Auckland E-Team member, The Business Advisory Group, has been named as one of the top 30 accounting firms in New Zealand by the Sunday Star Times for the second year running.
The ranking originates from a survey of accountancy firms carried out by Chartered Accountants Australia & New Zealand (CAANZ) in partnership with Fairfax media.
The firms listed in the Top 30 are measured on three core areas – adaptability/agility, emotional intelligence and critical thinking.
CAANZ launched the Top 30 list in 2017 to highlight the expertise in the accountancy sector.
Peter Vial, the New Zealand country head of CAANZ, said the accountancy profession was changing in the face of digital disruption.
“Accountants are moving away from just doing the numbers,” Vial said. “Yes, people will see their accountants about those things. But they will also be seeking strategic planning advice, valuation advice. It’s an ongoing relationship.”
