Accurate, timely bookkeeping is fundamental to a successful business.

Are all your financial transactions correctly recorded? Are all your records accurate for tax purposes? If an IR auditor got in touch, would you have all the information needed to respond?

Don’t let questions like these keep you up at night. As experienced beancounters, we can record and organise all the financial transactions of your company, or advise you on how to use Xero to do your own bookkeeping to ensure your data is neat and tidy.

Let us help you make sure you don’t get the basics wrong.

Company Administration

Your company must comply with the requirements of the Companies Act 1993 – a big, complex piece of legislation. It governs the core features of how New Zealand companies operate, but many businesses don’t have the time or the specialist knowledge needed to keep up with it.

That’s where we can help. We’re familiar with the Act and what it means for your business.

We advise on the full range of Company administration issues or take the compliance work off your hands, including:

  • Preparing company minutes and resolutions, and related documentation
  • Filing annual returns
  • Holding and maintaining statutory registers including updates to directors and shareholders information, changes of address and share transfers.

Employer Services

Payroll & HR

Using payroll software takes the hassle out of paying employees and reporting payroll details to Inland Revenue.

If you prefer, we can act as your payroll intermediary or guide you on how to complete payroll in Xero yourself.

Getting your payroll right is vital, but there’s a whole lot more involved when you have staff. We advise and support on HR matters, including recruitment, holiday entitlements, and performance reviews.


For employers dealing with Fringe Benefits Tax, there are two main issues: are you following the rules, and can you prove it? Munro Benge can help you with both. Don’t wait for Inland Revenue’s specialist FBT audit team to knock on your door: contact us for advice on what to do, what not to do, and how to put the proper structures and documentation in place.

Business Management Solutions

Are you working in your business too much and not working on your business?

When you’re stuck in the weeds, pulled down by inefficient business practices and/or software that doesn't work for you, you can lose quality time, perfectly good money and a restful night sleep.

Having a suitable business management system to automate your workflow can allow you to oversee your business in one place, bringing together jobs, timesheets, invoices and reporting.

There are many great systems, but finding the right one and getting started with them can be a challenge if you’re not used to them. We can help you research and select the right tool for your business, including documenting and implementing the systems.
