DoughGetters the franchise opportunities in South Africa


The accounting profession is being greatly affected by technological strides in recent years and even more so with the advent of 4IR which is changing many of its core functions like compliance and payroll. Accountants are facing mounting pressure to distinguish themselves and provide new value to clients. With more processes being automated and a rise in demand for accounting software solutions, the many benefits of outsourcing accounting functions will continue to gain popularity.

COVID-19 saw many small businesses affected by unexpected legal or labour challenges, and others forced to cut jobs, restructure their businesses or have to secure critical financing. Businesses found themselves in urgent need of trusted advice about what their future holds and how they need to effectively run their businesses. Outsourcing accounting functions has become a viable option as cloud accounting continues to gain momentum as more businesses adopt technology.

The Franchise Association of South Africa is proud to welcome its first accounting franchise – DoughGetters Accounting – a sector in franchising that is prolific in first world countries and will no doubt be gaining momentum in South Africa.

DoughGetters are involved with their clients’ accounting side – whether start-up or multinational entities, where they solve the problems that keep any business owner up at night. To them, it is more than just crunching numbers, it is about relationships and their success is dependent on their clients’ success.

According to Melissa Du Plooy, newly appointed Director and Shareholder, “with the world changing drastically, innovation and adaptation are the ways to go.” “DoughGetters continues to add value to business owners by helping provide deep insights into their business, which in turn enables them to make better and more timely business decisions.”

DoughGetters was awarded Emerging Firm of the Year by Xero South Africa, and the business has grown in leaps and bounds, even during a very challenging lockdown period. .
