Business Services

Financial Statements/Annual Accounts

We provide full set of Financial Statements/Annual Accounts in approved formats. Financial Statements/Annual Accounts are essential both to comply with the Inland Revenue and also an excellent management tool.

Let us help you understand your Financial Statements/Annual Accounts so you can see the strengths and weaknesses in your business and so we can help you increase profits and wealth.

Contact us here for more information on how we can assist you.

Quarterly/Monthly Management Reports

Quarterly/Monthly Management Reports are essential in any business for the following reasons: 

  • These provide a picture of exactly where your business is, the trends and your wealth monthly or quarterly instead of only once a year.
  • Help us give you an accurate taxation situation saving you any interest and only paying what you are required to.
  • We can monitor budget figures against actual. Any variances can be monitored and corrected early.

Bookkeeping and Accounting

Modern business demands up-to-date, accurate financial information. We can relieve you and your staff of the enormous burden of all your bookkeeping and accounting requirements, including the preparation of your annual accounts and periodic management accounts for tax, business appraisal, planning purposes, and more.

We will discuss your requirements with you and provide information relevant to your particular situation, as well as constructive advice, on a regular basis.



A good budget is a necessity for a good business plan. It is one of the best business tools you can have, enabling you to set financial targets and measure your performance.

In addition to goal-setting value, budgets will often improve your chances of acquiring funding. Financiers often require forecasts as a prerequisite for funding approval.

Let us show you how a budget can provide feedback that helps you prepare for the future of your business!


Cash Flow Forecasting

Are you holding too much inventory? Is this the right time to expand your business? Are you going to have enough cash to pay all expenses every month? Surviving in today's business climate requires you to spend more time working on your business than in it.

We can provide you with accurate, timely, informative cash flow forecasting reports that enable you to:

  • Realise and understand when cash is available
  • Plan and prepare for expansion, stock control, and taxes
  • Analyse and anticipate key expenses

Equipped with this information, we'll work with you to develop action strategies that improve your bottom line.

Assistance with software implementation

We have experience with setting up many different accounting programs efficiently and accurately. We can also help you choose the appropriate software solution for your business. Once you have your accounting software operating we can monitor this to ensure that it is kept accurate so this information can be used for GST and help in preparing your Financial Statements/Annual Accounts.
