Compliance should be invisible

We complete clients' must do work competently, cost effectively and hassle-free so compliance is invisible.


Annual accounts

Whether your entity is non-profit, a sole trader, a partnership or trust or any type of company, we can help you meet compliance requirements by preparing annual accounts relevant to your needs and in accordance with NZ Financial Reporting Standards, Companies Act 1993 and Financial Reporting Act 1993.  Be completely on top of your tax returns, tax liability and bank loan requirements, and best of all, manage your cash flow and business planning.


Tax return preparation

We are a registered Tax Agent with Inland Revenue and can access your tax information online and communicate with Inland Revenue on your behalf, and make your life easy by electronically preparing and filing all your tax types including GST, PAYE, FBT, RWT and Income Tax. We'll advise you to minimise use-of-money interest and late payment penalties, giving you reminders and advice to manage your payments.


Business start up & restructuring

We advise the best fit business structures taking into consideration your current and future plans and legal compliance including completion of all registration requirements with Inland Revenue, Companies Office and other regulatory bodies for Non-profit organisations, sole traders, partnerships and limited partnerships, trusts and estates, limited liability companies, look through companies. Our assistance does not end there. Once your new entity is formed, we will customise a service plan that best fits needs. We will walk the journey with you and be there for the long haul. 

Companies Office

Maintaining compliance with Companies Act 1993 can be timely and costly and non-compliance could result in claims from a third party or shareholder.   Our Company Governance team will complete every aspect of registering your company, preparing and filing your Annual Company Return and maintaining your statutory registers and documents. We will ensure you follow requirements for General Meetings, maintain registers of shareholder' and directors' minutes and resolutions, prepare share transfer forms and can advise on general Company Law.   

Trust administration & Estate planning

Family Trusts are easily set up and a great way of providing asset protection but failure to complete necessary administration could lead to unexpected tax consequences and poor protection. Trust formation, administration and estate planning needs to be a collaborative approach involving you, your accountant and lawyer. We recommend you involve us in the process to ensure there are no unexpected structural or tax consequences from your estate plan. 

Structure & advice

Taxation is complex and often requires assistance with tax planning, structuring and sometimes audits. 

Determine your best structure to minimise your taxes within the law. Tax planning involves looking forward to plan payments of taxes already assessed and payment of future taxes based on future results, helping to avoid tax penalties, use-of-money interest and losing benefit of tax losses and imputation credits.
We’ll take the worry out of complying with New Zealand taxation legislation and ensure your business operates at a best practice standard when it comes to tax and government levies.
