Rowleys joins DFK UK & Ireland as Newest Member Firm

Rowleys, a leading independent firm of accountants based in Leicester, joins as the 17th member of DFK UKI, a National Group within the DFK International global alliance. This step further strengthens DFK UKI's regional presence and highlights its commitment to promoting collaboration among high-quality firms.

As the newest member, Rowleys will gain access to the international resources and opportunities facilitated by DFK International.

Being among the first to register with the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW), they have demonstrated a commitment to professional standards and a dedication to serving as trusted advisors for their clients.

Rowleys’ focus is primarily on privately held businesses and individuals, however, over the past twenty years, the firm has strategically expanded its portfolio, placing additional emphasis on regulatory work, particularly in audit services, and the development of key sectors including Charities, Pension Fund Audits, and Medical Practices. To support their growth, in recent years, they have recruited individuals with specialist expertise, creating a balance within the workforce between long-standing members who have internalised Rowleys’ ethos over time, and new additions, who bring fresh perspectives.

Rowleys offers a comprehensive suite of services including audit, accounting and outsourcing, payroll, tax, wills, probate, corporate finance, and business valuations, catering to a diverse range of sectors such as pensions, family business, small business start-ups, mid-market SMEs, medical, charities, and not-for-profit organisations.

Commenting on the announcement, Tom Copson, Managing Partner at Rowleys, said:

"We are dedicated to investing in our growth and building upon our capabilities to better serve our clients. This opportunity will not only benefit those with existing international connections but will also aid us in supporting those who are looking to expand into overseas markets. We have some fantastic expertise and joining DFK presents an exciting opportunity for us to utilise their global footprint for our continued growth.

Both the team at DFK and also the other firms we have met, whom we now look forward to collaborating with, have been extremely impressive – they have similar core values to those we possess at Rowleys and there is a genuine support network that exists between the UKI firms which we feel proud to now be involved in.”

Mark Ashfield, Chairman of DFK UKI, commented:

"I am delighted to see our National Group further expanding with the addition of more high-quality firms. Our focus is on creating an environment where members integrate seamlessly with one another, support each other and overcome challenges together, as a collective.

Rowleys is another fantastic example of a like-minded firm that shares our commitment to excellence and we are excited to have them on board."
