Our History

PKF Octagon (Johannesburg):

With a legacy dating back over 50 years, PKF Octagon is a house-hold name in Jozi.

The Firm was founded as Herbert and Trakman in 1965 and later rebranded to Octagon in 1997. The same year saw the 8 existing partners acquire our ‘21 On Scott’ land and build the first commercial property on the street - the new home of Octagon. Our firm became synonymous with personalised service and we attracted long-standing clients and exceptional employees.

We became a member of PKF SA and PKF International in 2017, which enabled us to offer globally relevant advice grounded with local insight.
