I need help with my accounting. Can you help?

Absolutely. We specialise in property accounting. That’s all we do.

That includes running your accounts and paying your taxes.

We can also help you decide whether to own your properties in a trust, look-through company or in your own name.

Talk to an accountant

Why would I use Opes Accounting rather than another accountant?

Property accounting is different from regular business accounting. There are more quirks to look out for (like chattel depreciation).

We focus on property accounting, that’s it. That means we’re well-practised and good at it. It’s all we do. We’ve seen what can go wrong and know how to fix it.

The other benefit is you get all your services in one place.

That means you’ve just got one company to deal with. All your advisers can talk to each other because they’re part of the same group.

That makes it easier and simpler for you to be a property investor.

How much does it cost?

Flat fee



  • We charge a flat fee of $1350 + GST for your first property in an entity (e.g. Trust or Company).

For every extra property?



  • Have another property within the same ownership structure? For example, if you own two properties in a Trust, you’ll pay $1,600 + GST.
There can be other minor costs, too. For example, you might pay for a Xero subscription or filing fees to the NZ Companies Office.

Is Opes Accounting right for me?

I should use Opes Accounting if:

  • I own investment properties.
  • I need help running my accounts.
  • I need help paying my taxes.
  • I want to set up a look-through company or a Trust.

I shouldn't use Opes Accounting if:

  • I'm not a property investor.
  • I want a regular business accountant (we specialise in property accounting. That's all we do).

Who will be sorting my taxes?

Marc Lemaire-Sicre is the main point of contact for most Opes Accounting customers.

He works with Ian Morkel, who heads up Opes Accounting. Ian is also a Partner at Kendons, a large local Christchurch firm with 40+ staff.

We’ve partnered with Kendons to kick Opes Accounting off. They’ve got a big team, which means we can quickly bring more people on board as we grow. That way, you get consistent service throughout the year.
