As the fastest-growing large global accounting network, we share your instinct for growth. In 2012 and 2013 we were the fastest-growing large global accounting organisation, so we understand what it means to be a growing company. Your challenges are our challenges.

Following a number of years of bumper growth Grant Thornton South Africa is now firmly established as the undisputed leader in the mid-tier market and the fifth largest auditing, tax, outsourcing and advisory firm in the country. At the end of 2014, The International Accounting Bulletin ranked us as the fastest growing professional services firm in South Africa, with growth of 24% for the second year in a row.

Our approach is built on a genuine interest in our clients – their challenges, growth ambitions and commercial context. Rather than push ready-made solutions, we ask questions and listen. In this way, we get closer to the issues and provide sharper, more meaningful advice for the long-term.

Our ratio of partners to professional staff is distinctive: 1:10 compared to 1:15 among the Big 4. So you receive dedicated attention and straight-talking intelligence from approachable partners with years of experience. We have the courage to challenge you to do what’s right, working with you for your business’s long-term success.
