How can we help

We can increase your cash flow

Considering the vast number of transactions processed by your business every year, we expect our review to identify a material amount of financial leakage and to recover these profits for your business

We improve system and process effectiveness

Once we have completed the review, we provide you with a post-analysis report, detailing the claims identified, explaining how errors occurred and recommending practical steps to address the procedural or system problems that led to the leakage, to prevent it happening in future

We extend the reach of your internal audit

PRS’ services are designed to complement – not replace – your internal audit function. Instead of testing for compliance with policies, we use software and methodologies to analyse data, and systems, and provide a detailed overview from the data

Our Services

VAT benefits review

This efficiency review is a systematic, line-by-line interrogation of transactions to identify errors in capturing the VAT. No data set is too large. Our aim is to secure tangible cash benefits.

Dispute resolution

This service entails an assessment of VAT payments to identify opportunities for penalties and interest levied by the South Africa Revenue Service to be reduced or waived. Once we have identified an opportunity, we will prepare an objection for submission to SARS.

Why request a profit recovery review?

Apart from helping you recover lost profit, our reviews can provide you with the confidence that processes and systems have been improved to ensure compliance.

Certain high-risk factors significantly increase transaction error rates. These include high staff turnover, understaffed finance teams, mergers, and the implementation of new accounting systems.

Millions of transactions

Our experts use PRS’ bespoke software and systems to review millions of transactions

Data challenges
