The Business of Tax - Podcast Series

There is the business of tax, and there are tax businesses. Tax Management New Zealand values our relationship with our tax agents and accounting firms – together we help build each other up. In the spirit of this collaboration, Tax Management New Zealand is bringing tax agents a series of 20 podcasts that explores questions around how to build a better advisory business in disruptive times.

Unquestionably we are living in a time of disruption, and it’s not just Covid-19 and a rapidly changing regulatory landscape. We have changes in client behaviour and needs, and advances in technology – such as real-time data – that are changing the advisory business landscape. We trust this podcast, and the experts we interview, will help you not only navigate but prosper through these times.

TMNZ has rounded up a group of experts in their field. They’re here to inspire, educate, and inform you on your business and tax.
