In 1995, at the age of 29 years, Roshan Morar opened the doors to his company, Morar Incorporated Chartered Accountants and Registered Auditors. His vision embraced a single practice in his hometown, Pietermaritzburg, with the idea of perhaps later opening a satellite office in Durban.
Twenty-five years later, Morar Incorporated has expanded nationally with eleven branches and an affiliation with an international network. Today, Morar Incorporated 9 directors, 227 employees and the prospect of taking his brand into southern Africa.
He can also proudly reflect on having more than 30 clients who have walked the journey with him from the time when Morar Incorporated constituted only himself and three employees. More significantly, among those clients are several companies where Morar Incorporated is now servicing the second and even third generation of family-owned enterprises.
At the time of founding the business, it was considered a risk to open an office, in light of the number of established accountancy firms already operating in the city and the natural reluctance among business owners to switch their regular accountants, who performed a critical service to their companies. Yet, his move has paid dividends beyond his initial expectations.
