About Us

A boutique tax agency and business advisory helping out smart clients across Northland, Auckland and the North Island of New Zealand.


We focus on what we do best - provide up front and uncomplicated tax and business advice to small businesses. We like to provide an alternative to the large 'big box' accountancy firms, and keep a personal service which doesn't have you bouncing from one staff member to the next depending on the month.


Owned and operated by Geoff Abbott, the Abbott Group takes advantage of over 30 years experience in business operations. Geoff often works as a sounding board or mentor for a number of his clients ranging from Wellington, the Bay of Plenty and up to the Bay of Islands and the Far North.


Our extended Group can take care of all of your core business needs, and we are in contact with a number of specialists when you're looking at finance, insurance or legal requirements.See also our "Your Business Doctor" services on www.ybdn.co.nz.
