Thomas Lunga, a fully qualified Chartered Accountant (SA)

On Friday, the 15th of March, hopeful third year accounting trainees all over the country waited with baited breath for their APC (Assessment of Professional Competent) results.

Thomas Lunga was one of these stressed out souls. By 15:58 he was bouncing off the walls in anticipation. By 16:01 the whole office was rejoicing and celebrating. Thomas had passed his APC, becoming a fully qualified Chartered Accountant (SA).

We sat down with Thomas and asked him a few questions.

1. Why did you choose Veritas to complete your training?
Well!, I chose Veritas because it is a well-reputed audit and accounting firm, dedicated to the provision of superior and quality services to its clients, headed by a team of three partners with an undeniable wealth of experience in providing professional services to a wide range of clients, both in the public and private sector. The firm is also committed to producing well-rounded accountants who possess incredible ability to analyse and interpret business problems and develop dynamic solutions through its stringent training requirements, coaching and exposure to different clients in different industries.

2. What does it mean to you to be a qualified CA(SA)?
Being a qualified CA(SA) to me is a dream come true, a result of hard work, compromise, determination and some sleepless nights and a golden key to a challenging, but exciting career in every sector of business and finance both in South Africa and internationally. The CA(SA) qualification is a prestigious and well recognised accountancy qualification on the global market and qualifies one to work in all fields of business and finance, including, auditing, taxation, financial and general management. Being part of the CA(SA) world is a feeling I cannot fully describe but, all I can say is, it is the best achievement of my life so far.

3. How did Veritas help you to become a CA(SA)?
Veritas did not just help me to become a CA(SA), but to become a better CA(SA) in different ways. To mention a few, the firm has stringent training requirements, a diversified client base which exposes us to different industries and experience, assigns challenging tasks to trainees and offers coaching to develop us professionally to be able to provide dynamic solutions to complicated business problems. This developed me to be a resilient, hardworking, goal-oriented and technically sound professional.

Congratulations to Thomas who passed the APC examination and is now a fully qualified Chartered Accountant (SA). We are very proud of him and wish him every success with his career at Veritas.

Veritas; Ideas (and people) for today and tomorrow.

This woman is always on top of her game. She stays ready to achieve success, so she never has to get ready!

After shadowing (a program we are very proud of) at Veritas in 2018 Andrea Hugo knew Veritas is where she wants to be; “everyone made me feel at home.”

“Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life”, and Jessica von Well stepped with ease through Veritas’ open door (policy).

Mokgadi Mobayi chose Veritas because we are known to have an excellent SAIPA article experience. She wanted to be a part of a team that provides quality work while obtaining the necessary competencies and work experience she needs for the career that she envisions.
