Tax time doesn’t have to be stressful

No one likes to think about tax. No one likes a call from the IRD. No one likes to pay more tax than they have to. These are universal truths that are unlikely to change. Here at WH Accounting & Advisory, we’re here to make tax time a breeze. That means you won’t have to worry about a stressful tax call or wonder if you’re paying too much tax.

Save money on tax

We’ve worked with hundreds of individuals and businesses over the years. During that time, we’ve learned a thing or two about business and about tax. Our tax specialists can help you save money on your tax bill through careful planning and preparation. We know it can be a major cost for you and we do our best to reduce it by getting you every deduction you deserve.

Stay compliant

As dedicated tax advisors, we’ll prepare and lodge your returns for you. We can help with individual, company and trust tax returns, so you don’t have to worry. We’ll also ensure you meet your GST, FBT and ACC obligations and provide our recommendations on the best structures to maximise tax savings and protect your assets. On top of that, our team can manage any IRD audits or disputes as well as applications for financial relief or debt remission. It’s all part of our commitment to helping our clients save money and stay compliant.
