Taxation can be a confusing topic, however we specialise in preparing income taxation returns for individuals and every type of business entity structure.

Our technology allows us to lodge your tax returns electronically with the Inland Revenue Department.  This means that your returns will be processed more efficiently.

Our system also calculates your taxation obligations and automatically generates payment reminders to ensure you are not exposed to late payment penalties.

Planning for taxation is a wise move.  We can help you legitimately minimise the income tax you have to pay.

We can help you determine in advance what your annual obligations will be and adjust them as your circumstances change.  We can also assist you to choose between entity structures to provide a business ownership vehicle that protects your assets, provides for succession planning, and has effective taxation outcomes.

Agriculture, viticulture, forestry and horticulture are industries with unique taxation obligations and opportunities.  Our team specialises in these areas and will ensure you are in a position to make informed decisions about your tax affairs.

The GST rules and regulations can be difficult to understand, and the penalities for not getting it right can be scary.  We provide GST advice and can help you with GST return preparation.

For many clients we manage the whole process - reminding you when your GST is due, updating your financial records and calculating your GST obligations.

Contact us to take the hassle out of GST requirements!

If you have employees to whom you provide benefits other than a salary or wages then you could be liable for fringe benefit tax.

We can register you with the IRD and then assist you with the completion and lodgement of your fringe benefit tax returns.
