Why We Do What We Do
LIDE Consultants and CAs was founded by a team of chartered accountants that are registered with both the SAICA (South African Institute of Chartered Accountants) and the IRBA (Independent Regulatory Board for Auditors). The company was founded after detailed market research indicated a need for professional personal interaction with SMMEs. Our past experiences within the auditing and management consulting fraternity, coupled with the shortage of skills in the public sector, allowed us to recognise the need for our business. The company is a registered practice in terms of the Auditing Professions Act of 2005 for purposes of signing legal audit reports.
