Tax Compliance for NZ Based Companies

At Business Like, we adopt a proactive and thorough approach to managing your business compliance needs. Our strategy includes:

  1. In-Depth Initial Meeting: We start by scheduling a meeting to get to know you and your business and discuss your requirements.
  2. Transparent Quoting System: To ensure clarity and transparency, we can provide a detailed quotation for our accounting services. This gives you clear insight into the costs involved and the specific services you’re paying for.
  3. Effortless Record Transfer: If you’re transitioning from another accounting advisor, we make the process smooth and hassle-free. We will write to your previous advisor to request the transfer of your records, ensuring a seamless changeover.
  4. Comprehensive Year-Round Management: Throughout the year, we manage your affairs as we have agreed with you in our terms of engagement. This may encompasses collecting records at year-end, handling any GST requirements, filing your tax returns to expedite refunds and filing all necessary statutory and tax related returns.
  5. Handling Disputes and Issues with Tax Authorities: Taxation problems can occur for various reasons, such as errors made by you or an advisor, misinterpretations by tax authorities, or issues stemming from past decisions. Regardless of the cause, our focus is on resolving these issues efficiently and effectively. We aim to mitigate these problems, allowing you to refocus on your core business and move forward with your life.
