MaxProf pledge to localisation and enterprise development

MaxProf was honoured to be hosted at the Proudly South African Inaugural Buy Local Summit Localisation Dinner on 28 March 2023, which took place at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg, Gauteng. We presented a video showcasing how MaxProf has contributed to job creation and the upliftment of the economy through our localisation efforts. To learn more about our commitment to ESD and localisation, watch the video here:


MaxProf CEO, Mr Pratish Ramdas, accepted a certificate from South Africa’s Deputy President Mr Paul Mashatile and Minister of Trade, Industry and Competition, Mr Ebrahim Patel. The certificate symbolises MaxProf’s pledge to “growing the economy and creating jobs through localisation”.


Here is our commitment to patriotism:

MaxProf is committed to the highest patriotism through its business endeavours. As a service-based company operating in the financial services space, we aim to fully understand the socio-economic conditions of the environment that we operate in. Our aim, in its most basic form, is to assist municipalities, SOEs and corporates to increase their operating capital to enable them to fulfil their mandates and for the business to operate at the maximum capacity. Since MaxProf’s inception in 2001, we recovered more than R 14 billion for our clients through our Specialised VAT and Tax Optimisation services.

We also aim to give back to the communities that we operate in by investing 1% of our revenue. To date, MaxProf has donated R 5,204,148.00 towards food packages, school uniforms, building refurbishments, and more recently, bursaries and learnerships. Skills shortage is one of the drivers of unemployment and poverty in our communities. By ensuring that the youth are equipped with the tools to be contributing members of society, we are hoping to reduce the severity of these challenges in society.

In 2022, we partnered with our sister company, EST Sourcing, to assist them in any capacity in establishing their CSI footprint across South Africa. We also tasked their organisation with the responsibility of partnering with our clients to source students, distribute bursaries, and partner with local learning facilities to place the learners into their respected programmes.

Through this, MaxProf supports local establishments by hosting and procuring relevant bursary launch material in their communities. In one of our recent partnerships with a municipality in the outskirts of the Free State, the Mayor exclaimed that by offering bursaries to seventeen students in the area, we had helped to keep a TVET college open when they had otherwise considered closing down because of a lack of income.

We also assist local businesses in the hospitality industry by housing our auditors in their establishments during their site visits in the different municipalities in all nine provinces. That is, for the past 10 years, MaxProf has contributed over R 8,500,000.00 to approximately 250 municipalities in South Africa.

MaxProf is committed to localisation, and community and enterprise development in the different touchpoints throughout our business. For MaxProf, it is not enough to only talk about change, but rather to be about change. In the past year, as a relatively small business employing 60 professionals, we have committed ourselves to becoming a B-BBEE Level 1 service provider. We deliberately made changes to our procurement policies, management structures, ownership and earning structures to accurately represent the South African demographic and the changing economic landscape. This intentional change earned us an ISO 9001: 2015 accreditation which we intend on maintaining for at least another 22 years.
