Our Vision

As our name suggests, we want to be synonymous with excellent value to our clients and stakeholders.

Our Mission

We go the extra mile for our clients, whether individuals, businesses or entrepreneurs, by looking for ways to improve their financial matters through providing Financial Reporting and Taxation consulting services.

About us

Our history

Pretera Accounting Services (PTY) Ltd (Pretera) was founded by Theo R. Trollip (TRT) and Jacques P. Taljaard (JPT). Both are registered Business Accountants in Practice and carries the designation BAP (SA), and JPT is a registered General Tax Practitioner SA (GTP(SA)). JPT and TRT have a long history of working together, stretching back to their articles.

The founders share interests in various fields, which lead to the founding of Pretera. During 2018 JPT bought TRT’s shares and became the sole shareholder of Pretera.

Our corporate identity

In a world where company liquidations increased 35% year on year for November 2017, we strongly believe the main reason companies go under is lack of financial guidance. The founders of the relevant companies are usually at the top of their game in doing what they do, but running a business financially is not everyone’s cup of tea. And not many start-ups can afford employing someone to do it on a full-time basis.

This is where PRETERA Accounting Services comes in. We journey with the business owner through the various steps, from registering the company, through starting trading all the way to where the client is in a position to continue growing whilst being comfortably. We believe every business/practice has the potential to succeed. And we consider it an honour to help you grow from a small seedling, to a mighty fruit bearing tree.
