Who We Are

A lot of people wonder how we got into US tax, and it’s a fair enough question when you’re based in New Zealand. When Gina’s accounting career led to a corporate role at Peace Software as Expatriate Tax Specialist, she was excited to combine her passion for tax with her love of all things American.

When she set up her own accounting practice in 2008, she soon realized there was a demand for her growing expertise in United States’ taxation. NZ US Tax Specialists was officially launched in 2010, focusing solely on taxes in only these two jurisdictions. The firm has gone from strength to strength, building a solid reputation for excellence.
