TDM, a division of Thomson Accountants, are the pioneers of tax debt management in South Africa, the first company in the country to offer this important service. Under the leadership of Hedley Grant Thomson, a Master Tax Practitioner and former SARS Auditor with more than 35 years of Accounting and Tax experience, we have yet to find a Tax, VAT or PAYE problem that we cannot solve. Every case receives our full commitment and expertise, no matter how big or how small. And that commitment remains until each case is successfully resolved and our clients are once again able to proudly state that they are compliant with SARS regulations.
Grant founded Thomson Accountants in 2004, and utilises his 35 years of experience to lead the Thomson Accountants / TDM team. Grant is a former Tax Auditor with the SARS JHB Office; his specialised knowledge and expertise have resulted in him being a sought-after speaker, advisor, commentator, and lecturer at numerous institutions.
In addition to Thomson Accountants and SARS, Grant has extensive experience working in the banking, insurance and investment sectors. Grant is a Registered Master Tax Professional (SAIT). He is a highly regarded tax practitioner and holds Postgraduate Studies in Taxation (University of South Africa).
Grant has negotiated numerous High-Profile Tax Cases which are often in the Public Domain. Confidentiality is the order of the day, and effective resolution is paramount.
