With the expansion of operations into African markets comes the demand for more rigorous management of one’s tax affairs. Tax Consulting Africa offers a multi-faceted service line in dealing with all aspects of international tax compliance and tax-related law, including company setup, correct and compliant work permit solutions, accounting, tax planning and legal services. This integrated service suite is made possible by more than 80 professions in a firm that has existed for over 14 years.
Our team includes members from a diverse personal background, including admitted tax attorneys, chartered accountants, professional accountants, immigration experts, CFP®’s, expatriate planning and compliance specialists. The individual team members are mostly heritage Big 4 (previously Big 5), articled at prominent law firms or otherwise worked in specialist positions at large multi-nationals including previous SARS, Department of Home Affairs and niche capacities. The diversity and strength of our team is key to our market positioning and during a singular client consultation, we often call in specialists to address bespoke or technical items, as they arise, which may impact our client’s requirements. We cover all Africa business languages including Chinese, French, Portuguese.
They are supported by leading African independent attorney and chartered accountant practices, who are all considered best in location. This is a key differentiator from ourselves compared to the traditional large firm consultancies, where we are not tied to use a specific provider in location regardless of competence. We use best in market advice and that includes large firm sign-off in certain locations where there are no specialists. We make available our Africa partners on request and whilst the primary design is performed at Tax Consulting level, using international tax principles; the local advisory sign-off is important for a holistic solution and taking into cognisance local practices.
