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.

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 and obtained a Masters degree in Theology.

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 Sanlam staff.

After a period at the SARS Large Business Centre, she decided that it is time to start her own firm to help businesses achieve their goals.
