Officially launched in March 2000, Business Accounting Network (BAN) is the first unique accounting franchise of its kind in South Africa. BAN is a network of professional accountants, chartered accountants, and qualified bookkeepers based in the Cape, Johannesburg, Pretoria, Free State, Durban, and the Garden Route.
We ensure that our small and medium business clients are financially up to date, their wealth is properly managed, and that they are 100% compliant, giving business owners what they need to run what they do well.
Business Accounting Network (BAN) is a network of professional accountants, chartered accountants, qualified bookkeepers, and business tax and advisory consultants located all over South Africa, in a unique franchised structure, including Cape Town, Johannesburg, Pretoria, northern Free State, Durban, Stellenbosch, Paarl and the Garden Route.
Our mission is to provide financial information and guidance to our clients so that they can strengthen the value of their business as well as their financial muscle by creating effective financial and cash flow plans and providing performance measurements so that they have the financial information to run what they do best.
Why Choose Us?
BAN’s reputation has been built on professionalism, big firm expertise at small firm rates, and outstanding levels of personal client service. BAN franchisees share one common objective and that is to ensure absolute client satisfaction.
BAN is neither a corporate entity, partnership, or traditional accounting practice. BAN’s unique concept offers major benefits to both clients and franchisees alike in terms of its professional and well organised structure.
OUR IDEAL CLIENTS ARE THOSE WHO:
Are small and medium businesses.
Recognise that the real value of outsourcing accounting reduces costs.
Realise that they need to stick to what they know and save valuable time to focus on their actual business doing what they do well.
Knowing that one way to stay focused on business growth is to outsource accounting.
Our SME business owners looking to move from relatively basic transactional processes, such as bookkeeping to more strategic functions, like budgets and forecasts, cash flow projections, performance measurement, and business analysis, which are high-level functions, to grow their business into an asset of value?
Understand that outsourcing accountants provide better visibility into a company’s financial operations and better control.
Do not have the need for a full or part-time bookkeeper or accountant.
Entrepreneurs that are in the start-up phase of business and who have a strong aptitude to be successful and who want to do things right the first time.
Are owner-managed businesses that are aware and understand that the cost related to accounting, financial management, tax, and other regulatory compliance is critical to the survival of their business, and who see this cost as an “investment” rather than as “unproductive”.
Are preferably businesses with a turnover in excess of R1 million per annum.
Together with BAN’s working relationship with various top registered accounting and audit firms, BAN franchisees, by specialising in specific areas of accounting practice, collectively network a broad range of skills. They thus provide a highly experienced, professional, and personal service to small and medium businesses at cost-effective rates.
