Baker Tilly Greenwoods is one of the oldest and largest independent auditing, accounting and advisory firms in Cape Town. As an independent member firm of Baker Tilly International, we operate within South Africa with associated independent member firms in Johannesburg and Durban.

Integrity, trust and commitment are core values of our firm and have been key features in our ongoing growth and success.

At Baker Tilly Greenwoods we pride ourselves on delivering an efficient, integrated and top quality service to all of our clients. We also believe in being accessible and providing a personal commitment which goes above and beyond expectations. We tailor-make solutions to address specific, individual needs, and our clients’ business and peace of mind are our number one priorities.

Baker Tilly Greenwoods is a JSE accredited firm.

Our History

Baker Tilly Greenwoods was established in 1940 by Professor Herb Greenwood, Dean of the Faculty of Commerce at the University of Cape Town and founder of the University’s Business School. Over the years we have grown and developed, and we are proud to offer our clients a wide range of services coupled with the kind of expertise which is based on decades of experience.

Baker Tilly Greenwoods has nine partners and approximately 200 professional and support staff. In 2013 a decision was made to strengthen local and international ties with Baker Tilly International by re-branding and changing our name to Baker Tilly Greenwoods. This is currently the world’s 8th largest accountancy and business advisory network by combined fee income of its independent members.

The move brought about new opportunities, but our identity and values remain unchanged, and our focus continues to be on upholding our reputation for excellence.
