Welcome to our website.
Established in 1989, we aim to build long term relationships with our clients and take our motto - WHERE RELATIONSHIPS COUNT - very seriously.
At Whitfield Fintax we provide more than just collating historical data, compiling financial statements and submitting tax returns. Professional Accountants and Tax Practitioners should not just be bean counters. The world within which we ply our profession has become considerably more complex and exacting, requiring us to service clients with the high-end advice that they need in this more regulated environment. In addition to practicing as Independent Accounting Professionals, Taxation and Personal Estate Planning is an area in which we specialise and we always try and ensure that our clients pay no more than is required by law and remain tax compliant.
Our Directors, professional staff and associates are qualified members of one or more of all the leading professional bodies in Accounting, Tax and Financial Services in South Africa namely the South African Institute of Professional Accountants (SAIPA), the South African Institute of Tax Practitioners (SAIT), the South African Institute of Chartered Accountants (SAICA), The Financial Planning Institute of South Africa (FPI) and the Fiduciary Institute of South Africa (FISA). Our Directors are all registered Tax Practitioners with the South African Revenue Services (SARS) as is required by law and qualified Independent Accounting Professionals (IAP) as defined in the Companies Act. Besides those set by our professional bodies that we follow, our firm also has its own Code of Ethics and Professional Responsibilities and a General Policy Statement regarding Quality Control.
