OUR HISTORY

The heritage of Accounting and Financial Advisory (AFA) goes back 30 years to the audit and consultancy firm Deloitte & Touche South Africa.

When ongoing regulatory developments both globally and in South Africa regarding auditor independence restricted the non-audit services an external audit firm such as Deloitte could offer, Deloitte South Africa took the decision in 2018 to carve out the financial management advisory business from its core operations. Accordingly, a newly formed 100% black-owned company, Accounting & Financial Advisory (Pty) Ltd, was founded following a management buyout in April 2018.​

With the intention to expand the AFA service offering and footprint, AFA established an office in the Netherlands on 24 July 2019. The new office paves the way for AFA to become an international accounting and finance management firm, serving both South African and European markets.

Our team of experts provide streamlined finance and accounting solutions that can assist your organisation in increasing productivity and driving efficiency in a cost-effective manner.
