winter edition 2012 NZ

Welcome to clients and business associates to this edition of Be Informed.

The economy continues to drift or stutter along.  Just when it appears that a recovery is on the way more bad news arrives, mainly from Europe that puts the breaks on progress.  We however have been spared the worst of it by being less reliant upon Europe than traditionally we have been.  Exporters will be a little happier with the downward slide of the Kiwi against the Green Back this month and assist with export lead growth.  The easing in interest rates again is good for business and likely to support prices in the housing sector.

Back in March three of our staff took part in the annual Shave for a Cure event which entailed them shaving off all of their hair,  Shave for a Cure is a fundraising event put on by Leukaemia and Blood Cancer New Zealand, to date we have raised $975 towards this great cause.

William Buck is excited to introduce to our clients, Audit Shield an Insurance that covers you if you are subject to official review or investigation of returns by the IRD or any government authority.  Audit Shield provides the payment of professional fees otherwise incurred by you the client.  Other great things about Audit Shield are;

  • No Excess
  • Competitive rates
  • All legal entities can be combined under one premium

Our clients should have received an Audit Shield pack explaining this service in detail.  However, in the mean time feel free to contact our office if you would like further information.

In this edition of Be Informed you will find articles on a range of issues Including changes to the NZ Tax Rules, Relationship Properties and the Results from our Exit Planning Survey.

William Buck appreciates your continued support.

Best wishes
