What we do
Burger & Vorster is a one-stop financial services solution to small and medium enterprises. We provide services in auditing, accounting, tax advice and tax compliance, management accounting, payroll and some para-legal services (incorporation of companies and setting up trusts). Our clients are small to medium family-owned businesses in various economic sectors – from medical practitioners, professional engineers, attorneys, estate agents and insurance brokers to small manufacturers, tour operators and project managers.
We strive to add value to our customers, not only by assisting you with statutory compliance, but also with guidance and advice that entrepreneurs need to survive and thrive in a harsh global economy. We are passionate about our clients and we do only not see ourselves as professional services managers, but also as your trusted business adviser.
Corporate social responsibility
Burger & Vorster firmly believes in the concept of corporate social responsibility and that all coporates, no matter how big or small, have some responsibility towards civil society. As a firm we value primary education and therefor a bursary is awarded from time to time to deserving individuals. Currently the firm provides financial support to a high school learner and it is our privilege to be part of the education of this young individual. We also have numerous small events throughout the year to support good causes – from cancer drives to poverty awareness campaigns. This we do while having lots of FUN.
Our vision is to be the ultimate business and accounting solution for all our clients.
