Twenty one years ago, at the age of 29, managing director Roshan Morar, left an established accountancy firm – Gouws and Strauss – to set up his own practice, working out of a small office in Church Street, Pietermaritzburg. At the time, the move was considered a risky one, given the number of established accountancy firms already in the city, and the natural reluctance of business owners to switch accountants who perform what is regarded as “a critical service”. Out of this calculated risk, Morar Incorporated Chartered Accountants was established. Today, the firm has branches in all major provinces. It pursues a service-driven, quality-oriented ethos with a strong emphasis on personal relationships. The firm is owned in majority by historically-disadvantaged individuals.
In the case of Morar Incorporated, the contribution of our clients to the success of the firm has been critical. A personalised approach to our work has been a consistent hallmark of the practice and our emphasis on building personal relationships continues today in our belief that, “no client is too small.” From the start the firm geared itself towards black-owned businesses, many of which were small and medium-sized family owned businesses. Today, these businesses remain an important focus of our auditing and tax services work.
