In any business it’s easy to sound impressive: somewhat more difficult to do an impressive job. At Curtis McLean we don’t pretend to be what we’re not. Promises are often made. But how often kept?
We do. We are chartered accountants and we do claim to be leaders in what we do.
We can advise you of ways to protect your assets from business failure or unforeseen circumstances. We can help you plan for your retirement.
We offer current and accurate expertise to ensure you pay no more tax than necessary.
We know the rules and we are very experienced in setting up effective tax structures.
We make this essential task as convenient for you as possible. We will review the way you currently record information and recommend ways to speed or automate the process. While we generally set a six-week timeline for preparing returns, please discuss any special needs for urgency.
Whenever we review financial accounts we follow a 72-point checklist. Such proven
systems reinforce focused thinking at all times.
The New Zealand tax system is complicated, with income and provisional tax, GST, FBT, PAYE and more to consider. We can prepare all your required returns; or we can help you put in place simple and effective systems to meet your obligations.
