What We Believe

At Vitalis Accounting we believe an Accountant is the one partner in your business you should not be seeing only once a year.

An unfortunate reality is that it happens too often where an accountant only sees their clients once a year. This annual appointment normally occurs when the financial statements need to be signed off. Sometimes it also happens that this is the day you receive a hefty invoice which is due immediately. Not cool!

It is this frustration that led to the creation of Vitalis Accounting. Ernst and Tiaan created Vitalis Accounting because they want to be known as the accountants who build a business and not as the accountants who you only see once a year.

Building Your Finances

As qualified accountants, we decided to dedicate our time to studying the principles of finance and knowing which numbers to look at within your business. Sure, you can search or ask anyone, even us, for these numbers you need to look at, but we have spent our lives knowing how to interpret those numbers as well.

Similar to your skills as an entrepreneur, we know which numbers are important for your business and which aren’t. We know which ones to inspect and where to focus your attention so that you can grow your business. This is why an accountant is your most important business partner.

We designed our bookkeeping, accounting and taxation services to ensure that you stay legal within the rules of South Africa. Further to this, we also wish to ensure that these services add immense value to your business. We don’t just want to make sure you don’t break the law. We also want to make sure you build and grow your business.

Why We Have This Belief

Why is your accountant your most important business partner? Well, we believe the answer to this question is fairly simple. Each entrepreneur is a specialist in their own right.

As a plumber, you know where to look to stop a water leak and save precious water from being wasted. A retail shop owner understands the importance of providing quality food at a great price and convenience. As a manufacturer of products, you understand better than most how important it is to keep your costs low.

And so, we are able to mention one important aspect in every industry in the marketplace.

Our approach

We want to meet with you at least once a month to go through the financial achievements of your business for the previous month. By doing this, we can ensure that you are up to date with what is happening with your profits and cash flow.

We are then also able to give you timely advice should you need to make adjustments to your strategy. The best of all is that this advice is not given 12 months later, but is given every month as you progress.

We do not believe in offering you a package which does not satisfy your financial needs. There’s a multitude of accountants in the market with hundreds of different packages. We focus on what you need within your business, and not how we want you to pay for these packages. Our packages are priced according to the accounting and taxation regulations each business in South Africa must implement.
