We can guide you through the process of:


  • Deciding on the best structure to use
    -Eg: Company, Trust, Partnership
    and Sole Trader
  • Preparing a business plan. Including the budget and cash flow forecast
  • Working out your finance requirements
  • Setting up your business, including forming a company and Inland revenue registrations
  • FInding an accounting system (at the level you need)

Business Planning

A great Business Planning process gets to the heart and soul of your business. Upon completion of pre-work, we’ll have a greater understanding of your vision and core values in order to facilitate a four-hour planning session to help you create a clear one page Business Plan.

The outcome of this service is to identify and prioritise goals, both short term and long term, create strategies to achieve your goals, enable you to review actual performance against targets and establish a 90 Day Action Plan to address immediate and critical issues.

Importantly, this process eliminates a factor that is all too common in business – procrastination.

Complimentary Client Review

As a valued client you’ll receive at least one Complimentary Client Review (CCR). In Fact, this is an actual event for a number of our clients. The CCR is an opportunity for you to set and review your goals and gives you clarity around the actions you need to take to achieve those goals. It also stimulates strategic discussion and identifies burning issues, opportunities and challenges so that you respond effectively. And of course, it’s an opportunity for our team to identify greater tax efficiencies and asset protection

Janet is very dependable and timely in all matters. Ideal for a small business needing someone to keep them on their toes. You never get large invoices out of the blue and you get great value.
