We first started preparing UK tax returns in New Zealand in 2005 when a client, on realizing our director John Rutherford was from the UK, asked if he could help them prepare their UK Tax Return. As a UK Chartered Tax Adviser and having spent many years doing just that in the UK, John explained preparing the tax return would not be a problem.  Over the years the word spread and we now obtain a large proportion of our UK tax clients from referrals and word of mouth.  We have an office in Orewa available for meetings, although, as we have clients who live throughout NZ and the UK, we are more than happy to communicate via telephone and other electronic means.
