Welcome to Canterbury Accountants

In response to COVID-19:

How can your business respond to COVID-19?

Office closed until further notice


During the lockdown period, we will have some changes to our normal operation per below:

  1. We will have no access to our phone and PO Box, our primary contact will be by emails. admin@canterburyaccountants.co.nz We have also opened company accounts at Facebook, Whatsapp, Skype and WeChat, which you can have video calls with us as well.
  2. We will continue to work as usual to complete your accounts and tax returns, however, due to limited access to our PO Box and office, we kindly ask you to send in your information by emails.
  3. If you have recently posted your signed tax returns to our PO Box, please send us an email, so we can update them in the IRD system accordingly.
  4. If you have outstanding tax returns at Inland Revenue, don't worry, given the special circumstance, it is more likely that Inland Revenue will relax the due date in due course. IRD has already put some tax relief plans in place, if you need any help on this, please contact us.

As you are aware this is an evolving situation, we will follow the Ministry of Health guidelines and keep you informed of any changes. Please follow our Facebook or check our website for any updates.

We appreciate your understanding and co-operation in this matter. Stay Safe and healthy.

Kind regards,

Canterbury Accountants
