Our Story

Founded in 1981, our firm was one of the first founders and members of the Tunisian Institute of Certified Public Accountants (OECT) created in 1983.We have been trained and educated within the Big Five (now Big Four) environment since 1973.

For 35 years, we rose to the challenge of quality; our firm is certified ISO 9002 for chartered accountancy, tax and legal services. This certification is not an objective in itself. It is rather a means to maintain high-quality service in the long term.

In 2021, we adopted the Andersen “brand” and debuted as the Tunisian member firm of Andersen Global which enhanced our ability to meet a broad spectrum of needs on a global scale. Today, as the world’s main economies are becoming increasingly interdependent, there is an unprecedented need for tax, legal and accounting firms to establish global operations that are capable of meeting the needs of national and multinational corporations.

Tunisia is an integral part of the world economy network and is committed to quality and innovation to sustain global competition. The performance of Tunisian companies is a key factor to their success and we, at Andersen in Tunisia, are firmly committed to ensuring that our clients are fully satisfied with top quality and reliable services that support their operations. Our focus is not restricted to local companies only but extends also to adhere to the requirements of the international market.
