About us

PKF Latvia

SIA PKF Latvia is a licenced certified auditors’ company providing auditing, accounting, due diligence and other advisory services to entities operating or willing to start operations in Latvia.

The firm was established in 1991. In its early days PKF Latvia (under its original name – ACS) was a business consulting firm, but audit services have been our principal activity since 1997.

PKF Latvia is a company owned by Latvian certified auditors.

Our priority is service quality, which, as we believe, is based on:

  • a high level of professional competence of partners and staff which is continuously developed,

  • a significant involvement of a partner in each engagement,

  • team-work,

  • an ability to build and sustain supportive, trust based relationships with clients.

Our clients are mainly small and medium sized businesses requiring an audit or a review of financial statements, willing to outsource accounting function or requiring professional advice throughout various stages of business development. Being a small firm, we are able to respond quickly to client needs and offer individual service tailored to the client’s requirements. We have established long-term relationships with many Latvian companies and international businesses and appreciate the loyalty of our clients.

Since 1997 PKF Latvia is a member firm of the PKF International Limited family of legally independent firms.
