FNB has collaborated with Xero and Edge Growth to deliver the first of its kind development initiative aimed at supporting and empowering black-owned accounting practices that service the SME market.

Transforming the performance of these black-owned accounting practices is set to not only improve the quality of accounting services provided to SMEs but it will drive the sustainability of South Africa’s SME market - ultimately promoting the country’s economic growth.


Key to realising this vision, the programme is underpinned by a set of essential objectives:

  1. Digital Presence Transformation:

    Promote the digital transformation of black-owned accounting practices by leveraging Xero’s (i) cloud-based practice management and Partner Programme (ii) tools and (iii) resources.

  2. Optimising Quality of Service:

    Facilitate the improvement of the quality of accounting advisory and compliance services.

  3. Enhancing Practice Management Skills:

    Empower black accounting practice owners with holistic, practical business practice management skills for current and future operational continuity.
