How do you Choose an Accountant?

Accounting Services with a Difference

Gilligan Rowe & Associates have earned the reputation of being New Zealand’s foremost property accountants.  We could talk non-stop about how good we are at what we do and how we can save you tax, but if we couldn’t actually deliver I’m sure you would agree we wouldn’t be in business. 

What makes Gilligan Rowe & Associates so unique is that we are able to combine both tax (accounting) and asset planning (structures, trusts, asset protection) under the same roof without you having to involve a separate accountant and solicitor.  We are able to manage everything and make sure you receive the best of both worlds – asset protection and reduced tax.  So go ahead and request your free initial consultation with one of our senior consultants today.

We are an accounting firm like no other in that we are proactive in our approach to the property market.  Not only do we do the normal accounting things like tax returns and financial accounts, but we run up-to-date property seminars monthly as well as our Property School course. We present at many seminars and workshops throughout the country on property, tax and structures, along with commentary on what is happening in the market right now. To find out when our next event is, go to our Events webpage.

Here are the Top Five Reasons to Choose Gilligan Rowe & Associates as your Accountant

  1. Accounting

    GRA specialise in property accounting - buy-to-hold, trading, development, residential and commercial - but also are committed to small, medium and large businesses throughout New Zealand that are turning over from $5,000 up to our largest client with $100m+ turnover. To find out more, go to GRA property accounting or GRA business accounting.

  2. Asset Protection/Asset Planning

    GRA are committed to our accounting clients not only to help you reduce your tax but to help you protect your personal assets. Asset planning ensures taxation, estate planning and asset protection are all dealt with together. To make sure you have the best tax and asset protection requires an understanding of your affairs as well as your long-term goals. This involves a taxation and legal analysis to help put you in the best position to increase your net worth while adding protection in the right place. To find out more go to asset planning and structures.

  3. IRD

    Most accountants work for the IRD and then the client. We do it differently - we work for you first, then the IRD. This may sound strange but we think outside the box (legally) and make sure we have your best interests at heart as well as meeting your IRD obligations. Tax obligations are a given but we think it’s fair to first review the issue, form a view on your position (are IRD right?), then arrange a strategy to resolve the problem. It is imperative that we make sure we get all the facts first before jumping the gun.

  4. Your Personal Accountant With No Extra Hidden Costs

    Once you come on board as an accounting client, you are allocated to your Client Services Manager (senior accountant and tax adviser). Talking with them and staying in touch is all part of the service at no extra cost. So don’t spend time worrying about how much it’s going to cost to answer your tax or structure question - just give them a call. It’s all part of our service to you. 

  5. International Tax Advice (Returning home or living abroad)

    New Zealand tax is complex enough without you having to understand the tax rules for when you are returning home, moving to New Zealand from another country, or departing to live outside New Zealand. GRA have the accounting expertise to ensure you get the best New Zealand tax and structure advice. We have a specialist department which can deal with these issues on a daily basis, so contact us now or go to GRA expats to find out more. Let GRA take the stress out of tax and legal structures when moving internationally.
