The history of the network began in 1974, at the initiative of six chartered accountants in Paris:
André Huet, Victor Amata, Paul Dantonel, Robert Labouze, Pierre Volkaerts and Francis Tailledet.
The network was then called Group France Audit and the concept of a community offering services of general interest was already quite present, having as its stated objective to pool ideas, knowledge, skills and expertise.
Group France Audit grew quickly, became well established and opened offices in the cities of provinces, in the French overseas departments, in the countries of the Maghreb and in Francophone Africa. Group Audit France then joins an international network: HLB.
This growth and involvement at the international level led the network in 2003 to change its international network and to join BAKER TILLY INTERNATIONAL, thus becoming an independent member under the name of BAKER TILLY FRANCE.
Today, BAKER TILLY FRANCE, member of the 9th global network of independent accounting and tax, audit and consulting firms, bringing together 36 firms, 26 of which are located in metropolitan France, 8 in the francophone countries of Africa and 2 in the French overseas departments, works side-by-side with both SMEs and companies of the CAC 40 on a daily basis.
The member firms are legally and financially independent, but operate under the common brand, according to the values of the network and they comply with regular quality checks.
