The Firm

About

HVM Accountants is a fully fledged, unique audit and accountancy firm that opened its doors in November 2007 with a special focus on training and consultancy.  Over the years HVM has expanded its offering to encompass audits, reviews, accounting services and tax administration as part if its service.  HVM is made up of two directors and multiple staff members. We are uniquely positioned to offer clients benefits based on the Companies Act 2008, which was implemented in 2011.

 

The name HVM was born out of the first names of the founders Herman and Vermeulen and their Dutch partner at the time Maes Incorporated.  This Dutch link enabled HVM to establish a Dutch desk within the Dutch Consulate assisting and serving many Dutch residents living in South Africa.  Services include cross boarder wills, tax planning and payroll administration.  HVM also forms part of a global association called GMN International.
