Steven East (Founder of Equity Accounting) – ex SAIPA, MIAC, GTP (S.A), PTP (S.A) & Certified Independent Reviewer.

Steven founded Equity Accounting in 2001 and has since grown the company from a sole practitioner to a multi-faceted Accounting Practice with various divisions to offer its clients a full house of accounting services and products. This was done by establishing strong bonds with his clients, the community, and a commitment to growing staff by offering three-year SAIPA Learnerships.
