Sasfin is terminating KPMG's role as an independent sponsor and has decided to put its audit out to tender as part of its commitment to good governance.
KPMG has cleared out its South African leadership and withdrawn its findings from a South African Revenue Services (Sars) report into the so-called rogue unit following an internal investigation which has revealed serious failings at the firm.
KPMG has been a joint auditor at Sasfin for 18 years.
Sars is stopping all work being done by KPMG and reporting the firm to the Finance Minister to be blacklisted.
Sasfin, along with SA's four major banks - Standard Bank, Barclays Africa, Nedbank and FirstRand - earlier this year also severed ties with Gupta-owned company Oakbay following allegations of state capture.
