In terms of the JSE Listings Requirements, the external auditor of all listed companies and their major subsidiaries should be accredited with the JSE. Remgro’s external auditor, PricewaterhouseCoopers Inc. is accredited as such with the JSE. The external auditor attends all Audit and Risk Committee meetings and has direct access to the chairman of the Audit and Risk Committee and the Chairman of the Group.
Non-audit services provided by the external auditor are approved by the Audit and Risk Committee and relate mainly to tax matters. These services are effected by a department that is independent of the audit partners.
