About Alfa Accountants en Adviseurs

Alfa Accountants en Adviseurs is a Dutch based accounting firm with a rich history. The company was founded in 1942 during WWII. Alfa has since grown into a solid company with more than 900 professionals working from 30 offices across the Netherlands.

Alfa excels in providing an excellent customer experience. The company creates a dynamic synergy with customers and supports them through times of dilemma and breakthroughs, through good times and bad times. By surrounding customers with financial expertise and industry knowledge, and, above all, by providing customers with full attention, whenever it is required.

That philosophy resulted in maintaining solid growth in the challenging Dutch economy over the last couple of years, when many other accounting firms achieved only marginal or negative growth rates. This is an achievement that Alfa is very proud of. Another unique aspect of Alfa is that the company belongs to its employees, which creates a very open and social we-culture within the company. Like most companies, one of Alfa’s primary goals is making a profit, but also whilst maintaining a strong focus on creating a sustainable and social working environment for our co-workers and customers.

Fou-Khan Tsang, CEO at Alfa: "We think joining B Corp is important because it integrates seamlessly with the type of organization that we want to be and how we like to present ourselves. Especially at this time, it is of great significance for an organization to pay more attention to society and the environment."

The Change We Seek®

Alfa seeks to become a leading company in the Dutch accounting industry in the field of sustainably and conscious entrepreneurship and to sustain that position through the years.

When Alfa started back in 1942 as a foundation, the goal was to offer an affordable and dependable accounting service to farmers all over The Netherlands. This is still one of Alfa’s main objectives. By unburdening small and medium businesses of their accounting and tax activities, they can focus on improving their products and the services they provide to their customers.
