Business Doctor

HELP!! Something’s just not right!! As a business owner, you know when something is amiss. You doing all the right things but the bottom line is saying otherwise… With over 16 years’ experience and our holistic approach to business regarding operations, finance, accounting, business, risk, audit and controls we are perfectly suited to provide you with an assessment of your company’s health from various aspects. Not only that, we will offer solutions for improvement and assist in the monitoring and evaluation thereof as we partner with you to nurse your company back to health.


We specialise in internal auditing and risk management in the public and private sectors. However, we also offer forensic and special purpose audits.

Internal auditing is an independent, objective assurance and consulting activity designed to add value and improve an organisation’s operations. Our methods depend largely on the needs of our clients and our target is always to achieve optimum performance from all operations within an organisation. We perform the audits with an in-depth understanding of the business culture, systems, and processes, the internal audit activity provides assurance that internal controls in place are adequate to mitigate the risks, governance processes are effective and efficient, and organizational goals and objectives are met.

Evaluating emerging technologies. Analyzing opportunities. Examining global issues. Assessing risks, controls, ethics, quality, economy, and efficiency. Assuring that controls in place are adequate to mitigate the risks. Communicating information and opinions with clarity and accuracy. Such diversity gives internal auditors a broad perspective on the organization. And that, in turn, makes internal auditors a valuable resource to executive management and boards of directors in accomplishing overall goals and objectives, as well as in strengthening internal controls and organizational governance.

About Us

Years of experience mixed with a passion for business development

ControlPro (Pty) Ltd was created when the Director, Thirusha Govender (CIA, CRMA) merged her passion for business development with an extensive 17 years’ experience and expertise in the business, finance and internal audit fields. Her experience includes the private and public sectors in various industries and environments.

At ControlPro, we are passionate about developing businesses from the inside out to ensure sustainability and growth. We believe that the organisational structure (being admin and finance) is the core of any business. A lack of financial expertise, especially when establishing a business, has led to the failure of many businesses which were otherwise completely viable. We seek to partner with businesses to minimise this risk. Our satisfaction is your success!

Why Use Us?

Five reasons businesses choose to work with ControlPro


We have all round business expertise with 17 years’ experience. This means you are in good hands – we are optimally positioned to advise you.


We are able to identify problems which are making you lose money. Sometimes employees are too close to a problem inside an organisation to be able to identify it. 


You can save thousands of rands by hiring consultants only when they are needed, rather than hiring full-time employees. Businesses realise they can save additional money by not having to pay benefits for consultants they hire. Even though a consultant’s fees are generally higher than an employee’s salary, in the long haul, it simply makes good economic sense to hire a consultant and save on employee benefits.


We are able to provide objectivity. Consultants can provide an objective, fresh viewpoint – without worrying about what people in the organisation might think about the results and how they were achieved.


We can be hired to improve skills of existing employees. With much experience in training, ControlPro can provide on-the-job training to better equip your staff to meet your specific business needs.

Trainer Thirusha Govender of ControlPro (front, right), with the group of trainees.

Thirusha Govender of ControlPro knows a thing or two about internal controls in a company or organisation, which is why she recently conducted a training course on the topic at the Pietermaritzburg Chamber of Business. To keep a business running efficiently and effectively is a function of structure and direction, and also the role of internal controls. Apart from minimising the risk of fraud and/or error, internal controls facilitate accurate reporting, compliance with laws and regulations and helps an entity to focus on its vision and goals.
