The Takapuna office of Deloitte Private provides accounting, tax compliance, virtual Financial Controller and virtual CFO services to growth-focussed businesses. Accounting Many of our clients do not need a full-time finance team and see the benefit in outsourcing that work to us. We handle all functions, including payroll, AP, AR, and GST reporting. Tax compliance We prepare annual accounts and income tax returns for a number of businesses of various stages and size. Using smart technology we are able to do this at a surprisingly reasonable rate for a “Big 4” firm. We are also able to call upon the specialists within the wider Deloitte firm for any specific tax issues or planning. Virtual Finance Controller We work with many companies who use a virtual Financial Controller service to provide oversight and mentorship to their internal finance functions. This often involves assisting with the completion of monthly or quarterly management accounts, reviewing GST returns, etc. Virtual Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Our vCFO service is focussed on providing strategic input from finance prospective. Sometimes we work one day a month, sometimes one day a week; much depends on the size of the business and the aspirations of the owners/managers. We often get involved in financial budgeting and forecasting, assisting companies to prepare for new investment/borrowing from external investors/bankers and best-practice corporate governance. Other services We often work with our colleagues in the Auckland CBD, proving auditing, corporate finance, assurance, and technology advisory services to many North Shore business. The Deloitte Private office in Takapuna was established as a result of the merger in November 2014 between Deloitte and Diablo Management; a business founded by Mark Talbot, a resident of Hauraki. Mark is now a partner with Deloitte and continues to be based in the Takapuna office.
