Frequently Asked Questions
Are you just typical "bean counters"?

The answer to that is a resounding NO. 

Whilst, we are experts in accounting and taxes, what sets us apart is that we truly want business success for our clients.

We offer more than just accounting and taxation services. Our virtual CFO services for small and medium businesses is unparalleled. 

Our partners have 30 + years of commercial business experience.

Commercial business experience is very different to accountants (bean counters) that just have number-crunching experience.

Commercial business experience means that we actually know how a business behaves and the challenges it faces in the real world.

All you need to do is have a chat with us and you will instantly realise the difference

Does the excellent service that you offer mean a higher fee?

Not at all. Excellent service is something our business is built on. Our fee is competitive and fair but our service is exceptional.

Best of all our fees are fixed upfront so you know exactly what your fee will be right from the get-go.

The number 1 comment we get from clients is "I wish I had come to you sooner...you guys have made my life a lot easier"

How long have you been in business for?

We have been in business since July 2009. Our two partners have in excess of 30 years of commercial / business accounting and tax as well as business partnering experience. 

We have also had IRD's 100% filing certificate of achievement for a number of years.

Do I have to meet face to face?

Not necessarily. 

Because we service the whole of New Zealand but are based in Auckland, we can do everything online through emails and your own personalised client portal. Even documentation signing can be done online.

However, if you prefer to meet we can cater for that as well. We can come and meet you when it's convenient for you - even outside normal business hours!

Do I need to have an accounting system?

Not necessarily. For example, we don't expect an IT contractor to have a full-fledged Xero subscription. A business bank account is more than enough or even a spreadsheet may suffice.

We work with whatever you have got.

Most of our packages include a Xero subscription - dependent on the client's size and profile.

If we believe that your life may become easier with some software - we will suggest it.

Is getting my accounts and taxes in order going to be a real hassle?

That's why we are here!

To deliver exceptional service, we need to make accounting and taxes hassle-free for you. 

From client onboarding to the regular provision of information to regular reminders and newsletters - everything is efficient. 

Most existing clients are at a stage where they know that long before the due date they will get communication, returns and reports that they just need to review and sign. And even reviewing. commenting and signing is hassle-free and pain-free.
