Why choose a Chartered Accounting firm?
A Chartered Accounting firm is controlled by Chartered Accountants. This means that they are bound by the professional and ethical standards required by the New Zealand Institute of Chartered Accountants (NZICA).
The structure and operation of the firm must comply with the rigorous standards determined by the Institute and is regulated by the disciplinary processes of the Institute, which are ratified by an Act of parliament.
Chartered Accountants are professionals and are up-to-date on the latest business issues and are committed to on-going education to maintain the level of expertise required of them.
