WELCOME TO THE TAX SHOP ACCOUNTANTS

Our mission is to make life easier! Through the use of world-class technology, systems, training and communication, we have differentiated ourselves as the professional service provider of choice.

First and largest accounting and tax franchise in South Africa.

Servicing the needs of individuals and all sizes of business.

Operating nationwide across all sectors of business.

OUR HISTORY

We were the first accounting and tax franchise in South Africa. By disrupting the accounting profession, through excellence in everything we do and the applications we use, we have established ourselves as the largest professional services franchise in Southern Africa today.

Operations are currently conducted from our Head Office in Pretoria as well as from all our franchised offices nationwide. Franchise owners are well qualified, knowledgeable, experienced individuals having gained exposure in all sectors of business. Franchisees, together with specialists at Head Office, are well placed to service the needs of individuals and business owners across all types of businesses. While our franchise has traditionally serviced small and medium-sized businesses, we have grown to successfully service large entities too.

OUR VALUES

We pride ourselves on being ethical in the way we conduct business and adhere to a value system with trust, truth, honesty and mutual respect as significant pillars. We have developed an internal Code of Conduct and Values which is aligned to the Code of Professional Conduct published by the South African Institute of Chartered Accountants (consistent in all material aspects with the International Federation of Accountants’ (IFAC) code). The Code of Professional Conduct sets out the ethical and professional attitudes and behaviour expected of accountants.

OUR MARKET

We have successfully niched ourselves slightly below the larger audit firms, but far higher than conventional small accounting practices.

Our offering to our clients is unique in that we provide:

1. An established franchised system with owner-managed and operated practices where the relationship with our clients are valued;

2. Professional services that cover all aspects of the accounting domain as well as professional advisory services not often provided by traditional accountants; and

3. State of the art cloud-based software and apps which have been designed to make life easier.
