Our joint network Company, AEC Incorporated performs all audit functions

Cooperatives and Non-Profit Organisations.
Their audit services include regulatory or voluntary audits and

report to management at the end of the audit outlining and explaining
any weakness in internal controls identified during the audit and
recommendations on how to attend to them, resulting in a more secure

An audit is usually more expensive than an independent review. When
permitted by the Companies Act, entities often opt to have an independent
review instead of an audit due to the cost saving. However larger
entities should exercise caution as often an audit is the only external
assurance owners have that their business is being run properly.
Small and Medium businesses do not usually require
a fully-fledged accounting, human resources and payroll division
due to the immense cost. This leaves the business owners having
to do this themselves, taking up valuable time which will end up
costing the company financially in the long term.
At AEC we offer a fully outsourced Payroll function, making it both
a cost and time effective option. From PAYE deductions to calculating
the complex computations of travel allowances and fringe benefits,
we utilise professional payroll software ensuring that your employees
are provided with an accurate payslip at the end of each month,
