Ad Valorem Chartered Accountants was founded in 2012 by Esmari Faull, a member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants and the Independent Regulatory Board for Auditors.

Esmari has been a painter, cleaner, dishwasher, waitress, receptionist, and served meals to the homeless. She backpacked alone through the Middle East, Europe and Australia for nearly three years and jumped out of an aeroplane at 10,000 feet.

After she qualified as a chartered accountant, Esmari obtained a post-graduate certificate in advanced taxation. To ensure that both certainties - death and taxes - are considered, she continued studying, obtained a Masters degree in Theology with distinction, and published two academic papers.

Esmari completed her trainee articles at PwC, after which she joined the tax department of PwC. She obtained experience in international tax structuring and auditing the tax charge of listed companies and international groups. Thereafter she joined Sanlam Limited, where she was responsible for tax planning and compliance of the overseas subsidiaries, and for tax advice and training for the staff of Sanlam and its South African subsidiaries.

After a period at the SARS Large Business Centre, she decided that it is time to start her own firm to focus on helping smaller companies and individuals achieve their goals.

Ad Valorem is based in Melkbosstrand, Cape Town. Most of our clients are located in other parts of South Africa and the rest of Africa.
