A lot of these clients ask how to write a winning business plan. As accountants, you'd expect us to talk a lot about all the financial stuff. But it turns out that there are much more important things to include in your plan. We thought we'd share this video to help you think about what an investor really wants to see.

We are seeking a recent grad who has at least two years experience working in a New Zealand commercial role and wants to get experience in public practice.

If you want to work in a rapidly growing practice that is solely focused on helping businesses grow and succeed, then this is the opportunity for you.

We have modern, air conditioned offices close to all the motorways and just a hop, skip and a jump from the Mount Eden railway station.

The practice is 100% cloud based and we only use the latest software to ensure that we meet our clients needs.

Nearly all our clients are business people or high net worth individuals.
We are focused on helping our clients achieve their goals. We have lots of contact with clients and encourage them to keep in touch.

We don't micro-manage so there is considerable autonomy to grow and thrive. We actively mentor staff and we are totally committed to their success and career progression.

Generate Accounting is a CPA practice and we love to help our team members achieve their CPA qualification with study leave and tutorial assistance.

Job tasks and responsibilities include:

Answering client queries by phone or email
Proactive client contact including meeting with clients
Preparing annual financial statements and tax returns for companies, trust, partnerships and individuals
GST returns
Budgeting and cash flow forecasting
Preparing monthly financial reports
Advisory work

Skills and experience

You will be the sort of person who gets out of bed in the morning wanting to make a genuine difference to help clients grow their businesses and achieve their goals.

You'll get a buzz out of providing excellent service and you'll enjoy client contact. An outgoing personality is a must.

Excellent technical knowledge of financial accounting is required. You will have at least three years recent accounting experience within a New Zealand practice or have worked in a medium size company.

You'll enjoy preparing annual financial statements, income tax returns, GST returns, FBT returns, budgets and cash flow forecasts.

If you are currently in a management accounting role, those skills are becoming just as important to our client base as the focus is moving from compliance to advisory.

Excellent written and verbal English is a must.

You'll be wanting to commit to the firm as it grows and stay with us a while. It goes without saying that you will be a New Zealand citizen or permanent resident.

It would be highly desirable if you are Xero certified as we only use Xero in the practice.

You'll have a Bachelor's degree in accountancy.

You should either be CPA or CA qualified or studying towards one of those qualifications.

In return we offer an excellent salary and benefits.

Job benefits and perks

Car parking is provided free of charge.
We offer flexible working hours and the opportunity to work from home for part of the week.
Regular training is provided, including off-site training on tax and software.

We support life-long learning and offer financial support and study leave for team members who may wish to pursue additional qualifications.

AirBNB and GST

Angus Ogilvie from

If you're tempted to list your property on AirBNB, there are some issues around GST that you should be aware of. Recently we wrote a blog on AirBNB and GST to make people more aware of the potential impact.
