- Gareth Ready, April 2024

Great support. Made very welcome as new client. Felt comfortable even when I lacked the knowledge of how to set up a business.

- AR, February 2024

Prompt, polite and friendly, competent.

- Penny Darwin, February 2024

All staff are absolutely awesome.

- Grant W, February 2024

GRA have been looking after my finances for ages (Trust, rentals etc). They’re professional and friendly and have never gone crook at me when I send through last minute requests. Give them a go.

- Kim G, February 2024

Always available to give great advice and helped us out in a difficult situation.

- Karen, November 2023

Anna is fantastic. We often have lots of quick questions which are swiftly answered by Anna via a return phone call or by email. Her team is also very responsive.

- NC, November 2023

Salesh Chand is great to deal with on asset planning, tax planning and discussing wider business and market implications.  Day to day I deal more with Alex Gackovich who is very responsive.  Their combined knowledge plus that of the wider GRA team is impressive. 

- Ben Robinson, October 2023

We were about to subdivide our section and needed property tax advice. Googled "who's any good" and GRA were in the top 3 on a few sites that recommended providers. We worked with Anthony Lipscombe. Very easy to deal with, comprehensive chat/ conversation that led to a written report by Anthony where his thinking was sharp, clearly communicated, coming at aspects from multiple points of view. i.e. he took time to make sure the reader (my wife and I) completely understood (in plain English) what he was saying. Highly recommended.

- Jason C, October 2023

I find Salesh easy to talk to and adds value to any conversation we do have. The staff overall are pleasant to deal with and I don’t have any complaints.

- HM, September 2023

I would like to express my gratitude for taking the time to meet with me today. It's always a pleasure to connect with a knowledgeable and talented consultant like yourself. Our conversation was truly enjoyable, and the overview you provided was exactly what I've been looking for.

- CH, August 2023

Hi Anna, It was very nice meeting you in person today. Thank you so much for coming up with this precise summary so promptly. I feel very blessed to have you, a diligent and efficient professional lady taking care of my accounting/tax needs. 

- Jackie Zhang, July 2023

Just wanted to pass on how incredibly impressed I was with Quade Fraser, I have some complicated aspects to my personal situation and was looking at the a purchase of a property while needing to consider multiple individuals, a company and with my contracting and GST considerations.

I asked the consultant multiple questions over our meeting and he was able to calmly and articulately answer everything and give me cause to think about a whole lot of areas I would not have even thought of including; bright line, GST, mixed-use assets, trust structures (considering children beneficiaries), utilising a company structure etc. The bottom line is, I have a much better idea on what we need to do to structure my affairs in the most beneficial way for my family over the long-term.

Very knowledgeable, professional and with a great manner too. I got a huge amount of value out of the meeting.

- Kate, June 2023

Salesh and the team are awesome! Really approachable, knowledgeable and I feel like they're on my side!

- Kelsey Price, June 2023

GRA's services are top notch. I took their property course online over COVID, and then I went to them for a second opinion on some property tax advice I'd received that didn't sound quite right to me. They set me right and saved me from a massive IRD bill. After that I moved over to them full-time. They've given me ongoing sound tax and asset planning advice, and I greatly appreciate and value my annual review meeting with my accountant. I can't speak more highly of GRA in looking out for my best interests.

- Sarah P, June 2023

I have recently began using GRA as our accounting service, and they are by far the best I have used. They are not only on time, but efficient and work with you to understand your position. It is difficult to find such a good accounting company, but the team go over & above- its not just about the numbers! Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a new accountant, or wanting to change from an exisiting one!

 Development School was like an awesome Netflix mini series that you didn’t want to end.  - Ben K, July 2022

What I enjoyed the most about Development School was the case studies, range of speakers, Auckland focus, access to slides/videos, and that the information presented can prevent costly mistakes.

- S Wilson, July 2022

Your customer service at GRA is impressive. I found you all to be very gracious and incredibly helpful, so thank you

- Nick W, March 2022

Thank you so much for your help!  I would like to make special mention of how impressed I am with the level of service GRA provided, start to finish.  You are all highly professional and helpful and you communicate instructions in a clear and concise manner which made it simple and stress free.  I also greatly appreciate that you were able to assist us within the limited time frame.
