Review of Family assets
I have been very satisfied with the service provided by Long and Cowan since my Family Investments were handed on to them for taxation purposes. They keep me informed on current trends and possible changes, and things to be aware of. Their reports are always prompt and up to date. I have been most satisfied with their service and professionalism. I readily recommend them to others.

Annual Tax Assessment
Long & Cowan's handling of my tax affairs was up to their usual high standard. I have been using their services since 1994.

Very satisfied with your service
I am not in a position to operate my finances according to modern legislation which I find overly complex. Long and Cowan graciously accepted my portfolio and since they have taken over, from a law firm, I have been more than satisfied. Where I have had to make further decisions, they have given me sufficient time and information to do so. Their approach has always been clear and helpful.

Using Xero has greatly simplified our accounts preparation
Ben's suggestion that we move our accounts onto Xero has made for a win-win situation for both ourselves and Long & Cowan when our tax return is due.

Great professional service
Long and Cowan provided accurate, timely and important information relating to tax requirements. They went out of their way to research a difficult issue on our behalf and supported and guided us through an involved process of preparing and submitting accounts to IRD.

Remote Service
Long + Cowan's service is very good especially considering the fact that I am located in a remote (Marlborough) province!! I hope to continue the relationship - always bearing in mind at 93 years of age events may overtake us. I have been a client of the firm for over 26 years.

Secretarial And Accounting
As the Thorndon Mews Body Corporate we the committee and in particular the Treasurer received very good service particularly from Karin on general issues (internet banking and prompt responses to email and phone queries) but also Laura Tran and of course Ben Stockbridge. As treasurer I am happy with L&C's service. One aspect that may need looking at is a second quality check before issuing accounts in the standard format received out of zero which is not ideal for body corporates (eg a line stating Gross margin which is not relevant - being the same as Revenue) and checking the accompanying notes to the accounts which are not updated from the previous year in some instances.

We endeavour to provide your best service at all times but unfortunately in this instance we missed the mark when we overlooked the correct version of the Notes to the Financial Statements. We will take your suggestion on board and eliminate the redundant reference to Gross Margin.

Ben's encouragement for us to use Xero has made finalising our annual accounts much more straightforward than it used to be. We had the 2016 accounts completed before the end of May and we are happy with the invoice. A great experience.
