Business Planning & Benchmarking


New Ventures


Starting a business can be scary and very often you don’t know what you don’t know, until it’s a problem.

We can help you to write a business plan and structure your business to best suit your goals, your personal circumstances and your industry.

We’ll help you implement systems, advise you on invoicing, terms of trade, contracts, pay roll, KiwiSaver, HR, PAYE, ACC and GST and the myriad of details you need to know to operate a successful business.

We’ll explain everything in plain English and will be in touch regularly to see how you’re doing and to help resolve any challenges you’re facing.

Growing Your Profits


It’s so easy to get caught up in the day-to-day details of running your business that you forget to work on the business.

Too often, the mentality of “we do it that way because that’s the way we’ve always done it” can keep you from capitalising on newer or more profitable ways of operating.

At MAQ Chartered Accountants we’ll help you to take a step back and look at the big picture. We can provide benchmarking so that you can compare your performance against similarly sized and positioned businesses. We’ll identify what you’re doing well and new opportunities to work smarter and more profitably.

With regular business planning and coaching, we’ll help you take your business to the next level. This can include producing cashflow forecasts to help with securing an overdraft, finance or refinancing or assisting with an acquisition or merger.

We also have experience with succession planning, exit strategies and preparing your business for sale.
