"We deliver the peace of mind that comes from knowing that experienced professionals are looking after the responsibilities of a company secretary"
The philosophy on which Levitt Kirson is built is to provide management advice and support to entrepreneurs. The value-added services provided to our clients are the hallmark of our operations.
These services include advice on smaller issues to that of structuring purchase and sale agreements to protect clients' interests, providing ongoing tax advice and facilitation of SARS queries and audits. The most important services relate to the provision of relevant financial advice with due consideration to the individual client and his/her family's needs and situations as the primary concern.
Where management consulting requires developing complex systems, the firm uses outside experts to ensure independence is not compromised and clients obtain the best possible advice.
Human Resources and Payroll
Outsourcing payroll and related compliance enables us to concentrate on your core activities. It is difficult for smaller businesses in particular to engage, train and retain suitably skilled staff. The penalties for PAYE failure can be severe wasted management time, employee dissatisfaction and vulnerability to Inland Revenue PAYE inspections.
By engaging us you gain the comfort and reassurance of a professional service.
Our staff are payroll professionals. In-house payroll may only be a part-job for which staff may lack training and support. Payroll outsourcing is relatively inexpensive and good value.
Payroll programs have an initial acquisition cost and ongoing annual update and support subscriptions. Together with the cost of hardware and consumables, the annual cost of your payroll application alone, without any staff input, may exceed the entire cost of outsourcing the payroll.
"We provide a reliable, thorough and comprehensive payroll service."
Estate Administration, Trusts and Liquidations
"We bring unrivaled expertise to matters of utmost importance to clients, their family and their business."
Our aim is to provide a professional, flexible and friendly service responsive to the individual needs of our clients.
Clients welcome our practical yet sensitive approach to their private financial affairs which is why most of our business in this area is either repeat business or comes via recommendations from family or friends of existing clients.
We are experienced in dealing with all aspects of estate administration in a proactive, efficient and sensitive manner. This includes liason with the Master of the High Court and the preparation and submission of all necessary tax forms.
Our taxation experts will alleviate the burden and complexities associated with tax compliance, allowing time for clients to focus their energy on what is most important to growing your business.
We will take care of all your tax compliance needs, including the completion and submission of tax returns, assistance with provisional tax calculations, completion of STC forms, registration for and submission of various taxes including PAYE, SDL, UIF, VAT and Workmen's Compensation. As a result of our experience in dealing with the SARS, Levitt Kirson has the experience to deal with complex issues should they arise. These include objecting to incorrect assessments and attending to any queries from SARS, obtaining tax clearance certificates, and directive applications.
We provide the above range of services to individuals, companies, close corporations, trusts and estates.
