There is a significant difference between our business Gilligan Sheppard and traditional accountancy practices. If that seems like an extravagant statement to you, good. We planned it that way.
Conventional accounting practices struggle to solve the complex problems faced by the kind of people we work with—the curious, unorthodox, out-of-the-box thinkers, always open to alternative solutions.
Traditional accountants may not mesh with people like you. We see beyond the numbers and data. We get people and ideas.
You need a partner whose creative drive matches yours.
At Gilligan Sheppard, we are proud to be different. We do not want to be like anyone else. We do not want to look like anyone else. And we certainly do not act like anyone else.
We go beyond relentless form-filling and compliance, finding creative ways to solve your problems and help grow your business. We encourage a spirit of collaboration and innovation to produce workable solutions.
We want to know your story, understand your business vision and how we can help you achieve it. We will not be a passive accounting partner; instead, we will challenge you, fight for and alongside you, and do whatever it takes to achieve better-than-expected outcomes.
No one understands your business better than you, and for you, it is not just about making money. It is about expressing yourself, building great things and being proud of your innovations and successes. We love that. We believe in exploring diverse ways of doing things and love working with people who aren’t afraid to challenge the status quo.
People like you.
More creative. More collaborative. Less corporate.
If that is what you are looking for, then we’d like to work with you too.
At Gilligan Sheppard, a courageous and authentic attitude is essential to disrupting the status quo and creating a better future for New Zealand businesses.

You may have heard our CEO and founding partner Bruce Sheppard discuss ‘Newtopia’. It’s a revolutionary mindset that challenges conventional boundaries and offers a fresh perspective on embracing change, fostering innovation, and shaping a brighter future. This is what it looks like:
We want a world striving to improve and continuously thinking about improving each day and life. We want a world where collaboration trumps competition, and people participate honestly and openly by not being fake, relationships trump digits (money), and the good of something greater than self trumps self-interest. And all of this is supported by an environment where trust trumps fear.
Join us to create a better future for New Zealand business.
