Starting a business can be complicated. We help our clients make the right decisions from the start, saving them time and money going forward. 
We've provided a summary of the services we offer below. Use the drop-down arrows to access more information.

Purchasing a business

You are looking to purchase a business & need to know where to start, whether the business makes sense, whether the asking price is reasonable or needs more negotiation & what the best ownership structure is.

We have helped many clients with business purchases – assisting with the due diligence process to assess the business and look for any issues, with the valuation using our professional contacts who work in business valuation, and get started with the best structures, software and correct setting up with IRD. Company formations are quick and easy to do for you when required.

Getting the right pre-purchase advice can potentially save you from “losing your shirt” on a bad deal!
Example: Our client came to us with the business for sale promotional documents and financial information. We helped with the due diligence processes and obtained good quality valuation information for them. Our client was able to negotiate a better deal with the information we provided. We then moved into the setting up stage helping with the company formation including the business ownership structure, the financing in a way to obtain the best tax outcomes, completed all the IRD registrations and got them started on Xero software. They are now going ahead and successfully growing their newly acquired business to new levels.

Doing it the right way at the start can potentially save you huge amounts of time and cost.
We have helped many clients get started with the best structures, software and correct setting up with IRD. Company formations are quick and easy to do for you when required.

TRUSTS

Accountancy Team Meeting
We will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of trusts with you.
You get to make an informed choice on whether trusts can help you and potentially save a lot of costs & future risks with peace of mind.
Example: We had a good discussion with this client, helped them think about their goals and dreams, formed the company for them, completed all of the IRD registrations and got them started on Xero software. They are now going ahead with no compliance worries and focusing of their business.

Claiming for your vehicle

We have a wide range of experience in helping clients optimize their vehicle claims.
You get to claim for your vehicle in the best way and reduce the risk of IRD audit in this often complex area of tax law.
Example: After our conversation, our client transferred his car into his company and even after allowing for Fringe benefit costs is now better off by $1,700 a year after tax. 

Business risks

We can help you with your business risks assessment and suggest appropriate insurance professionals for you to talk to where insurances need to be reviewed.
This exercise can help you reduce risk, possibly save you some cost and might even save your business!
Example: A client had insufficient key man insurance cover in place. We brought in our personal insurances expert and cost-effective policies are now in place – creating not only peace of mind but a business continuity plan as well.
