Before BDO Jo-Anne worked at an Audit firm in South Africa for 5 years and completed her professional accounting articles at the South African Institute of Professional Accountants (SAIPA) in 2012.She joined BDO from 1 March 2013 where she commenced ICAN/PAAB articles. I completed my Articles in 2017 and completed my BCompt Financial Accounting degree at the University of South Africa (UNISA).
She is currently studying the Advance Diploma in Accounting Sciences, Certificate in the Theory of Accounting (CTA) at the University of South Africa (UNISA) in order to obtain my CA qualification and she would also like to further my expertise in taxation.
Jo-Anne has been in the auditing, accounting and taxation profession since 1 April 2008 and gained experience in a variety of industries over the past 10 years.
In 2015 BDO gave her the opportunity to grow into a more senior role and hence the promotion to SME supervisor and afterwards BSO Assistant Manager in 2017 where I took the accounting department under my wing. Although she is not performing any audits anymore, she dose not regret making the decision to manage the accounting department, enhancing her passion in this industry and working with more clients that we need to keep happy.
