Our services

InsideSA has developed our service offering to be able to help with business planning and setup in South Africa from start to finish:

Business plans

A business plan is not only an integral part of starting a business, but also makes up a vital part of an application for a South African business visa. Our in-house experts can help you draw up a business plan that will serve your vision, as well as satisfy the regulations and requirements of the Department of Home Affairs and Department of Trade and Industry.

Finding commercial property

Our property experts can help you find the perfect property for your business, whether it’s office, retail or industrial space that is required. Our service is independent and impartial, as we do not stock property or act on behalf of sellers.

Commercial insurance

Insurance is a must when operating a business. In South Africa, various options exist, ranging from basic retail insurance products to liability and indemnity products. The first step is doing a risk assessment of the business, after which our experts will advise you on the best insurance product for your business.

Money transfers

InsideSA offers our clients the very best exchange rates, safe and secure trading, and advice on foreign exchange control and compliance thereof. This makes taking money in or out of South Africa hassle-free for foreign immigrants.

Banking and foreign exchange

Our consultants can assist with all your banking and foreign exchange needs, ranging from opening corporate bank accounts to advising on cash account options and facilitating foreign exchange itself. It’s all done from the comfort of our boardroom too.

Accounting officers and bookkeepers

While InsideSA do not offer in-house accountancy services, we can refer clients to a number of reputable and experienced accountants and bookkeepers.

Tax registrations
