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.
