“I met Ignus 10 years ago when my accounting practice joined the Lumenrock Group as their Kwa-Zulu Natal representative. His professionalism, confidence, serenity and knowledge impressed me from the very beginning. Ignus and I served together on the Board and it was there that his invaluable contribution to the company’s values system and culture became evident to me. That, combined with his technical knowledge and market wisdom, mean that Ignus is a partner that you want on your team. As both our professional paths moved away from Lumenrock, Ignus and I continued to consult with each other and his practice, Kempen Group, has become a vital support system to PLUS Executive in the ever-changing legislative and reporting compliance environment.”

”I appointed Kempen Group to deal with filing accounts (AFS & tax returns), VAT returns, payroll and secretarial services for the South African based subsidiary of our UK registered company, Research Research Ltd., in mid. 2016. With Finance functions centralised at our London head office, I was keen to find a comprehensive, authoritative, local service that I could rely on. And, I certainly found it with Ignus & Lizzie who, from day one, have been professional, efficient, responsive, and very easy to deal & communicate with. I have no hesitation in recommending them.”


“I am really impressed with the Receiptbank and Xero programs. The cloud-based, paperless systems are straightforward and user friendly. I love the Dashboard functionality in Xero as well as being able to attach supporting documents to financial data. I will be saving a lot of time and there will no longer be files and files of paperwork. Making the switch from old, outdated software was smooth and simple ? Thanks Ignus and team at Kempen Compliance!”
