Our vision and mission
Helping companies grow, save money while keeping them safe
Thryv was founded to be a trusted accounting partner and a valuable business partner for businesses to help them grow. The founder, Arnaud Brunel, identified an opportunity in the accounting industry as, despite having accountants, business owners were still involved in many aspects of their company’s accounting.
He designed an offer and processes that take away all the workload and stress from their clients. Thryv does all the follow-ups, filings, and reporting and allows business owners to focus entirely on their business.
Our mission is to create an environment, for business owners, in which their business can ‘thryv’ without any of the accounting and compliance hassles. Thryv also provides analytics and consultancy to help their clients manage their finances for better growth.
With a deep understanding of the local financial landscape and a commitment to excellence, our firm stands ready to provide comprehensive financial services tailored to the unique needs of your business.

Chartered accountants in South Africa.
Chartered Accountants (CAs) in South Africa play a vital role in the country’s economic development.
Our CAs are financial professionals who have undergone rigorous training, passed the qualifying examinations, and have gained practical experience to obtain the prestigious CA designation. The South African Institute of Chartered Accountants (SAICA) is the professional body responsible for regulating and guiding CAs in the country.
The role of Thryv’s CAs extends far beyond traditional accounting and auditing services. They are strategic advisors and business partners, contributing significantly to decision-making processes in both the public and private sectors.
Their expertise in financial management, taxation, and compliance is crucial for the growth and sustainability of businesses in South Africa.
The advantages of hiring chartered accountants for South African SMEs
Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) are the backbone of South Africa’s economy, driving innovation, job creation, and economic growth.
As SMEs navigate the challenges of a competitive business environment, financial management becomes a critical aspect of their success.
Hiring Chartered Accountants (CAs) offers SMEs a distinct advantage in achieving financial stability and long-term sustainability.
Expert financial guidance
Chartered Accountants are extensively trained professionals with a deep understanding of financial principles and practices. Their expertise goes beyond basic bookkeeping – they possess in-depth knowledge of financial analysis, risk management, and strategic planning.
With CAs on your team, SMEs gain access to expert financial guidance that helps them make informed decisions, minimise risks, and identify growth opportunities.
Compliance and tax efficiency
Navigating the complex world of tax regulations and financial reporting can be daunting for SMEs. Chartered Accountants in South Africa are well-versed in local tax laws and compliance requirements.
They can ensure that SMEs meet their tax obligations efficiently while optimising tax planning to minimise liabilities. Our CAs can handle compliance matters and allows you, business owners, to focus on core operations and growth strategies.
Sound financial management
Financial mismanagement is a significant factor contributing to the failure of many SMEs. Chartered Accountants play a crucial role in establishing robust financial management systems.
From budgeting and cash flow forecasting to monitoring key performance indicators (KPI’s), Thryv’s CAs help SMEs maintain a healthy financial position and make necessary adjustments on time.
Risk assessment and mitigation
Every business faces inherent risks, and SMEs are no exception. Chartered Accountants possess the skills to identify potential risks and evaluate their impact on the business.
By conducting risk assessments, we can help SMEs develop risk mitigation strategies, ensuring the business is well-prepared to handle unexpected challenges.
Financial reporting and analysis
Timely and accurate financial reporting is essential for SMEs to gauge their performance and make informed decisions.
Our chartered Accountants prepare comprehensive financial statements and analyse them to provide valuable insights into the business’s financial health. This information enables SME owners to identify areas for improvement, capitalise on strengths, and address weaknesses.
Access to funding and investment opportunities
When seeking funding or investment opportunities, SMEs with professional financial management are more likely to attract potential investors.
Thryv’s Chartered Accountants can present financial data in a clear and organised manner, increasing the credibility of the business and improving its chances of securing financing.
Business expansion and mergers
As SMEs grow, they may consider expanding their operations or engaging in mergers and acquisitions. Our chartered Accountants are well-equipped to guide SMEs through these complex processes, conducting due diligence, assessing financial viability, and assisting with post-merger integration.
