Client reviews

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.

Yours sincerely,

Chris Crowther, CEO, Kwikamva Group

I am very happy with the service at Huysamen Westraad. As a small business owner, I’ve always struggled to get my head around accounting reports and requirements, now everything is explained and easily presented.

I would recommend HWI to anyone who is looking for a professional, friendly and informative experience for business as well as personal.

Layla Hassiem, The Pencil Box (Pty) LTD.

Very professional and friendly service.

Thank you for best advice in sensitive decisions with regards to setting up our will and testament. I can highly recommend Huysamen Westraad Inc. People you can trust.

Annique Hammond Botes, Individual Client

Tiaan and his team are professional with strong communication and interpersonal skills. They are knowledgeable in tax and regulatory laws and always available to answer quires. They work well with my financial planners and inhouse financial company systems. Highly recommended.
