Accountant

The company

BFS is a long-standing, ITAA approved, firm of certified chartered accountants and tax advisers.

We have over 80 accountants and chartered accountants dedicated to helping our 2,000 clients (individuals, SMEs and major corporations) with their finance and tax affairs.

Because our business relies heavily on legislation and its many adaptations, we have a solid legal team in place. Very few companies in the sector operate in this way, which has established our name and enables us to offer a high standard of quality.

Although BFS is an organisation in constant expansion, the personal development and fulfilment of its employees and providing a pleasant and friendly place to work will always be priorities (in-house and external training, working environment, teambuilding exercises and more…).
