Financial statements are required by companies and trusts when the books are completed for the year. They provide a record of the financial activity of the company and trust. Financial statements although not required by sole traders or partnerships are useful documents to have. Financial statements are required by organisations who need information on the income you have earned. Institutions like banks require them before assessing you for a loan. If you wish to sell your business having properly prepared financial statements can add value to your business by showing clearly the financial results of the business.
At XA financial statements are prepared as part of your end of year books and are included as part of the service with our monthly service. Our financial statements are prepared to Generally Accepted Accounting Standards (GAAP) and conform with the legal requirements required under the financial reporting act.
Our monthly service provides you with a convenient and easy way to manage your accounts through out the year. Payments are split into monthly payments and includes a 10% discount on our annual fees. We can taylor a monthly package to suit your requirements.
Generally our monthly service will include:
- Xero subscription
- Monthly management reports
- GST returns compiled and filed
- 3 provisional tax reviews
- Ongoing IRD management
- Annual and Personal tax returns as required
- Annual financial statements
- Ongoing telephone support
Because your accounting fees are paid throughout the year there is no large end of year accounting fees to worry about.

A trust provides a valuable way of protecting the assets you have accumulated for the benefit of others. We are able to advise you on your options in regard to trusts.
Like companies trusts require end of year accounts, financial statements and tax returns. If your trust is simple we can provide services to deal with end of year requirements. Trusts that are complex may require more specialist services. We can advise on what your trust requires and when necessary refer you to experts if required.
