Jeff and the team are here to help your business thrive.

What makes future accounting different from others?

We believe as a business owner you need access to financial information that has been reviewed by a professional more than annually.
Provided you want this too, we review our clients financial information every GST period. This review ensures:


  • Most (if not all) coding is correct (whether this is done by yourself or us)
  • Fixed assets are accounted for correctly (this can have a massive difference if you are purchasing or selling big ticket items)
  • Loans are up to date and balancing
  • If your year is looking better than last year, we can advise this and look to mitigate tax consequences
  • Conversely, if you year is looking worse than last year, we can look at the tax consequences of this too.

We have recently moved accounting firms to Jeff at Future Accounting and couldn’t be happier. Very easy to deal with, understood what was needed, and so approachable. Made the transition effortless and so worthwhile.

Whangarei Theatre Company Inc.

Jeff from Future Accounting has been a very supportive guide over the past few years as I navigated the intricacies of being a Treasurer for the Whangarei Theatre Company. No question was ever too trivial, and his answers have always been clear.
