“As a Maori organisation, we have found Accountants Bay of Plenty Limited to be very responsive and understanding of our needs as a business. All reports that we have received from them have been of an exceptional standard but still at a level where the information is easily understood by all our Board Members.”

“Trish took on the mess left by a very incompetent local Accountant, took the time to speak with us to find out how she could help us, kept the lines of communication wide open. Trish very capably unraveled the mess and competently showed us and the IRD that our business was again meeting all our requirements. In our numerous dealings with Trish we have found her to be extremely professional, friendly, a great listener and a very good advisor.

“Trish and Maurice understand the complexities of Iwi/Hapu affairs and Waitangi Settlement processes while ensuring that there is a clear understanding of the requirements to operate and implement robust commercial models that embrace the vision we have for our development.”

“We asked for help to work through taxation and management problems in our business. This was after asking for help from a number of other professional companies. None of them came through for us. There were times when the pressure and burden of the demands made by IRD were stressful and upsetting. Trish Patterson worked with us to deal with these challenges and at the same time to help to restructure our business systems.

We are now on the way to a more secure and robust financial future and the business systems are efficient and meeting essential timeframes.”

“I just wanted to say how much I appreciate your prompt attention in completing the tax returns for my husband and I appreciate the professional service.”
