PKF Phuket can be found in Surin Plaza. We are all full-service office led by Khun Tanyarat Kongniwatsiri who after many years’ experience in Bangkok and Australia with the Big 4 and PKF has made her home in Phuket.
Personal service is a key point of differentiation for us which is a reason why we opened an office in Phuket as serving clients from Bangkok can be less than ideal.
As a leading audit firm in Thailand we work with a diverse range of clients who are listed on stock exchanges across the world. We are SEC certified to audit listed companies in Thailand and Khun Tanyarat is authorised to sign.
We also have a growing business solutions practice in Phuket handled by staff locally.
Nationally our Thai team includes professionals who qualified as accountants in the US, UK, Singapore, Vietnam, Australia as well as in Thailand. This enables us to provide accounting, tax and legal advice across a multitude of jurisdictions.
