Christo Theron

By profession, Christo is a qualified chartered accountant with a master’s degree in tax, but he has been a specialist in tax consulting for the last 25 years. For the last 15 years, he has also worked extensively in value-added tax, at one stage being a tax partner in a big four firm.

In the ensuing years, he developed and launched the Unisa Advanced VAT Program on VAT, assisted LexisNexis to reposition their VAT Seminars to be closer aligned with organizational dynamics, and developed South Africa’s first full-fledged VAT e-learning courses.

He joined XA as the firm’s leaders because he believes that his vision has the potential to achieve the above objective with regards to tax and related issues, but with regards to much broader business issues and challenges.
