Scherfin Accounting & Payroll Services (Pty) Ltd has been my passion since 2017, when I started full-time.

I’m a born and bred Pretoria girl. Blessed as mom of two little people, Amy and Grayson.

My husband is a SAIPA registered accountant and Tax Practitioner, and I come from a family of accountants, so I guess this is where my career was stemmed from.

I am not your typical accounting/bookkeeping stereo type…I am in fact a very out-going, social and love being surrounded by people. I think my favorite part of my job is interacting with my clients. Luckily I’m an admin freak and great at my job so at least my talents are diverse.

With 15 years of accounting, bookkeeping and payroll experience, I decided to start my own practice in 2017. It has been incredible. We bought a small practice as a start and it has just grown from there. I am one of the few people who can say they were blessed during Covid as my business suddenly boomed!!

With my husband’s assistance, as the tax practitioner and SAIPA registered accountant, I can assist my clients with bookkeeper rates, with the advantage of his assistance. For myself and my clients, this is a win-win scenario.

My aim is to assist my clients by educating them, by relaying accurate reporting and by helping them grow their business in any way that I can.

If you are looking for a hands on approach to your finances then Scherfin is waiting for your call!!
