About Us

Empowering Businesses

VBW Chartered Accountants has helped Taranaki businesses grow since 1985. We have experience in a wide range of industries, with a particular emphasis on trades. Our goal is to empower you with knowledge and insight so you can take control. The complexities of today's businesses need more than an everyday accountant. That's why we pride ourselves on being your confidante. Someone that you can bounce ideas off of – big picture stuff that a routine bookkeeper may not be able to provide. And then, we help you map out a plan to reach those lofty goals. We always say that advice is our core service. We're here to listen to your challenges and guide you through them. You'll sleep soundly at night knowing that everything has been done right. Your business is secure and there are no nasty tax surprises coming. Our goal is to make your business easy to operate and profitable. By leveraging the power of cloud accounting tools, you will always know where you stand. Let us make sense of the numbers so you can turn your attention back to the actual business. Contact us to learn more about what we can achieve together.
