Client testimonials

I’m now living in Ireland and approached FinGlobal (previously cashkows) to help me with my financial emigration process, as this can be a very painful thing to attempt on your own. cashkows took care of everything, keeping me updated every step of the way. They made sure I had all the relevant paperwork filled out correctly, followed up with all parties from SARS to my bank. I am extremely happy with the efficient and friendly service I received from cashkows, and would happily recommend them to any South African expats.

Excellent and professional service from the FinGlobal (previously cashkows) team! What a pleasure after trying to deal with the bank and insurance companies on my own!
