2.1 Business Advisory

Our service in this area entails the performance of required due diligence, undertaking of valuations of the various kinds that are required by businesses, and the provision of outsourced financial management to ease the pressure of in-house financial management. We are also skilled in using Business Intelligence modelling to facilitate the presentation and use of large amounts of data.

Although statutory financial reporting and tax compliance are both very important basic requirements for any business, we believe that our responsibility as accountants is not only to report on historic financial performance, but also to impact on future performance.

At Aucamp Scholtz Lubbe we are passionate about your business and the unlocked potential that might be hidden within it. We offer a wide range of services, each tailored to the specific needs of the client or the merits of each scenario.

It is our belief that future success is the incremental result of our daily decisions. It is thus our primary aim to provide the necessary tools and support to our clients in order to optimise their decision -making capabilities, no matter what the situation.

2.3 Transaction Advisory

View More
To assist businesses in this area of their activities we offer support and advice in the making of acquisitions, as well as disposals, and provide specialised input into the complex business of restructuring group entities. We are also able to ease the burden of drafting of various legal agreements and documents, by providing skilled assistance in this area.

Compliance with legislation and the paperwork involved is an administrative burden for many. Oral agreements are the norm in many small businesses. Although compliance and the related paperwork are highly important activities in any business, they consume valuable time and resources, which can be used more productively on pursuing actual business objectives.

At Aucamp Scholtz Lubbe we have for some time now been providing a comprehensive, secure and reliable service to clients in a variety of industries, relating to compliance with legislation, drafting or supervising the drafting of agreements, as well as consulting on various matters with regard to legislative queries. This service can definitely benefit your business by reducing the risk associated with non-compliance with legislation as well as the risks associated with oral agreements, so that you may focus on the day-to-day operation of the business.
