About us

and what we do

We are a small firm located in the Okaihau. We are registered with IRD as a tax agent, and as such, we are able to provide our clients with the advantage of "extension of time" for their annual tax returns, meaning that these are not required to be filed by 7 July each year.

However, this does not mean we are tardy in preparing your annuals. We make use of some of the latest technology to improve efficiency and service, and our clients reap the benefits.

Our principal, Linda Whyte has many years' experience in accounting for small businesses.

Her qualifications include:


BBus - Accounting,
DipBus - Accounting,
Xero Certified trainer,
Atainz member..

Our mission is to provide accounting help to our clients at what ever level they wish, and to provide outstanding service, including being readily available and always approachable.

Our use of modern technology means that location is no barrier to service. We can provide help to you wherever you are located, providing there is telephone (and preferably Internet) coverage.

We specialize in small businesses and "not for profit" organisations.
