Jaspal Sidhu

Founder and Chairman, Southgate Ventures Pte Ltd

With the sudden demise of its Finance Director and inability to find a suitable replacement in short order, Southgate faced a number of challenges when it came to consolidating the financials of the schools and ultimately of the holding company for auditing purposes. 

The task was made even more complicated due to the vast geographical areas of school locations, the need to coordinate with different auditors, accounting required for complex acquisition and intercompany transactions etc.

Southgate engaged S C Mohan PAC’s chartered accountants team to perform the audits on group consolidation and to coordinate with different parties including a visit to the Jakarta auditor’s office to reconcile intercompany balances, to provide advice on loan arrangements, assist on business combination matters with subsidiaries and assist with Group auditor’s queries. The team provided a number of suggestions, met management frequently and followed up on queries closely with various parties to complete the assignment within the management time frame. 

S C Mohan PAC’s team are professional, well qualified accountants with sound knowledge, friendly and supportive at every step of the way.
