Non-Audit Services

 

 

 

The group’s revised policy on non-audit services provides guidelines on dealing with audit, audit-related, tax and other non-audit services that may be provided by Naspers’s independent auditor to group entities. It also sets out services that may not be performed by the independent auditor.

The audit committee preapproves audit and non-audit services to ensure these do not impair the auditor’s independence and comply with legislation. Under our guiding principles, the auditor’s independence will be deemed impaired if the auditor provides a service where he/she:

  • functions in the role of management of the company, or
  • audits his/her own work, or
  • serves in an advocacy role for the company.
