Delivering Accounting services with integrity and excellence

About SixDigs Accounting

SixDigs Accounting was started with the aim of of delivering quality accounting and related services to small- and medium-sized businesses. Excellent, professional service should not be the privilege of only large companies. We are based in Johannesburg and serve clients across South Africa.

SixDigs Accounting was founded, in early 2014, by Salim Khan and the company has since grown substantially. Salim is a qualified accountant (AGA (SA)) with ten years of professional experience.

After 18 months of working in the Accommodation Industry Salim started, in 2007, as an Audit Article Clerk at a small firm in Vanderbijlpark. In 2010 he transferred to a Rosebank auditing firm to advance his knowledge and experience. He started working on audits which required quick solutions and finalisations and was soon promoted to Audit Manager in late 2011.

In January 2013 Salim decided to move into the private sector as Financial Manager for a manufacturing company. During this time he had received many requests from previous auditing clients to assist them with books, catch-ups and taxes. This is what prompted him to start SixDigs Accounting in 2014.

The importance of monthly accounting

We often find ourselves having to explain to businesses why it is important to have your accounting records up to date – SME’s in particular. If you have someone who is full-time employed to perform these functions we would say that you are almost getting the full value. You still need to assess the impact, of decisions, on cashflow, VAT & income tax. Staying up to date with the amount of VAT you need to pay and what possible impact your provisional tax will have on cashflow (and whether the business can handle the needed provisional tax) is essential.

So many business are not prepared for their VAT and Income-/Provisional tax payments and this can leave the business with penalties and interest on the respective accounts. Yes, these penalties can ordinarily be cleared quite easily with an objection, but remember that SARS has a “Pay-first-object-later” approach and philosophy. If you are using an independent accountant or bookkeeper; you will need to assess what you are paying for. Does the fee justify the service? Too small a fee is also not always a good indication. An independent accountant has industry-wide exposure and in-depth tax knowledge which is at your disposal.

The value of processing monthly accounts and the reports generated is vital. It is also required by the Companies Act. In addition to this; covers your business by obtaining the service of a registered accountant or bookkeeper. Accountants can be registered with : SAICA; SAIBA & SAIPA (there are other regulatory bodies, but do proper research). Bookkeepers can be registered with ICBA. The importance of having a registered independent bookkeeper/accountant protects your business when you feel that you have been wronged in some way. Registered accountants and bookkeepers are obligated to stay up to date with professional development, law, compliance and taxes.

Salim has been taking care of my accounting since before he founded SixDigs in 2014. A few years later, when my business grew from a Sole Proprietorship to a (PTY) Ltd, he guided me in putting all systems in place for the best possible financial management of my company. SixDigs Accounting is a trustworthy, highly efficient company with a brilliant mind at the helm.

I was fortunate enough to be referred to Salim a number of years ago. He has helped me so much with my personal tax submissions yearly as I am living abroad. He takes care of everything with SARS on my behalf. His service is so efficient and he replies to any questions I have immediately. He is very knowledgeable on all tax issues. A few years ago he very generously helped me with my South African family’s tax which needed to be sorted out. There was a very big problem and Salim managed to come to an agreement with SARS for us. Everyone should be using Six Digs Accounting services! I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them for any tax requirements, big or small.
