Welcome To KTK Accountants & Advisors

In PNG there are many professional firms that offer non-discretionary business services and are therefore unaffected by cyclical economic trends and often times don’t have any choice in whom to engage as professional services firms. However in most other engagements due to a combination of different factors such as client cost cutting initiatives and lack of quality alternatives there has been a decline in the demand for services clients see as non-essential to business.
Given that back drop, Kuna Taberia Kiruwi Accountants & Advisors has been established to provide that quality alternative for potential clients because the cost of not engaging and partnering with quality Accountant or Advisor in the genesis of any new organization, program or assignment can be costly in the long run.
