Why choose Porter & Gomer?
We have been assisting individuals and companies start their businesses from scratch, to compliance for the last 40 years.
Porter & Gomer made it possible for me to breathe again and removed so much of my financial fears around my lack of tax compliance over many many years
"My greatest fear was that the penalties and fines on my many long outstanding years of tax returns would cost me more, but instead of it costing me money to SARS, you worked tirelessly to get each year’s return submitted and on top of that, I received refunds which were a huge blessing and surprise.
The best part for me was your understanding, willingness to do whatever was required to get the situation resolved and your lack of judgement of my situation.
You have a caring and unwavering focus on your clients’ needs and are relentless in getting them the best outcome for their specific situation or issues. You have strong ethics and integrity that is priceless. Your knowledge of your industry and extensive network makes me, as a client, extremely grateful to have you on my side."
With much love and gratitude
