We can take care of all your accounting needs, including the preparation of your financial accounts. Over the years we have found that a set of financials for tax compliance purposes is not enough.

We therefore focus more on management accounting in order to help business owners achieve maximum profitability and added value to their businesses by:

• Helping you to understand what makes your business tick
• Using that knowledge to plan for the future and provide information to solve today's problems quickly.

In most cases we will get you into the office after we have prepared your accounts and work with you to explain what is going on financially in your business and look at ways to optimise your business performance, minimise tax and build wealth.


We will work in partnership with you to minimise your tax and help you achieve your key objectives.

We provide a complete service of help and advice in all of the following areas:

• Preparation of personal, Trust and company tax returns and advice on payment of tax
• GST/FBT/ACC obligations
• Advice on and implementation of tax effective structures for asset protection and tax minimisation
• Management of any IRD Audits or disputes


We are experienced in business valuations and are able to provide you with simple guidelines and formulae for evaluating the worth of a business. Numerous matters need to be considered when buying an existing business, mostly to do with proper evaluation. We will work with you to ensure the right questions are asked when buying a business and provide an independent valuation providing you with answers to your queries.


A trust provides a valuable way of protecting the assets that you have accumulated for the benefit of others. We are able to offer specialist advice on Trust formation, ensuring that all statutory requirements are met. Obligations for trustees can often be onerous, and our assistance in Trust administration will be invaluable to ensure your Trust is not viewed as a 'sham'.

We are able to:

• Ensure that Trust administration and taxation is correctly performed
• Attend to the special requirements involved in reporting for Trusts and work with your Lawyer to ensure the realisation of your Trust goals
• Provide a minute keeping service


We are able to offer GST assistance in a number of areas.

These include:

• Registration queries
• Preparation of GST returns
• Filing and adjusting GST returns
• IRD audit assistance
• Specialist and other GST queries - eg going concerns and sale or purchase of property


Business today requires access to up to date accurate financial information. For this reason we are authorised resellers of EasyBooks - NZ's premier cashbook software. EasyBooks is designed and priced for small businesses needing a quick, simple computer package to keep accurate records of receipts and payments.

We not only sell you the software but we also train you on how to process information and create fully automated transactional and GST reports. We recognise that reports are no use unless you can understand them. We therefore provide you with information on how to interpret them so you can help gauge the performance of your business.
