The PwC Private Business team in the Waikato are very passionate about the region. With its central location, and large manufacturing and agribusiness sectors, the team sees Waikato as the land of opportunity.
We work with business owners and leaders across all industries important to our region. Our clients include small to medium enterprises, right through to larger corporates, not-for-profits, local government and tertiary institutions.
Our services include strategic planning, financial modelling and forecast, advisory, cloud accounting, annual compliance work, tax, and IFRS reporting. Being part of the wider PwC network means we can also provide solutions for our clients in every area from specialist tax advice through to business sales.
We’re all focused on helping our clients succeed and achieve their goals.
Supporting our community
Whether we’re ringing cowbells at Rugby Park, cheering rowers alongside our mighty river, or rolling up our sleeves for charity, we’re passionate about investing in our clients, our people and our community.
Here are some of the ways the PwC Waikato team support our people and community:
Duffy Books in Homes
The Alan Duff Charitable Foundation, better known as Duffy Books in Homes, proudly provides free books to over 100,000 New Zealand children, three times a year. PwC Waikato sponsors Forest Lake School and has donated funds to the School for the purchase of iPads. Some of our team also attend fortnightly reading sessions with the students at the School.
The PwC Financial Literacy Program (FLiP)
A new PwC initiative is the Financial Literacy Program (FLiP) which delivers introductory modules on money management to students at low decile schools. It covers topics such as budgeting and saving, how to assess financial risks and opportunities, making informed choices and where to go for help. We believe that by starting financial literacy education at a young age, students are given the greatest opportunity to grow their knowledge as they progress through schooling. The modules are delivered by PwC staff members who volunteer their time to the schools.
Young Farmer’s Leadership Programme
PwC Waikato has designed, developed and facilitated a leadership programme for Young Farmers in the Waikato / Bay of Plenty region. The programme focuses on building enriched leadership skills for New Zealand’s future leaders in Agriculture. The aim of the programme is to equip participants with the confidence and ability to lead, govern, understand and influence New Zealand’s primary sector and their own futures.
We also have staff who sit on the boards of a range of not for profit organisations to support the community.
"The PwC team was proactive and they had a clear focus on making life easier for us rather than imposing road blocks or barriers. We had confidence that they would always do the best for our business."
"PwC work with lots of different businesses and understand what could work for us. I think that’s been the biggest key, giving us ideas and acting as a sounding board, bringing their breadth of business experience to the table to help us.”
"We chose to work with PwC when our business got to a size and level of international complexity where we needed a firm with a leading reputation and global presence to help our company grow to the next level."
“PwC offer quality. The level of delivery and quality of service on offer means that it is more economical for me to utilise PwC, as opposed to employing my own staff."
“The PwC team has been instrumental in managing our cash flow forecast and keeping the accounts in order. Recently they’ve assisted us in obtaining a grant from Callaghan Innovation and given advice about key international markets from a tax and import perspective.”
