SBA Benefits

Outsourcing your bookkeeping and accounting functions makes good financial sense. Not only does it provide peace of mind that finances are being properly managed, but there is often no need to employ a bookkeeper. It is like having your own large-firm finance department - but at a fraction of the price!

Accurate and compliant accounts
With SBA you can rest assured that your bookkeeping will be properly managed. The service complies with all regulations and legislation. SBA uses AJS Accounting Software which is recommended by auditors. All Trust and Business accounts are managed, ensuring that your accounting records are accurate.
Improved cash flow
SBA will process all transactions within 24 hours of receiving the information from you, which means that your information will always be up to date. Invoices and statements may be generated on demand, which improves cash flow. As a result, your clients are more likely to pay you timeously. SBA can also offer advice as to how you can improve your collectibles and reduce the never-ending requests for discounts.
First-rate service and support
We regularly receive compliments about the quality and speed of our service and our attitude towards our clients. One of the most valued aspects of our service is the practice management advice we provide.
No need for a bookkeeper
Since SBA performs all of your bookkeeping and accounting functions for you, there is no need to employ a bookkeeper. This not only saves money, but it also provides peace of mind knowing that your finances are in safe hands.

More SBA Benefits

The bookkeeping and accounting service is backed by AJS (a legal accounting software solution) which has been trusted by law firms in South Africa to manage their finances since 1979. Since SBA does not access your bank accounts in any way there is no risk of fraud. Another reason why our clients trust us to manage their accounting is because we employ a number of SAICA-registered accountants to oversee the processing of financial information.
Management Reports on time
A full set of management reports is provided monthly - including a fee-earner report, debtors age analysis, trial balance, income statement, balance sheet, and various other financial and management reports. Management reports are provided within seven working days of your month-end ensuring that you have up-to-date information about the status of your practice enabling you to make informed decisions.
Because your financials will be accurate and up to date, the audit is a much quicker task for your auditors. SBA will handle the audit preparation for you, saving time and money.
As SBA handles all your bookkeeping and accounting processing functions, you can focus on what you do best: growing your practice and practising law.
