Launched in 2000, Business Accounting Network (BAN) is the first accounting franchise in South Africa, servicing the small and medium size business sector.
After 13 years in the accounting profession in one of the top audit firms in South Africa, founder and CEO Monique Sharland realised there was a need for small and medium size businesses to benefit from the services of larger audit firms without having to pay the substantial costs.
By designing the first franchised accounting network in South Africa in 2000, she achieved her goal of helping small and medium businesses thrive with the accounting expertise usually only reserved for large businesses who can afford it.
Our exemplary reputation has been built on professionalism and outstanding levels of personal client service by our highly skilled network of accountants. Our franchisees share one common objective and that is to ensure absolute client satisfaction.
Our aim is NOT to be the biggest accounting franchise in South Africa, but rather the most well-respected and recommended by our satisfied clients. We will continue to bring on board accountants who meet our strict criteria of experience, expertise, ethics and service excellence.
Our goal is to be the preferred go-to accountants in the marketplace who go beyond just accounting, tax and payroll… but as the number one business growth specialists and trusted business advisors to the small and medium business sector.
BAN is neither a corporate entity, partnership or traditional accounting practice. BAN’s unique franchise structure offers major benefits to both clients and franchisees alike with its professional and well-organised network of accountants.
