We evaluate an organization’s tax returns and underlying records whether they meet the legal requirement. The primary purpose of a tax audit is to give the regulatory body reasonable assurance that the tax returns are exact and absolute, and that the correct amount of taxes have been declared and paid.
It involves ascertaining the accuracy of the returns filed by examining:
- The financial statements and the books of account.
- The supporting documentation.
- Advising clients on matters that specifically impact their tax situations
- Evaluating the effects of tax law changes and clearly communicating these to our clients
- Assessing the tax implications of proposed transactions and providing solutions

Value Added Tax
VAT is a tax applied on the value added to goods and services at each stage in the production and distribution chain. It forms part of the final price the consumer pays for goods or services.
Value Added Tax (VAT) is a tax which impacts on all aspects of business life. As a transaction based tax, businesses need to factor in the impact VAT will have on prospective business plans to ensure that there are no unexpected turn out of events. VAT allows the offset of input tax against the output tax due, these other indirect taxes are an additional cost of sales for clients, impacting directly on profit margins.
