OUR HISTORY

The heritage of Accounting and Financial Advisory (AFA) goes back 30 years to the audit and consultancy firm Deloitte & Touche South Africa. Ongoing developments regarding improving auditor independence globally and in South Africa, further restricted the non-audit services an external audit firm may render.

The legislation required the separation of audit and financial management consultancy from Deloitte. Accordingly in 2018, Deloitte decided to carve out the AFA service offering in South Africa to the management of AFA in a mutually agreed management buy-out. On 24 July 2019 the AFA Netherlands corporation was established becoming an international accounting and finance management firm with offices based in Amsterdam.

Our expert team working across South Africa and the Netherlands provides streamlined finance and accounting processes that can assist your organisation in increasing productivity and driving efficiency in a cost effective manner.
