We specialize in key audit functions, including Asset Verifications, Forensic Audits and limited assurance engagement such as turnover certificates for rental purposes, as well as Special Purpose Audits. These functions enable the entity to resolve specific management queries and identify key problem areas within organizations.

Our joint network Company, AEC Incorporated performs all audit functions and reports. With extensive audit experience in both the public and private sectors, they are also experienced in the audits of Cooperatives and Non-Profit Organisations.

Their audit services include regulatory or voluntary audits and forensic auditing. As part of the audit process they provide a detailed 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 and efficient operation thereafter.

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, whether you have 5 or 500 staff.

We also provide labour related services such as drafting employment contracts which are compliant with Labour legislation, registration of company employees with the UIF and filing statutory returns with the Department of Labour.
