Accounting for Small Business

Accounting for Small Business

Storey & Associates Ltd specialise in accounting for small to medium sized businesses, meaning we have the experience and expertise to quickly and efficiently deal with your accounting needs and get it right the first time.

One of the major accounting issues small to medium sized businesses come across is dealing with IRD compliance.  Many businesses spend hours preparing paperwork for IRD only to find they have missed something small that ends up costing them large amounts.  We can help by dealing with IRD on your behalf covering all compliance work, or by showing you how to prepare the paperwork for each financial year.  This includes compiling and calculating taxes due and ensuring they are paid on time.

"After just one great training session SAASU went from looking completely foreign to being a very user-friendly and logical program. SAASU is so easy to use, the same logic applies for all the different functions, and it has been very adaptable to all our specific needs and quirks. Being able to automatically e-mail out our regular invoices is a great time and cost saver and the invoices look very professional."
