What our Clients Say

NZ US Tax Specialists Ltd made the tax process simple and easy. They answered all my questions and eased my concerns. They were prompt and efficient to communicate with. Without a doubt, I will return to have them do my taxes next year! – MM, 11 May 2022.

Navigating the U.S. Tax system and ensuring I fulfill my obligations to the IRS and NZ IRD is no easy task – so I sought professional help. 

Gina and her team have been wonderful over the last few years. Very competent, helpful, and happy to explain what goes where and why. I would happily recommend NZ US Tax Specialists to anyone needing to file taxes etc in the U.S. Thank you again, Gina – TH, 4 March 2022. 

NZ US Tax Specialists Ltd services have been very professional and straight forward in helping me with compliance, preparing and filing my U.S. taxes. They have been excellent and prompt with any queries that I may have, and they have kept me up to date with all relevant correspondence.

I would highly recommend Gina and the expert staff, in providing excellent tax advice and services for all individuals and companies, in regards to their tax requirements – N, 29 January 2022. 

Kiwis with US-sourced income and Yankees resident or working in New Zealand have a lot in common:  dual taxation.  The two countries’ taxation systems are quite dissimilar and that which is taxable in one jurisdiction may or not be in the other – to say nothing of foreign bank reporting requirements.  Anyone who has faced these issues knows that working with and through them successfully is not for the faint-hearted.  Happily, this is the space in which NZ-US Tax Specialists thrives.  Their personal service is unmatched in my New Zealand experience, and their knowledge, far-sightedness, and thoroughly professional approach to clients’ needs give me cause to recommend them unreservedly – Dr WE Dunn, 1 May 2019

Our premium service is tailored to individuals, families, trusts and organizations that expect and appreciate highly personalised, discreet and professional tax services. These services are delivered by specialists who are technically competent in New Zealand and US tax law and financial regulations.

We offer three major categories of tax accounting and advisory services. All delivered by fully qualified, experienced in-house professionals:

  • New Zealand tax return preparation and filing
  • US tax return preparation and filing
  • International taxation advice

Clients who use both our NZ and US tax services benefit from our holistic approach to tax law compliance. However, we can tailor our service offering to meet your needs, attending to all your requirements personally since we never outsource.

Our strategies will reduce or limit the impact of taxes on your income, assets and investments while remaining fully compliant with tax law and financial regulations.
