Your compliance resourcing partner for growth

OUR STORY

WE’RE HERE FOR YOU.

Our business is entirely focused on making your business more time and cost efficient. Since 2007, we’ve been evolving and perfecting an outsourcing model that takes care of the bread and butter work of accountancy for around 25% of the usual cost. It means you can improve profit margins and have more time to focus on expanding your practice. We call it ‘compliance partnering’, and there’s strong evidence to suggest we do it better than anybody else in New Zealand.

The concept of outsourcing the compliance side of accounting is well established internationally. Industry sector experts agree that it’s the way of the future for accounting practices that want to establish a ‘lean methodology’ business model to improve their bottom line. Now, with our optimised data security and quality assurance measures, we’re delivering the highest standard of outsourced compliance accounting available in New Zealand.

The offshore team that provides our services includes more than 450 qualified accountants who have a thorough working knowledge of New Zealand’s financial reporting and tax compliance requirements, as well as commonly used software platforms such as Xero and MYOB. They work only for us, are well-rewarded and operate like a seamless extension of your practice.

Many Kiwi accounting practices have already chosen us as their compliance partner. They range from small practices to large firms with more than 100 employees. Our clients see us as trusted members of their team, and that’s why compliance partnering should be on your agenda this year.

OUR TEAM

We have a dedicated resource of qualified accountants at our offices in Mohali, India. In many ways our offshore operation runs like a New Zealand CA firm, with junior, intermediate and senior staff. Staff turnover is low because working conditions are excellent, there are valuable career advancement opportunities and we pay above award wages.

Our New Zealand team, based in Auckland, is in daily contact with our Mohali offices and senior accountants regularly travel to India to conduct training. We are led by Greg Rathbun, a respected chartered accountant with 30+ years’ experience.

GREG RATHBUN
OUTSOURCE COACH

Greg helped establish Connect Accounting in 2007 when he was a director in a mid-sized chartered accounting practice. Now Greg devotes much of his time sharing his knowledge on outsourcing to Connect Clients. He believes whilst the chartered accounting industry is in massive change this can deliver better outcomes both for CA’s and their clients.
