  • Do I need to register as a VAT vendor?

    It is mandatory for any business to register for VAT if the income earned in any consecutive twelvemonth period exceeded or is likely to exceed R1 million. Any business may choose to register voluntarily if the income earned, in the past twelve-month period, exceeded R50,000 i.e. voluntary registration. For voluntary registration, it is a requirement that the company keeps accurate accounting records.

  • Do you conduct Audits?

    No. Professional Accountants are not registered Auditors. We conduct independent reviews on financial statements.

    An audit requires an independent auditing team comprised of qualified auditors to review financial statements via various in-depth procedures. These financial statements are comprised of transactions and documents provided by the business undertaking the audit. An audit provides the highest level of assurance, otherwise known as reasonable assurance. It therefore carries higher authority than a review. As an audit requires far more detailed investigation into a business’s financial statements, it is a more expensive option.

  • What is indepedent review and audit?

    An independent review is the latest addition to the Companies Act that provides limited assurance. An accounting professional may review a business’s financial statements via particular enquiries with the aim of simply determining that no financial errors or miscalculations have occurred. This type of financial review requires less rigorous investigation, and the costs inevitably are less than expected for an audit.

  • Can Sikatrix Accountants be trusted?

    While we are aware that there are many unscrupulous businesses out there that don’t deliver what they’ve promised, we are SAIPA accredited and in good standing, our professional body holds us accountable and expects nothing but the best from us.
