Taxation Consulting

PKF VGA makes complex tax issues simple for you.

Tax law, regulation and tax efficiency are complex areas for any business, so at PKF VGA we like to have a straightforward, no-nonsense approach.

By staying abreast of developments and the frequently changing rules, we ensure that you have a clear and full understanding, enabling you to make the right decisions with confidence.

The complexity of tax regimes varies from country to country and the many annual changes in tax law can serve to move international borders farther apart. Expert tax advice is therefore vital if you do business overseas.

International tax is so complex that no one individual could keep track of it. However, by engaging a firm that is a member of the PKF International network, you have access to tax partners all around the world, each of them specialising in their country's tax law and knowledgeable about international tax issues. Many PKF firms also have regional specialists who can provide insight into the political, economic and financial issues in a particular area, as well as being international tax advisers in their own right.

PKF VGA tax advisers work with you to minimise your tax burden legitimately. Taxes, in their various forms, constitute a major business cost, but this can often be reduced or deferred with the help of a PKF VGA. 

For businesses starting up or moving into new countries or regions, we can provide advice on where to set up and how to choose the most appropriate operating structure. PKF VGA advisers will also explain the local laws and regulations to ensure that you are compliant.

Business Risks Services

An effective risk management strategy never slows down an organisation - it makes it go faster. Regulatory requirements continue to grow. It is not just government regulation, but stakeholder and public and investor expectation as to governance and compliance. We can help you navigate through the challenges surrounding governance, risk and compliance.

New organisational risks are continuously emerging across strategic, regulatory, financial and operational business processes. There are any number of risks in today's complex business environment, but the principal challenge lies in identifying the major risks by focusing systems on organisation objectives and determining the risk of potential deviation from these objectives. Once key risks are identified, an effective risk management strategy will provide oversight that provides management with effective controls and processes to eliminate or mitigate these.

The cornerstone of risk identification, assessment and management is a sound control system, which should promote organisational objectives of reliable reporting, safeguarding of assets, compliance with laws and regulations, and efficiency of operations.

The starting block lies in helping organisations answer some key questions, such as:

  • What are your key objectives and what are the risks to achieving these?
  • What are your key risks and how they are being managed?
  • Do you have overlapping risk functions or gaps in coverage?
  • What processes do you have in place to isolate key risks as they arise?
  • What is the overall level of sophistication of your financial systems?

A rapid assessment of these questions allows us to integrate and improve risk controls.

Here are some elementary symptoms of governance fatigue: Immature risk management processes results in boards not focusing on key issues or spending too much time on non-core issues; Ineffective corporate governance results in the incorrect balance between executive and non-executive directors, with key business challenges therefore never seeing the light of day; Inadequate controls and systems may result in wasted investment in new systems which fail to deliver the expected results.

In assessing the controls within an organisation, we look at:

  • The overall control environment, including key business intelligence systems;
  • Any significant deficiencies in accounting systems or personnel and how best to implement improvements;
  • Processes to test the integrity of new or revised systems;
  • Material deficiencies detected by external auditors, and the design of a corrective timetable.

BEE Empowerment Services

There are many reasons for a company to become B-BBEE certified, some obvious, some more subtle. For a start, big businesses and state-owned enterprises are required to support businesses which are B-BBEE certified and if you aren’t certified, you aren’t even on their radar. By getting certified, not only will you reap the benefits, but your customers will as well. In this competitive environment, everyone is looking for an advantage and you don’t want to miss out on a tender or opportunity simply because your certification is not in place.

At PKF VGA, we can guide you through the numerous benefits and the process of getting your B-BBEE verification certificate. We’re able to offer you the advice you need in order to make up those precious points on your rating and we’re fully accredited with the necessary regulatory bodies to be able to provide you with accreditation services. And if you’re our client, there’s no need to collate tons of company registration documents in order to get your accreditation done. We keep your documents in-house and can refer to these during the rating process, making things a lot simpler for you.

We bring the required skills, experience and capacity to outsourcing clients' internal audit function.

Co-sourcing is when we assist with in-house internal audit functions in the execution of their internal audit plans.

Quality Assessment Reviews: in our quality assessment process, we perform a comprehensive review of the overall effectiveness of a client's internal audit function. This would typically include:

  • Compliance with professional standards;
