, certified internal auditor, certified forensic accountant, certified company valuator and certified conciliator.
