Globally (DFK Worldwide)
DFK stands for the initials of three of the association's original founding members (Douglass, Fox, Kidson).
DFK International is a major international association of independent accounting firms and business advisers that has been meeting the needs of clients with interests in more than one country for more than 50 years. The association has over 400 offices across the world. Each DFK member is an independent legal entity in its own country. A grouping of members who include DFK in their firm's name are classified as network firms in compliance with EU and IFAC requirements.
The international association is divided into three regions - The Americas, Asia-Pacific, and Europe, Middle East and Africa.
DFK Everalls is a part of DFK Australia New Zealand (the Asia-Pacific region). DFK Australia New Zealand was listed 19th on BRW's Top 100 Accounting Firms for 2010, and in 2011 was named the fastest growing group in the Australian market.
DFK Everalls has contributed substantially to the development of the DFK international association. Our former Managing Director John Mann was an International Director of DFK International (1994-97). John represented Australia, Papua-New Guinea, New Zealand and the South Pacific area. Our current Managing Director Robert Shelton was Chairman for DFK Australia & New Zealand (DFK ANZ) (2006- 2009) and was the DFK ANZ Director from 2000 to 2013 and an Executive Director of DFK International from 2010 to 2013.
