Xero Seminar

We recently held a very successful Xero seminar where we invited our clients to come along and see what Xero could do for their business. We invited a speaker from Xero to present the seminar and answer some questions for clients who were both on Xero and those yet to migrate.

Please remember that Talia Smith is our onsite technology expert, and is ready to speak to you about solutions for your business.

If you would like to attend any future seminars, please contact our office and we will ensure to advise you of the upcoming dates.

Protecting Your Online Security

A phishing scam is when a malicious email targets people by pretending to be from a legitimate company, like a bank, to gain sensitive information such as login credentials.


Check for malware. Firstly, you should check that malware has not been installed on your computer. You can do this by ensuring you have the latest security software. Update your anti-malware (anti-virus, anti-spyware) and run a full scan on your computer.

Make sure you get your anti-malware from a reputable source. Sometimes what can look like genuine software is actually malware in disguise. Malware is one of the easiest ways for hackers to get access to your device, so it’s important to take this seriously.


Reset your password. We strongly encourage you to change your password regularly. We recommend using a different password for different applications and turning off your password autosave.


Do not share your password. To keep yourself safe online, do not share your password with anyone. There is no need to share login details.


Be wary of suspicious emails. If you receive a branded email that is unusual or doesn’t look quite right, make sure you:

  • Do not click on any link or attachment contained in the email.
  • Do not reply to the email.
  • Delete the email
  • Keeping records offshore – IRD approval needed

    With the increasing number of taxpayers using cloud computing services, Inland Revenue has published a standard practice statement (SPS). The SPS is a guide to keeping business records in electronic format and sets out Inland Revenue’s practice when considering an application to store business records offshore. The amendments to the Tax Administration Act allows the Commissioner to authorise:

  • A taxpayer to store records outside New Zealand, or
  • A business such as a cloud service provider to store clients’ information in electronic format in a place outside New Zealand.
  • These amendments apply to businesses providing online accounting packages, data storage facilities or email services to clients whose business records are stored in offshore data centres.

    The storage provider for these individual taxpayers can apply to Inland Revenue for approval for this.

    If you need more information please contact us.
