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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Hi Juliette, Just want to say thank you for all the work you have done and advice you've given. Definitely tricky during these Covid times and still getting the job done. Want to wish you and your team good fortune, and hopefully in the future work together to get another property.- Arthur W, September 2021
Thank you for the incredibly detailed assessment of the improvement discrepancies, all the considerations and the suggested course of action. You've made everything understandable and clear.
In all a good result, thank you very much for all your involvement Maggie, you've been wonderful to work with and certainly made my first home buying rodeo a lot smoother than it might otherwise have been!
Thanks again, I wouldn't be making such informed decisions without you!
- Ben Tong, November 2020
Just letting you know we got this house!! Super uber excited! Just wanted to say that there is no way in hell I could have got this over the line without your detailed and comprehensive help, you have been absolutely amazing. I have absorbed everything you’ve taken the time to teach me about analysing properties for development potential. Really amazing…. thank you!!

We just want to say that with these being the first set of accounts to be prepared for us by GRA, we are very happy with the outcome, and really feel like we are getting the support, guidance and advice that we have spent many years looking for, but only found with yourself and GRA, so thank you for that. We are very happy with the property focus and resources available with GRA to help us move ahead with our Property investment goals too.
