YOUR FARM Is A BUSINESS


We provide business mentoring and expert business advisory services to farmers and commercial business

‘’By learning about you and your business we aim to help you increase your wealth and then protect it’’.

- Tim Mayston


Our shared offices are surrounded by kiwifruit vines where we notice every seasonal change and farming practice.  We open this space to our social and business community.  Schools, bankers, business, professionals, community groups, researchers. You.

This space allows for the incubation and testing of ideas in preparation for delivery to our clients. 
Here, we think about tomorrow.

Our background is horticultural. Our family are third generation kiwifruit farmers. Our clients are dairy farmers, orchardists, mussel farmers, bee keepers, primary industry service providers, and other contributors to our local economy.

WHAT WE DO


We are Chartered Accountants and Kiwifruit farmers too.

WHAT WE DO


We are Chartered Accountants and Kiwifruit farmers too.

Succession Planning

Do not underestimate the time it takes to handover the farm to the kids or to successfully get the financial and emotional freedom you are seeking.  Planning is the key to ensure the interests of all members of the family are looked after.

Expert Reporting

Wow look at my profit – but hey, where’s the cash!  An all too common theme.  Cashflow is super important and varies for many reasons including the current gate return or weather.  We place a lot of emphasis on cashflow and nail it.

trusts

Trusts form an important part of planning for your future. As you build your wealth a Trust will allow you to preserve and protect your assets for you and your family. A trust will assist you with your succession plans and eventual retirement.

Mentoring

To keep your eye on the objective and its achievement we meet with you on a regular basis - beefing up the decision making process. 

The Basics

We are chartered accountants and so an important service to most clients is the preparation of financial statements and of course tax compliance (GST, income tax etc). A business can’t be run without solid and regular financial reporting.
