My role as the financial manager looked somewhat different from that of your typical FM. I was tasked with more special projects and less repetitive finance work. The projects that I undertook are summarised below:

  1. BBBEE rating & management
  2. Implementation of financial controls
  3. Company liquidations
  4. Tax matters (calculations, dispute resolution process, etc.)
  5. Internal group structuring
  6. FICA compliance
  7. Structured trade ongoing management
