Baker Tilly International Welcomes New Member Firm in Austria and Announces the Launch of the Baker Tilly Europe Alliance

5 Sep 2016

Baker Tilly International has today announced it has appointed TPA as its new member firm in Austria.

A former member of Crowe Horwath International, TPA is one of the largest professional services firm in Austria, employing over 500 people across 12 offices and offering a full range of tax, audit and consulting services through German and English speaking desks in each location.

TPA in Austria is part of the TPA Group which is active in ten further countries across Central and South East Europe: Albania, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia and Slovenia. In these ten countries where Baker Tilly International has, and will continue to have, existing independent members, the network has entered into an alliance agreement whereby firms within the TPA Group will, with immediate effect, be independent members of the Baker Tilly Europe Alliance. They will not be independent members of Baker Tilly International.

The TPA Group will continue to trade as TPA in all countries where it operates.

Commenting on the development, CEO and President Ted Verkade said: “I’m delighted to welcome TPA in Austria as an independent member of the network. Our coverage within the EU economies is strong and the addition of TPA further strengthens our position in this important market. The firm is ambitious with a clear growth strategy, a dedication to delivering a personal service and a strong international focus.

“Our German member firm, Baker Tilly Roelfs, has a strong relationship with the TPA Group which supports their own ambitious growth plans. The TPA Group as a whole totals around 1,000 employees across 27 offices. The creation of the Baker Tilly Europe Alliance allows all firms within the TPA Group to access Baker Tilly International member firms to service their international clients.”
