Leading professional services firm, Deloitte, has recently opened a new office in Tauranga, marking a significant step in its continued expansion across NZ.

Deloitte’s “why” is to make an impact that matters – for our clients, our people and our community. The opening of our new office allows us to scale up the impact we are making in the region already, bringing more choice to businesses operating here and creating new opportunities for our people. Our new office in Hamilton St in the CBD is led by Partners Andrea Scatchard (Tax and Business Advisory) and Paul Shallard (Consulting), who both live locally.

Reflecting the high levels of growth experienced in Tauranga and the wider Bay of Plenty region in recent years, our decision to establish a physical presence in Tauranga aligns with our commitment to be at the forefront of industry transformation and to support regional growth.

Like the introduction of cloud computing before it, the rise of AI will be a huge disruptor in the way we as professional service providers work with our clients. AI will put more power in the hands of business owners and management by automating time-consuming and routine tasks, including simple reporting using the many tools that bolt on to cloud-based accounting systems.

As accounting service providers, this provides us with the opportunity to focus on more complex and value-adding services by using our real-world experience to provide insights into the financial data and work alongside business owners and management to develop tailored business solutions.

At Deloitte, the provision of Virtual Financial Services has grown out of this transformational change in the accounting industry, and this is one of the key strengths of our Tauranga team.

What are Virtual Financial Services?

Traditionally, small and medium-sized businesses have relied on in-house finance teams to handle all of their financial matters. However, this approach can be costly and impractical for many companies. Virtual Financial Services offers an alternative solution by providing businesses with outsourced financial expertise without the need for a full finance team on the payroll.

Virtual Financial Services involve engaging a team of experienced financial professionals specialising in strategic financial planning, budgeting, forecasting, financial analysis, tax planning and overall financial management.

How do Virtual Financial Services Work?

Deloitte Virtual Financial Services typically operate on a subscription-based model, allowing businesses to choose a package that suits their specific needs and budget. Our team works closely with the business to gain a deep understanding of its financial and operational goals.

After conducting a comprehensive financial analysis, we work with you to develop a customised financial plan tailored to the business’s objectives.

The benefits of Virtual Financial Services include:

  • Cost-effectiveness
  • Access to external expertise
  • Scalability as your business grows and matures
  • Allows you to focus on core competencies
  • Brings an independent and objective perspective to your business
  • Provides expert risk assessment and management.

If this sounds like something that would benefit your business, or you just want to chat about the wide range of other services that Deloitte provides, please get in touch – we can’t wait to talk with you. We are in our Hamilton Street office until Q2 2025 when we will be moving to the wonderful new Northern Quarter complex right on The Strand.
