I am a freelance Accountant who scoops up businesses in Northern suburbs of Johannesburg and improve their operations and reduce their tax liablities.

I have reduced tax liablities up to 40% and due to this tax saving it essentially paid for a full year of accounting services - free of charge so to speak!


Due to my efficiency I have also assisted small businesses in successfully obtaining home loans.

Accountants are inundated with queries/audits from SARS and I am proud to say that due to my excellent rating with SARS, I experience minimal request for audits on submissions 


My company, MVD Financial Services (Pty) Ltd was formed in 2003 and have since been working with a great number of SMEs.


Global: Please take note that I am also available to consult abroad as well.
