Agri-business

Helping farmers make the most of their Agribusinesses.

Our local Agribusiness team of 20 people will ensure that two senior staff understand your business intimately providing for continuity at all times.

We have a unique skill set including a broad banking background, practical farming experience and a technically competent team with strong industry relationships.  It may be that in certain circumstances one of our senior staff is more specialised or appropriate to deal with a matter than another and we will ensure that you obtain the benefit of this.

In addition to this we have a large office with a broad coverage of specialists including NZ tax, business recovery & insolvency, corporate finance, audit, corporate and international tax, business advisory services, risk advisory and wealth management.

With the ever increasing complexity of farming businesses, we are fortunate to be able to draw upon these specialist skill sets which is unique in relation to many rural based accounting practices.

We deliver expertise and individually tailored solutions for our clients and specialise in providing high quality, timely services that will exceed your expectations.

Some of our key roles include:

  • Tax preparation and planning
  • Assistance with financing, cash flows, financial statements, reporting and business plans
  • Succession Planning
  • Governance
  • Payroll and bookkeeping
  • Outsourcing

They are prepared to be there through good, bad and while your business grows”
