Most companies offering accounting and auditing services are relatively small in Finland. Traditionally, Finnish clients have valued local service providers but this is changing as electronic services become more prevalent. Major international chains offering auditing services have entered the Finnish market. Both the auditing and management consultancy sectors are highly concentrated in the Helsinki region.
