FAQ

We believe that the key focus of every entrepreneur should be to grow their business. Taking on administrative tasks shifts attention from that core focus. So our advice to entrepreneurs is always to get a trusted accounting partner as soon as they can whether they are able to perform accounting services themselves or not.

Please feel free to read further advice for entrepreneurs on why they should outsource accounting services here.

Monthly accounting services provide substantially more value than having an accountant who provides you with ad-hoc services. Your accountant should be a trusted business advisor who understands your business just as much as you do. If your accountant sees your numbers once a year when they are drafting your Annual Financial Statements, by then it is too late for them to offer you advice that would have made your business more profitable and definitely too late to lower your tax liability for a year that is over.

At The Accounting Village, we offer affordable monthly accounting services packages that are aligned to your business size and requirements. We also believe that monthly accounting actually pays itself as it

  • 1. Saves you time to focus on business growth
  • 2. Provides expert insight and gives you access to regular business profitability advice
  • 3. Gives you peace of mind knowing that your finances are done accurately and timeously
  • 4. Gives you access to tax-saving advice thereby reducing your tax liability
  • 5. You can make more proactive financial decisions from readily available advisors

A monthly accountant will cost you more than other accounting services acquisition methods, but you really do get what you pay for. So if you are geared towards growth, having an expert eye on your financials on a monthly basis is worth the added expense.

A BEE Affidavit is a sworn affidavit applicable to an Exempted Micro Enterprises (EME – turnover below R10 million) and Qualifying Small Enterprises (QSE – turnover between R10 million and R50 million) and black ownership is 51% or more. Once the Bee Affidavit has been stamped by a Commissioner of Oaths, the Bee Affidavit serves as a B-BBEE certificate as no other verification is required.

At The Accounting Village, we strongly believe that no South African small business owner should pay to prove that they are an EME or a QSE, hence we provide this service at no cost for any South African business.

As your business grows, your financial needs and concerns will be completely different than they were previously. Keeping the accountant who is not evolving with your business could prove to be a costly mistake for a growing business. You will know you have outgrown your current accountant if:

  • 1. They can only provide you with bookkeeping services
  • 2. They can’t help you when you need to borrow money or apply for funding
  • 3. They can’t offer advice for your business plan or expansion goals
  • 4. They make mistakes because they do not understand the complexities of your business
  • 5.They are not accessible when you need them

Your accountant should always be your support partner that you get good advice from about any major decision. They should understand your business and should always be ready and available with quality advice that addresses your unique challenges. The right accountant will save you money and set you up for long-term financial success.
