Marion Garlick joined Gilligan Sheppard in 2006 and was appointed a Director five years later. She has broad experience in taxation gained when working for Inland Revenue. In addition to her IRD experience, she has financial and management accounting proficiency.
Taxation, financial and management accounting, restructuring, estate planning and solvent liquidations are the areas Marion specialises in. She enjoys working closely with her clients to ensure they have the framework and support to develop and grow their businesses.
Marion is the Business Advisory Services (BAS) Director looking after compliance. The BAS team is made up of over half of Gilligan Sheppard’s employees. Services provided range from book keeping to a full set of accounts. Everything you imagine accounting to be – this is where it all starts and then feeds to our VAS and TAX teams.
Clients have stated that Marion Garlick’s advice has been critical. It ensures they are compliant with the IRD and have a good story for investors.
As a group, Marion describes Gilligan Sheppard as quite cynical, but clarifies it as honest cynicism. No fence sitting here, clients will never be under any illusion about how she feels about an idea or proposal. Providing resources for her clients, Marion is also very helpful in finding resolutions.
Gilligan Sheppard wants to be concerned with the provisions and use of accounting information for managers within businesses. Marion wants to provide them with the basis to make informed business decisions that will allow them to be better equipped in their management and control functions.
On the weekends Marion enjoys New Zealand’s beautiful scenery when walking our local tracks. She also supports the Warriors and follows the English Football League.
