Company History


Gerard Mac Lachlan completed his articles in 1984 at Brink Roos & Du Toit, one of the auditing firms currently incorporated in Price Waterhouse. He then passed his B Compt (Hons) degree in 1985 and then qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 1986. Gerard started working as a Senior Income Tax Inspector at Inland Revenue in Cape Town in 1989 and worked there for 2 years until 1991. He then returned to Price Waterhouse for another year as a Senior Audit Manager. In 1992, he was offered a position as financial manager at Pathcare, a group of approximately 50 pathologists country wide.

He was in their employment until 1994, after which he started his own practice working from home, until 1996, when the practice moved to official offices. In 1996 he registered the practice as an Accountant and Audit practice at the Public Accountants and Auditors Board, and has been practising as such ever since. The practice has consequently grown at a constant rate and has established a strong client base since then.
