What We Do

The team at Sumpter Baughen are equipped to help you grow a strong, successful business. Providing high quality accounting services and expert advice that helps increase profit, protect assets and gain real results is what we do best.

Specialised Advisory Services

You can call on us to assess and assist when you or your business is under pressure.

When it comes to complex business issues or decisions it can be hard to know where to begin. Often, having someone external to the company explore matters is the most beneficial way to gain direction and move forward.

Sumpter Baughen's highly qualified team can assess the situation, advise a strategic plan of attack and help execute the delivery.

Bank finance proposals

We’re experienced in the art of bank finance proposals and we can help you with yours. Our previous work in this area ranges from personal loan applications, to proposals for new multi-million dollar commercial buildings, and everything in between.

Expert tax consultant and advisors

Tax legislation in New Zealand is highly complex and regularly updated. Staying on top of changes in the industry requires a lifelong commitment to tax, and we can offer you exactly that.

Our decades of experience and proven track record of success in dealing with the IRD, you can be sure you’re getting the very best tax advice from us.

Steve Ganley, Partner at Sumpter Baughen is one of New Zealand’s leading tax specialists. His 15 years with the IRD as a tax inspector and time working for one of the ‘Big Four’ accounting firms means he has a wealth of experience in dealing with complex and difficult tax issues.

New business opportunities

When you have an idea for a new business, or you’re thinking of buying an existing business, come and talk to us first. We’ll help you decide how best to implement your ideas, and how to structure your business for future success.

IRD disputes

Navigating tax legislation can be a minefield. Sumpter Baughen can negotiate on your behalf with the Inland Revenue Department over a range of tax issues.

Our success in this area is due largely in part to our in-depth understanding of tax legislation and vast experience with the IRD.
