ABOUT PART TIME FD

Part Time FD provides a complete financial management solution to SME’s focusing on cloud accounting technologies and traditional attention to detail.

Our experienced Chartered Accountants lead a passionate team of cloud financial management experts able to provide all your outsourced accounting and other business solutions your company needs.

With the speed at which accounting technologies are developing, we are able to support the accounting needs of businesses in most African countries and elsewhere. While we focus on South Africa, our team has worked throughout Africa and we have relationships with accountants and tax specialists in many major African countries.

OUR SERVICES

Accurate bookkeeping is a fundamental base of a successful financial management system. Our bookkeepers have many years of experience and love using the cloud infrastructure we recommend.

We also offer a full range of payroll and PAYE related services including the monthly PAYE submissions to SARS and the bi-annual PAYE reconciliation submissions.

Depending on the clients needs, our team allocated to each client comprises bookkeepers that are managed by our accountants who are either young Chartered Accountants or Professional Accountants ensuring accounting of the highest quality.

CLOUD ACCOUNTING

We specialise in the beautiful cloud accounting application called Xero. Xero is an open ecosystem which means there are hundreds of third party cloud applications that can plug into it.

Cloud applications have changed business operations completely. The always accessible business information together with the ability for multiple applications such as accounting systems, inventory systems and CRM systems all talking to each other makes traditional, locally installed software become a significant business risk.

Client Testimonial

“I love the Xero system and really enjoy the benefit of Receipt banking as well, linking the two is just great. Xero is just so flexible, it makes fixing problems so effortless, cannot wait till I have learnt all the ropes as well. Like I said to you this morning when you showed me how to fix my invoice problem, “ this system is just beautiful, beautiful, beautiful”. I love how you can do these things without any stress or effort!! The backup assistance from you guys is also great.”
– Irene Shelver, Brand Consultant

Timeline

2012
PART TIME FD WAS FOUNDED

The business started by accident when I was looking for something to do in 2012. A friend asked me to help the company out with some difficult accounting problems that they had and then another friend asked me to do the same thing and I started to realise that there may be an opportunity and did a bit of research on the Internet.

2012
ONE OF THE FIRST

At that time there was one other company providing part time financial director services in South Africa although it was quite a significant industry niche in the first world English-speaking countries like the UK, US and Australia

2012
INCORPORATION

I formally incorporated Part Time FD towards the end of 2012 and only relied on word of mouth to find more clients.

2017
MERGER WITH WILLEM HAARHOFF INTERNATIONAL

The business has grown at a good rate ever since and in late 2016 we decided to merge with Willem Haarhoff International as they have more than 10 years of West African experience and will enable us to expand our offering in terms of services offered as well as establish us as a truly pan- African accounting firm able to support businesses throughout Africa.
