"I found IBBZ to be very helpful throughout the process of sorting out my tax debt, and would recommend them to anyone I know who are in a similar position as I was."
"IBBZ accounting have helped me and my business out of what looked like an impossible situation. They took over all negotiations with IRD and were able to put together an agreement and payment plan that met the requirements of IRD and that I am able to commit to. At the same time they were able to negotiate some major tax relief that my previous accountant never tried to do. Going forward Saurav and the team have given me a structured process that ensures we never get in trouble again. I can not thank the team enough and recommend them as the first and only call you should make if you are facing IRD issues or just need solid accounting advise. "
"1. Excellent advise on accounting and tax related matters (Specialized Advise).
2. Pro-active and consistent follow up with advise and assistance.
3. Very satisfied with work done and advise provided.
4. Good performance resulted in substantial tax savings.
5. Special gratitude to Saurav and Ravi for their professionalism in advise and performance.
6. Took upon themselves the stress which I would have gone through in my busy schedule."
