It's Monday 12 November, we are all sitting at our desks ready to "attack" the week.

"With our passion and purpose you will profit." 

As the card above suggests ... we love what we do!



Everything we do is targeted at making your accounting easier by condensing bundles of information into simple strategies to get you ahead. 

But getting ahead and reaching your financial ambitions can't be achieved by just doing your end accounts and tax returns, touching base with you frequently or getting together regularly will. 

We will surprise you with what we know and what advice and ideas we can offer. 

Have a listen to our team song ...




In the month of October Kiwis bought 11,767 new cars – more than in any month ever recorded. But wait! 60% were SUV's, so much for the take off of electric cars and utilisation of public transport?

There are only supposed to be 400 lime scooters operating in Christchurch at the moment. Yet, I swear every day I see/pass at least 500.

From 1 October 2018 we are required to put in place increased due diligence on client identity.

In August 2017 the Anti-Money Laundering and Countering Financing of Terrorism Amendment Act was passed into NZ law, and includes the accounting, legal, real estate and other listed professions from 1 October 2018.

To comply with this legislation, we are now required to put in place increased due diligence on client identity.  This means that for you, our clients, should the nature of your work change, we may need to obtain further verification of identity to be held on our records.

Changes that may require us to carry out due diligence under the Act may be as simple as changing from a salaried job to your own business activity, or a change in trustees of a family trust, or a change in company shareholding.

We will be in contact with you if we need to obtain further information. If we contact you to request identity documents, please know there is a definite and legal requirement for us to do so, otherwise we wouldn't be doing it!
