About us

We are a group of accountants, bookkeepers and tax practitioners who are passionate about helping entrepreneurs achieve their dream!  Who better to guide you through the complexities of starting a company!  We live by the following principles:

Make a difference

Small to medium sized companies employ 60% of the workforce in SA.  This demonstrates the huge contribution smaller companies make to our economy.  We do what we do to help these companies succeed.

Be radically transparent

Transparency about what we charge and what services you get for the given price is always of utmost importance to us.  That way you always know what you need and what it’s going to cost

Make premium the new norm

We try to stand out from the crowd by offering premium services at affordable prices.  We believe the best should be standard!

Accessible and simple

We make our processes and information as accesible as possible.  We try to use plain language so that you know that you’re getting what you need and want.  We’re not fancy, and don’t pretend to be!
