Business Advice and Accounting Services

New Plymouth Chartered Accountants

Overlooked by Taranaki Maunga, our New Plymouth office used to be run under the name EFS Accounting, and forms part of the wider Auctus brand.

Our New Plymouth Chartered Accountants and Small Business Advisors joined the Auctus team in 2020 to facilitate our engagement with clients on the lower West Coast of the central North Island. We’re proud to be investing time in the continuous success of our clients and celebrating their achievements with them.
