One of the many benefits that comes with the designation, and working with QuickBooks, is that it allows her to provide a more professional service to her clients. Being part of the SAIBA family has helped her grow personally and professionally.
Awonke Dyantyi BAP(SA)
Obtaining her BAP designation plus the licence to practice non-assurance engagements is one of the highlights of Awonke’s year. This has encouraged her to build confidence in her businesses and her clients have confidence in her. Awonke finds the SAIBA newsletters very helpful. They help her make quick decisions that help her make more money. There are also many other benefits such as getting insurance and legal advice. Next on the list is the license to practice Immigration Law, I know obtaining this license will not be easy but it will be worth it.
