How to select a Durban accountant?

December 16, 2016

Dirmeik Consulting has recently expanded into KwaZulu-Natal and we wanted to offer advice for businesses looking for an accounting firm or tax consultant in the greater Durban area.

 

 

Accounting companies in Durban

When looking for an accounting firm, it is human nature to first see if someone in your business circle can refer or make a recommendation for an accounting company they have personally used. This is usually good in terms of finding a contact that is reliable, but is it the best method for your business?

Nothing replaces good research and despite any time restraints you may have, the internet will allow you to put together a shortlist of accounting companies that could likely far exceed your expectations (and likely anyone in your business circle) of what an accounting firm can offer and deliver.

List of accounting firms in Durban

Selecting an accounting firm to handle the tax responsibilities of your business is a big decision and no single online list should be relied upon to find an accounting firm that is right for your business.

It is highly recommend that you shortlist accounting firms that have experience in the specific sector that your business operates in. It is important for an accounting firm to understand your business, not only to correctly manage your tax responsibilities but also impart valuable knowledge and guidance on how to effectively structure and run your business, relative to the unique opportunities and challenges that your business may face.

When creating your shortlist, don’t necessarily look for accountants on your doorstep but rather find accountants with the relevant experience. Remember, nowadays most of the dealings with your accountant will be over electronic channels. Even face to face meetings can be done through video conferencing. This means that you are able to widen your search to find the accounting firm that best suits the needs of your business.

Small accounting firms in Durban

Business owners often look to small accounting firms for more personalised service and attention. The downside to this is that often these accounting firms cannot support the requirements of a medium to large organisation and so, by finding a firm that can support your requirements, this results in a trade-off where you lose that important personal attention.

At Dirmeik Consulting, we have structured our businesses in a way that we are able to support the requirements of small to large organisations while ensuring that you receive the personal attention that you and your business deserve.

Dirmeik Consulting offers small, medium and large businesses a comprehensive range of services, from accounting and taxation to business administration, payroll, independent reviews, fact-finding, company secretarial and advisory services. Each of these is provided with inimitable openness and meticulous attention to detail.

We are registered with and strictly adhere to the code of conduct set out by the South African Institute of Professional Accountants.

We service businesses across a wide range of industries and invite you to reach out to discover the value we can add to your business.
