We'll help you establish and develop your business
When you're setting up your business, we can provide financial and accounting advice to get you up and running on a financially sound footing. We'll make sure all the things you're obliged by law to have in place are set up properly.
If you're buying or selling a business, we can shine a light into all the financial nooks and crannies involved in the deal, so you can make the right decisions.
If you already own a business, then we can advise you on how to make it work even better!
Long and Cowan provided accurate, timely and important information relating to tax requirements. They went out of their way to research a difficult issue on our behalf and supported and guided us through an involved process of preparing and submitting accounts to IRD. Great professional service.
