Gilligan Sheppard is a different kind of accounting practice that does more than just accounting. First we listen. Then we provide a no-nonsense, cut to the chase solution that will be tailored to each individual circumstance and need.
Gilligan Sheppard takes the time to understand each client and the particular challenges they face moving forward, given what they would like to achieve. We then methodically evaluate the options ahead, vigilantly considering the potential short and long-term outcomes, to ensure that you get the best possible advice.
We’re different. We challenge.
We consider. Then – we deliver.
We deliver that advice in a very simple, straight-talking manner that will always clearly elucidate the decisions that need to be made. Some of our clients have called it a breath
of fresh air. Which is quite fortunate, because we are not terribly comfortable operating any other way.
“Don’t take life too seriously – it’s not as if you’re going to get out alive.” Signs on our office walls will leave you under no illusion about the nature of the people you are dealing with. You’ll get the feeling that you’ve walked in on a close-knit and slightly loopy family. But make no mistake. Despite the quirky air we are a successful business that is deadly serious not only about our business and our client relationships, but also about the future. We have a track record of innovation; outsourcing compliance work, the introduction of auditing insurance, also the first and only female Chinese Partner in any Auckland accountancy practice.
Our clients trust us in a way that more conventional accountants will never be trusted. That’s why clients will meet Bruce in his bright orange t-shirt and bike shorts. Because they appreciate his honesty, knowledge and skill. The way he dresses – that’s just the wrapping. They know the real value lies inside.
