GBG A PROFESSIONAL ACCOUNTING SERVICES

GBG is a professional and independent Eastern Cape-based accounting firm with over 5000 satisfied clients spread throughout South Africa.

The firm opened its doors in  1904 as Phillips Brothers. In 1928 the firm was taken over by a Queenstown firm and was subsequently renamed, Sampson, Ryder and Co. Sampson Ryder and Co was later taken over by Mr Charteris and in 1951 Mr Charteris invited Mr Martin Le Roux of Cape Town to partner him in the Cradock practice, renaming the Cradock practice Charteris and Le Roux.  Mr Martin Le Roux eventually bought out Mr Charteris. In 1965 Mr Le Roux expanded the firm with the opening of the Somerset East office where Mr Ben Erasmus was appointed as the first manager.

In 1982 Mr Martin Le Roux retired and sold the practice to Messrs. Philip Gerber, John Harrington and Rudolph Botha.  The new practice was merged with the existing practice of Mr John Harrington and it was rebranded as Gerber, Harrington and Botha to reflect the names of the new owners.  Rudolph Botha headed the Somerset East office while Philip Gerber and John Harrington were in charge of the Cradock office.  In 1986 Mr John Harrington sold his share of the practice and Mr Herman Gerryts was admitted as a partner.

In June 1988 Mr Herman Gerryts left the practice whilst Mr David Gowar took his place. The firm’s name had to be changed again when Mr Gowar was made partner.  On 1 March 1989, the firm was named Gerber Botha and Gowar.

Over the next 27 years, the firm expanded and increased its presence in the Eastern Cape. The Graaff Reinet office was purchased in 1991 from Smit Flok and Co. and was first managed by Charl De Villiers.   In 1998 Mrs Ralie Blignaut was appointed as a new partner and she is currently still managing the Graaff Reinet office. Due to growth, Mr. Tertius Van Der Walt was made a partner in the Cradock office in 2004.   The Somerset East office also necessitated the addition of a new partner and in 2010  Mr Lafras Moolman was made partner. In 2015 Ronette Marais also joined the Somerset East office as a partner.  The Middelburg office established after the purchase of the firm Theron Du Plessis in October 2010 and was managed by Mrs Marieke Le Roux who also became a partner.  The next expansion came in January 2014 when Mr Francois Calitz opened the Kirkwood office
