Chartered Accountants Auckland

What a way to end the financial year!  It feels more like the 89th of March, rather than the 31st.  We’re sorry if you haven’t heard from us already but we’ve been overwhelmed with some clients struggling to keep up with booming sales while others are facing the very real pain of not surviving this.  If isolation boredom has kicked in, you might actually be “looking forward to” getting your end-of-year tax records sorted and, if that’s the case, you’ll find a list of what to send us below.  Another boredom buster you should be doing today is writing off your bad debts and doing your stocktake.  If your inventory software isn’t reliable then a physical stocktake should be your first priority when lockdown ends.

Take care & stick together but obviously at a distance!  ❤  [Checklist on Page 2]
