Accountants Services Auckland 


Is your business in need of having its finances tidied up? Are you thinking of setting up a trust or estate? Here at Gilligan Rowe + Associates we pride ourselves on o ffering you the best team of expert accountants in Auckland. Our highly trained accountants have been tending to Kiwis' accounting needs for many years and have dedicated themselves to providing clients with the utmost efficient and effective service. In the accounting industry we sometimes refer to what we call the 'expectation gap'. This refers to the contrast in what clients sometimes expect of their accountant and the actual service received.

This 'expectation gap' can sometimes pop up because people tend to go to their accountants with a wide spectrum of matters, including the likes of business development, taxation planning, property, marketing, personal wealth advancement as well as basic tax and compliance. However, many accountants in Auckland focus almost purely on tax returns and filling accounts, so they are not prepared to give their clients in depth valuable advice on tax planning, property or business, as they simply don't have the necessary expertise. More often than not, this means that the practitioner will have to resort to incredibly conservative or defensive advice, so as to avoid giving the wrong information.

However, there are Auckland accountants who can off er expert advice on a multitude of areas outside of tax returns, and GRA are proud to be one of them. Among our many services, we have highly knowledgeable and skilled accountants who are experts in areas such as property strategy planning (and portfolio building), setting up structures for asset protection and tax efficiency, and we even offer trust experts and provide an independent Trustee service. Not only that, but at GRA we also have a team exclusively trained to assist you in building your business. When it comes to Auckland accountants, we really do have all your accounting requirements covered.

As a New Zealand owned and operated accounting firm, based in Auckland, we take pride in providing Kiwis with an accounting service that is among the very best. We are not just here to help you with your taxes. We believe in using our skills and expertise to help our clients foster wealth creation through business and property. We believe in providing a range of teams specialised in each area, so we can tend to your individual needs and make sure your expectations are met.

Client Testimonial

Hi Salesh, I just wanted to send you an email on behalf of GRA so say how fantastic we have found your company to date. As you know, Ben and I joined GRA a couple of months ago and have just found you so amazingly helpful in getting our new property set up correctly and sorted out. We have what I would consider a rather complicated structure as a result and it’s a fantastic feeling to know that we are getting everything done in the best way possible. We have just had approval to put a minor dwelling on the property which will make a massive difference in terms of cash flow and obviously value, something we would never have even thought of without GRA and which we are very excited about. During the buying process we attended a seminar with Matthew and from the outset thought he was fab. We therein signed up for property school and found this nothing short of fantastic. The content was relevant, up to date and comprehensive, but more importantly it was taught in a way that we could actually understand and really get value out of. I’ve copied Janet into this email as she provided us her email address in the first class, another example of how personable you are and lovely to deal with. I wanted to mention also, that everybody GRA have recommended to us has been just so efficient and absolute masters at what they do. A wonderful network of people that we feel very lucky to now be able to call on. From Kris Pederson and Bryan Rist who put our mortgage together to the insurance guys they then referred us to, I’m super impressed. Within GRA, Ellery has probably turned things around for us faster than I’ve ever known before, something which we appreciated so very much when it came to crunch time. She’s always a pleasure to deal with and again, we’re stoked. We’ve just settled on the property today and are about to go and get the keys. I’m pretty pumped and hence this email is probably rather excitable. So, a massive thank you to you Salesh, the partners for such a fabulous 6 weeks at property school and everyone at GRA for their help. May this be the start of our property empire. Thanks again,
A & B - July 2015
