Nexia Levitt Kirson has over twenty years’ experience in auditing and we are based in Westville, in the sunny province of KwaZulu-Natal. We audit a wide range of industries in the greater Durban area and beyond, including manufacturing, hospitality, retail, construction, automotive, advertising, financial services and estate agents. We are able to provide a professional and efficient audit with minimum disruption to your operations.
We conduct our audits in accordance with the International Standards on Auditing as required by the South African Institute of Chartered Accountants (SAICA) and Independent Regulatory Body for Auditors (IRBA), ensuring an audit of the highest quality. Furthermore, if required, we assist in the preparation of the Annual Financial Statements in compliance with the International Financial Reporting Standards ensuring accurate financial reporting.
At the end of each audit, clients are provided with a report detailing recommendations for improving efficiency and effectiveness in the internal control structure and operations of their business. Our priority is to help businesses maximise efficiency and profits through sound advice from our professionals.
Should a statutory audit not be required, we conduct either a review or a compilation. A review comprises a detailed analysis of your business and the application of analytical procedures in order to provide limited assurance that material changes to the financial statements are not necessary. As in an audit, should it be required we will assist in the preparation of the Annual Financial Statements. A compilation comprises the preparation of Annual Financial Statements based on the accounting records provided by the client and is the most common and cost effective form of engagement for close corporations and trusts.
Compliance with the Companies and Close Corporations Acts of South Africa requires specialist knowledge and skills.

Xero was built in the cloud, for the cloud and is unlike other accounting systems that were originally built for desktop.

One of our other favourite features is the fantastic support available directly from Xero. Their support website (Xero Central) has free online training courses, helpful support articles and gives you access to Xero’s free 24-hour support by allowing you to log tickets with their support consultants.
