Assurance Services

Even the smallest and gentlest of raindrops ultimately contributes to the larger, greater storm. For this reason, in today's marketplace, both individuals and entities can be held accountable for major events and are subject to the closest scrutiny. Rain assists clients in weathering this storm, providing assurance to clients about financial performance and operations, helping them to improve external financial reporting and adapting to new regulatory requirements.

Tax Advisory & Compliance

Tax is like the weather. Complain all you like, but it's there and there's nothing you can do to change it. You can, however, be prepared - and Rain offers businesses, individuals and organisations the umbrella, the Raincoat, the pair of boots, or all three. Rain assists clients in complying with tax-related legislation and regulations. Our comprehensive array of services includes VAT and PAYE reviews, CGT and estate planning, corporate tax, individual tax, financial planning and international tax advice.

To a sky filled with thunder and streaked with lightning, Rain brings a measure of peace. We offer advice on strategies relating to creating, acquiring or financing a new business; integrating it into current operations; enhancing performance; improving management and control; dealing with crises and restructuring; or realising value.

Corporate Finance

For so many people, in so many places, Rain is associated with delivering blessings. We have an established track record of supporting growing companies and building relationships in all sectors, via an array of corporate advisory services that include writing business plans and strategy development, valuations, due diligence reviews, compliance with JSE listings requirements, finance proposals, mergers and acquisitions, amalgamations and restructurings, privatisation consulting and financial modeling.

Governance, Risk & Ethics Risk Management

Like so much in Africa, contemporary organisations are holistic, organic beings - changing, developing, evolving, transforming. For this reason, Rain recognises the value of risk management and corporate governance in mitigating unnecessary risk. And this is why we specialise in assisting clients with comprehensive internal audits, forensic services, performance audits and due diligence reviews: to align processes and procedures with international best practices and King III recommendations.
