Our audit approach
We embrace originality, initiative and creativity; and believe in creating solutions that enhance efficiency and effectiveness, without compromising standards. We have developed and continue to improve our own unique audit methodology that provides for an integrated and logical set of standard schedules, checklists, work programs and working papers that facilitate the performance of an audit of financial statements in accordance with International Standards on Auditing.
The group has a wide customer base, including manufacturers (mainly in the steel, foundry, electronics and packaging industries – these include groups with turnovers in excess of R300 million), retailers, property investment, property development and property services companies, companies in the pharmaceutical industry, companies in the engineering and construction industry, attorneys, medical practices, other professional practices, information technology companies, personal services companies, churches, schools, provident funds, etc.
We are committed to implement and uphold the highest professional standards, including equipping our trainee accountants with the necessary skills to operate as professional accountants and auditors. Training is done both on an in-house and external basis. Furthermore, training is enhanced through a system of audit teams reporting to audit managers. Each audit team comprises a balance of experience, taking cognisance of the academic level of each trainee and the number of completed years of the training contract.
