It is with great pleasure that I can attest to my experience and dealings with HWI over a period of 17 years now.
The audit expense on the income statement is often seen as a ''grudge purchase'', but I have realized that there is far more to just receiving an unqualified report in the financials:
My relationship with the practice, initially through Derek Huysamen and in later years with Gilbert Westraad and Tiaan Hoon, has been enlightening indeed - they have taken up an integral role in guiding us through tax and business compliance issues, financial planning matters such as mergers and acquisitions, shareholder concerns and many more. We regard them as a strategic partner in our business and we have derived real benefit from their input over time. Most profound is the fact that they truly understand the nature of our business and operations, as well as the culture that lies within - hence their ability to add real value to our stakeholders. Owners, managers and staff are always treated with courtesy and professionalism.
As far as the audit function is concerned, HWI have always gone out of their way to accommodate our time-frames, through meticulous planning, attention to detail and ensuring that audit staff are well trained and appropriately suited to their tasks. With their help I am pleased to say that the annual audits have been performed seamlessly, efficiently and with due care and diligence.
I would not hesitate to recommend the HWI firm to any individual or business.
