Corporate Secretarial Services in South Africa

Responding to increasing stakeholder pressure for enhanced and demonstrable corporate governance procedures and controls is a priority for businesses all over the world – whether you operate purely locally, or across international borders. But it’s not just stakeholders; the compliance burden is a reputational risk, too. Regulators are getting tougher, fines are getting bigger and prosecutions are increasing. The strategic threat of non-compliance is more pronounced. It’s imperative that businesses pay careful attention to compliance – to do it better and more efficiently. 

TMF South Africa creates these efficiencies when dealing with a wide range of corporate governance issues. There has been a growing focus on the South African corporate governance regime which has widespread implications for companies. Company directors are increasingly placing best practice corporate governance at the top of their agenda and businesses are heavily resourcing their corporate governance teams. Our services include, but are not limited to:

  • Corporate governance for listed companies, multinationals, NGOs and corporate trusts
  • Monitoring and guidance with regard to King IV
  • One-off reviews to check for compliance with King IV
