Virtual Chief Financial Officer

We are a dynamic Virtual CFO service provider, consisting of only Chartered Accountants (S.A.) and Professional Accountants (S.A.). We only employ qualified & experienced Accountants that are registered with either The South African Institute of Chartered Accountants (SAICA) or with The South African Institute of Professional Accountants (SAIPA).

We therefore assign a qualified person to attend to all your requirements. The Founder and managing director of The Virtual CFO, Erasmus Pretorius, is a qualified Chartered Accountant, who qualified in 2005. After more than 17 years in the accounting industry, he still feels very passionate about accounting and finance in all its forms.

We are focused on developing a close proactive partnership with our client. Our range of services will ensure that we are not simply a service provider, but a partnership whose passion and ambition creates added value to you, our client. Ultimately we aim to deliver an unrivaled professional and dedicated personal service, in a cost-effective manner.

We use the latest technology and always strive and stay on top of new changes that affect your business. We pride ourselves with time-effective service, delivered with quality and up-to date standards. We provide continuous training to all our Accountants to ensure that they provide you with the best service that you deserve.

The Virtual CFO takes joy in adding value to your business. We take care of the stressful and time-consuming finance tasks and compliance issues so you can focus on doing what you do best – running your business.


It’s a growing pain that many small businesses have. Company founders and CEOs are rarely equipped to handle financing strategies, budgets and dealing with investors. But bringing on a full time chief financial officer is not cheap. The cost of hiring a full-time CFO can range from R1,500,000 to over R3,000,000 per year plus bonuses and benefits. Our Virtual CFO services provides you with experienced support at a fraction of that cost.

You don’t know where are mistakes as you do not know what to look out for.

You are at the point where you need someone with more experience to not only oversee accounting functions, but really look at our business model.
This responsibility is just too big for you, especially considering the fiduciary duty you have to your shareholders and investors.




Here’s what you get with our Virtual CFO service staff.


The comfort from knowing that a professional is overseeing, protecting and constantly improving the financial side of your business.


Better understanding of the financial side of your business, so you have fewer surprises and more control over the money.


Training and managing your accounting staff. We can be your back office staff, or we can manage your staff for you.
