In South Africa, PwC employ approximately 4 400 staff and have 23 offices, and brings appropriate local knowledge and experience to bear and use the depth of our resources to provide clients with a professional service, specifically tailored to meet their requirements.

Our clients often tell us that what they value most is our strong global network, which allows us to collaborate across the world and bring knowledge and expertise from one country to the next. On 1 November 2007, our three regions within Africa (Southern Africa, Africa Central and Francophone Africa) began operating as a single, unified PwC Africa Region.


Our Assurance group provides assurance on the financial performance and operations of clients’ businesses, as well as helping clients improve their external financial reporting and adapt to new regulatory requirements such as the King Report on Corporate Governance for South Africa 2002 and International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). While our audit clients include many of the top-performers on the JSE Securities Exchange SA, we are also able to meet the needs of any size organisation, as evidenced by our appointment as auditor to thousands of small and midsize businesses.


Our Tax division uses leading-edge technology and specialist skills to assist clients to comply with tax-related legislation and regulations. Advice covers all aspects of Southern African direct and indirect taxes, exchange control regulations and labour law. Through our extensive network of international offices we also provide current and specialist advice on structuring international business operations and investments.
