Naked Accountants in South Africa Will Do Your Books…But That’s It

Managing client expectations can be tricky sometimes. 

Natural Cleaning Co., which bills itself as "the world's only all-naked service company," was founded a month ago by Jean-Paul Reid after he struggled to find work as an accountant in a country with a 23.9 percent unemployment rate. The company offers housekeeping, accounting, legal, computing and other services, with a twist — staff show up either topless or fully nude, depending on the client's request. "Cleaning is the popular one, and then handyman services for the ladies," Reid, 29, told AFP. He said he currently gets about one client per day, typically white middle-aged men. His employees, who are featured in various work for him part-time and have day jobs ranging from model to personal trainer to law student to accountant. The service is "purely entertainment", Reid stressed, saying: "We don't offer prostitution or anything like that."
