Every company and CC is obliged to keep proper records of their financial activities. This is not just a matter of law, it is essential in order for the company to submit its tax returns.

There are plenty of freelance bookkeepers available, they tend to be attractively cheap, because they operate from home with no overheads, but most of them are relatively untrained and operate solo without the backup of a qualified accountant. They tend to produce incorrect accounts and this puts you at prejudice when SARS investigates.

We, on the other hand, are professionals who have been in practice since 1971. Our CEO is a Professional Engineer, Chartered Accountant and Registered Auditor. He can cast his eye over a set of books (just as the SARS computer does) and immediately spot most of the errors that are typically made by less qualified bookkeepers. (See his blog post on this subject).

Harbour and Associates offers a full bookkeeping service at reasonable rates. Because of the high quality of the work there is very little year end accounting necessary prior to the submission of your tax return. Depending on the nature of your business, we can work on a monthly basis, providing you with monthly management accounts or, if there is little activity, we can do the bookkeeping once a year. If you are VAT registered, then the bookkeeping must be done monthly or bi-monthly.
