    We are your local Chartered Accountants and business advisors, working closely with businesses throughout Hawke’s Bay and offering a large range of services for a variety of clients and business types.


    We deal with not just taxation and compliance issues but also offer services to help our clients achieve their goals and improve their performance and profitability.


    Starting up in business for many people is an adventure into the unknown. Small businesses make up 97 percent of all businesses in New Zealand. These businesses make a significant contribution to our economy. Having started this practice from scratch we understand the importance of being able to access advice and information in a manner which is easily understood from a team who are available and responsive to your personal needs.


    We offer the depth and breadth of services of a major accounting firm but, by being a smaller local practice, our main strength in having direct contact with our business clients in an informal yet professional environment.


    While our prices are competitive and affordable our clients benefit from our local experience and over twenty years of financial knowledge.


  • Our Services

    At Cary Mossman we'll help you manage every aspect of your business and because we spend time establishing a personal relationship with each of our clients, our advice is tailored for your business. We provide you with advice when your business needs it, not just when you ask for it.

    Tom Brummer

    Kinchana Investments Ltd.

    My property rental company became a client of Cary Mossman Ltd in 2002 arising out of a recommendation from my solicitor. My reasons for making this change then were; exceedingly long processing times of my accounts until lodging with IRD and excessive costs by an otherwise highly capable accountant. During my time with them I have found Cary and Jane very prompt, efficient and alert to any financial and accounting issues, resulting in practical advice to me. I like the way the practice is organised and managed, it gives me confidence and comfort. I have found them solid and not interested in any risky accounting practices, which suits me. We have developed a friendly and valued relationship. I have also recommended Cary Mossman Ltd to my best friend which he has done with every satisfaction.

    Ann and Robert  Lang

    Robert Lang Builders Ltd.

    Six years ago we changed accountancy firms. Right from the start we felt that we were in extremely capable hands. Affordable accountancy and being able to freely phone to ask questions was top of our list. Cary and his team have delivered on all levels. They are always giving of their time and are only too happy to simplify complex accounting into layman's terms. We have appreciated the variety of expertise from dealing with Fran at front desk, Jane (accounting) to Carolyn (GST) as well as Cary Mossman, the Principal of this firm, who has guided us with ideas and suggestions going forward at the conclusion of each financial year. We can't speak highly enough of Cary Mossman Accountants. They truly care about our business and are wonderful to deal with.
