LDC was established by Bob Lees in 1991 as RDL Management Services, an accounting and tax practice and over the years has progressed to providing a wide range of financial services for business and individuals. With both Hughie Dittberner and Paddy Crichton each acquiring a third share in this entity. A decision was taken to incorporate a more professional vehicle, a personal liability company “incorporated”, in which to evolve this practice and also to make it more representative, change the name from Bob’s initials to those of Lees, Dittberner and Crichton.
In 2012, Michael Phillips established RDL Chartered Accountants thereby enabling clients to access both auditing and other financial services under the RDL banner.
Many privately owned companies and close corporations are now exempt from a statutory audit and both Michael and Bob are authorised to conduct independent reviews of these entity financial statements (with a significant consequent cost saving to the business owners).
We recognise that businesses are operated to create wealth for their owners and that the function of RDL is to provide owners with a comprehensive financial service that will enhance value to both their business as well as to their personal wealth in compliance with the laws and regulations of South Africa.
Our practice focuses on providing professional financial and business management, accounting, corporate secretarial, estate and income tax services to small and medium sized companies and corporations, partnerships, trusts and estates and sole proprietors.
