Business Advisory Services


At Macdonald Perniskie we offer many business advisory services. This includes:


Farm Accounting


Macdonald Perniskie works closely with the rural sector through day to day contact with our farming clients and community. We have a number of staff that own farms and come from rural backgrounds therefore have a working knowledge of how farms and associated finances work in the sector.

We offer software support for farmers including setting up and reporting from Cash Manager Rural and Cash Manager Focus, BankLink, Xero and associated add-on's.

Farm statistical information is provided for the past five years giving you relevant information to increase farm productivity. This can be compared to other industry based statistics for comparisons.

Cash flow reports are produced annually, monthly or when your GST return is filed and can be measured against projected budgets. Projected Budgets are used to set annual goals, determine future cash requirements and support finance applications. Actual cash flows are compared to projected budgets as these reports produce powerful information to track progress.

We provide services to prepare and file GST returns, Payroll and all other types of returns required by Inland Revenue. 

Our services aren't just limited to statutory reporting, we also provide assistance implemented with practical knowledge to facilitate succession planning, taxation of off farm investments and payroll and employment services.

Commercial Accounting


Macdonald Perniskie has a breadth of knowledge when it comes to commercial accounting from large corporate clients to small entities.
Our knowledge and experience will allow you to set up from ground level and beyond, enabling you to reach your expectations.

We welcome established businesses and look forward to developing a strong relationship with you to enable you to reach your goals and business strategies.

We are excited to help with new business start-ups and appreciate the difficulty of getting a business up and running. Our team will enable you to cut through the red tape and focus on what you excel at in your business.

Our team offers software setup and support for Xero and MYOB covering both cash books and payroll.

Certified Xero Support


We are a Xero Gold Partner and have 4 certified consultants along with other staff that use the programme on a daily basis. 

We provide one on one training sessions for Xero when requested, these training sessions are usually booked for an hour. If interested, call our office asking for Neilson to book an appointment, or follow this link    Message Us   and narrate the query "Xero training" and Neilson will be in contact with you as soon as possible.
We often get calls about training for processing coding and filing a GST return. Other clients as a result of pay-day filing are requesting training on Xero Payroll.

Any cost related to training can be organised with the Partner in advance on a case by case basis.

MYOB Essentials (Online)


MYOB accounting software has been used by our firm for many years. Their latest software is called MYOB Essentials and has an aray of online packages you can choose from. In summary:

Transferring from BankLink to Connected Ledger is a simple process. No bank authorisations are required if we already have access to your BankLink file. Connected ledger is accessible on both Apple or Microsoft computers.

MYOB Account Right


MYOB Account Right is software with business management capabilities.

It is ideal for businesses that need to:

There are various packages available depending on individual requirements.  They begin with the Standard package and advance to the Plus package which includes Payroll and finally through to the Premier package that enables the client to manage two company accounts.

Clients can improve productivity and efficiency, make IRD compliance easy and choose the plan that best suits their business needs.

BankLink Support


MYOB BankLink is supported by Macdonald Perniskie for clients who do not wish to move to cloud based software. 

Payroll Processing


Macdonald Perniskie have experienced payroll staff who confidently provide all payroll processing requirements.

Estate and Succession Planning


Estate and succession planning can be a difficult process if unplanned. We simplify the planning process and help you accomplish the succession plan no matter what type of business you have.

Monthly Budgets and Cash Flow Reporting


Annual and monthly budgets can be important tools for all commercial and rural businesses. Budgets can be completed with ease using any software we support. As the year progresses and your transactions are coded for GST purposes, we can compare actual cash flow to your projected budget, from there business advice can be formed and future planning undertaken.

Tax Advice


For all types of business and different entities, we prepare all statutory forms as required by the Inland Revenue including (to name a few) Income Tax, GST, PAYE, FBT, RWT and DWT returns.

We actively provide advice to our clients on tax planning and other issues.

IRD Compliance


Pay-day Filing has become a new challenge for clients who pay employees. This requires clients to now file Employee information within two days of that employee being paid. A client cannot file Employee information once a month like it used to be. In general, payment for PAYE is still paid once a month or twice a month for large employers. Any complications regarding this can be handled by Xero or MYOB payroll software or completed in house by our payroll staff. If a client wants extra training for Xero or MYOB payroll software we can facilitate training in this area. We can also provide training for other payroll software like IMS.

Financial Arrangements can be organised with IRD if our client or their entity requires time to pay their tax.  Depending on the situation it can be possible to purchase tax or fund it forward. If you have any questions regarding this just give our office a call, or simply email one of the parters.

GST Returns and Coding


We code and process your day to day transactions using Cashmanager, Xero, MYOB BankLink, Essentials, Account Right or by manual Bank Statements. Once processed, we file your GST return with IRD and when requested, print off a cash flow statement for your information.

Corporate Compliance


We ensure that our clients company’s are compliant with the current laws and regulations.

Including the compilation of all statutory resolutions and company records.

This includes the completion of all mandatory filing requirements of the Inland Revenue Department and the New Zealand’s Company office.


Trust Administration


We complete all aspects of trust administration including annual trust minutes.

Student Allowance


We provide advice on student loans and allowances. We can assist with competition of the application form and provide your most recent copy of Financial Reports and/or Tax Returns to ensure the Student Allowance application process is efficient. 

Independent Peer Reviews


We provide independent peer reviews when requested.
