Our Services

All companies are required to have annual financial statements 6 months after their year ends. We prepare financial statements either in preparation for audits, thereby making audits faster.

The Companies Act 71 of 2008 requires audits to be done when the public interest score for profit company exceeds 350 points or the company prefers a voluntary audit. We also perform Independent reviews for companies with PIS of below 100 points.

Garikayi Mutongoreya is a registered practising accountant and can perform Annual reviews of companies with less that 100 points (Public interest score). He completed is auditing clerkship in South Africa and have been involved in a number of audit engagements as the audit senior various companies in South Africa..Most CC's, Pty's, Trusts, NPC's and NPO in South Africa are below 100 points

( based on turnover, number of employees and debt).


In such cases, audits are no longer a statutory requirement. Annual reviews have replaced these audits.With reviews, companies can still access finance from bank depending on the amount required. NPO's and NPC's can still get funding from donors depending on the funding or donation contract.

We prepare your monthly, quarterly and annual management accounts. We do not end there but our emphasis is on management and compliance. We assist in setting up annual budgets, 3 year rolling plans and 5 year strategic plans.
