"We are specialists in abrasive blasting and the application
of protective coatings and provide a range of services primarily to the marine
sector and NZ Aluminium Smelter. We've been operating in Invercargill since
1952 and our association with McIntyre Dick & Partners goes right back to
those early days. We've worked with various staff members there over the years
and consider them a very important extension of our business.
Not only do they look after all of our annual accounts and taxation requirements, but they have worked with us on a whole host of other projects including business planning and re-structuring, shareholders agreements, succession planning and business unit sale.
We find their input over a range of projects to be invaluable and we know we can count on the skill ranges across the entire McIntyre Dick team.
On a personal level, I've appreciated the sound advice and assistance I've received in the area of family trusts and asset protection."
"We've been operating our butchery for many years and supply a range of meat products to the retail and food service market throughout Southland. We're a family-run business started by my grandfather, Jack Flynn, in the 1930s and then run by my parents, John & Judith, and now by my partner Rachel and I. We employ 20 people at our plant on Otepuni Avenue in Invercargill
McIntyre Dick & Partners have been our accountants and business advisors for quite some years now! In general we've always found the team there very helpful and easy to approach and we've always had very satisfying outcomes from whatever it is we work on together with them.
We had a fairly major incident some years ago when we had a fire at our facility and we found McIntyre Dick & Partners to be exceptional in helping us deal with that immediate crisis and the aftermath of re-building the business and navigating the financial implications of all of that.
Over the years, McIntyre Dick & Partners have worked with us on many areas of our business growth, financing and through the various ups and downs, we find they always come to us with strong ideas for the business and help us get to where we want to go."
"Our family involvement in McKnight & Brown Menswear
goes back to 1955 when my father became a partner in the business when it was at
43 Dee Street .
Our connection to McIntyre Dick goes right back to those days, in fact. We've had, I believe, 5 changes of accountant within the firm over the decades and I have to say that the transitions have always been smooth and a natural evolution. The general stability within the company is re-assuring.
We find the team at McIntyre Dick to be available to us whenever we have any concerns and we value the advice we get, whether it's good or not such good news! Some words that come to mind when describing the company are trustworthy, real, integrity.
We would absolutely recommend them as accountants and business advisors."
"We run a dairy farm in the Lillburn Valley in Western Southland and milk over 1300 cows. Our family receives a complete suite of
accounting, taxation and business advisory services from McIntyre Dick & Partners.
In fact, they were instrumental in the formation of our business' advisory board,
which, in turn, has crystalised our plan for business continuity.
We find all the staff very professional in all our dealings and yet are
empathetic and understand our business and industry.
We would say that McIntyre Dick & Partners are a very important member of the advisory team we have assembled and add real value to our business in a variety of ways. In particular, the strategic business advice we receive is extremely valuable.
We involve them actively in the governance
structure of our business and a key element of that has been in building
financial literacy of our now adult children.
We would recommend McIntyre Dick & Partners services to other farming businesses (and have already done so) . Their understanding of the business of farming and expertise across succession, taxation, planning and strategy offers clients a forward-looking focus."
"We've been running Jimmy's Pies out of Roxburgh for over 50 years now and supply our pies to customers throughout Southland, Otago and South Canterbury. McIntyre Dick & Partners have been our accountants and business advisors for many years.
We've always found the team there to be very co-operative and nothing is a problem. As our business has grown over the years, initially employing 5 staff then 11 and now 38, we've found the assistance from McIntyre Dick & Partners to be particularly valuable in dealing with wages and keeping up-to-date with all things relating to employment legislation etc. As our business has grown we've also found the assistance in the area of taxation to be extremely important for our business and the team at McIntyre Dick have been excellent.
We would have no hesitation recommending them to other businesses."
