Although we are what may be termed “an accounting practice”, our senior team members have a deep understanding of the complex challenges faced when trying to achieve social impact.
Through our corporate partnerships with Nafcoc , CILT’s Women In Logistics and Transport South Africa (WILATSA), and ASBIA (Association for Small Business Incubation Africa) we have access to a diverse database of small businesses, that are BEE Level 1 and 2, women or an youth owned. When you partner with us to make an impact on small business, we work with you to match a business that aligns with your desired values, industry, geographic location and nature of impact.
Our Social Impact Projects
Small business enabler (The Hive).
A percentage of “seats” in our client base is retained deliberately for the provision of professional services (bookkeeping, tax, payroll) to micro and small enterprises that are women and youth owned and lead, at a notional fee. Included in the notional fee, we provide a virtual office with hot-desking, wifi and receptionist services. Our senior management provide business and career coaching to small businesses and the owner or entrepreneur.
You can be a part of this social impact by sponsoring a woman or youth owned micro business to receive quality professional services from skilled and experienced professionals and an office location, away from their business operation, to enable them to work on their business.
Our goal is to facilitate the financial inclusion of women and youth into main-stream African economies thereby bringing about the reduction of unemployment and poverty.Partner With Us
Work experience provider (Diketo)
In partnership with the CGCSA, we host a 12month work experience programme to 10 graduate interns every year from our universities and TVET colleges. We provide exposure to their fields of study, job specific training and an opportunity to positively impact multiple small businesses in our country and on our continent.
Our alumni have subsequently secured full-time employment with Primorial and at various organisations including South African Big4 Banks, Big4 and Mid-tier audit firms, SARS, Department of Agriculture, Department of Infrustructure and financial services call centres.
Small and micro businesses benefit from the skills of graduate interns as these individuals bring with them business skills from their studies. These are skills that many small businesses don’t have, yet need, in their businesses. By sponsoring an intern, you or your business will create a job while bringing much needed skills to small businesses without the added employment cost to the small business.
We work with you to recruit the interns, match them to a small business, administer the intern’s payroll, while ensuring that they get appropriate work experience and training, while simultaneously bringing much needed compliance and record-keeping support to small businesses.Partner With Us
