"Our experience with Hamish and the team at Coombe Smith has been very beneficial to our business. Up to date advice on accounting matters, business oversight (such as business requirements for COVID regulations) and new company and trust structure - Exceptional.
"I have been a client with Coombe Smith over 20 years. I started with a small takeaway store but now have 14 stores throughout NZ and Australia. Every step of the way Coombe Smith was there for me and they are walking together with me now. Hamish is not just an Accountant but works as my advisor, my mentor and my friend. If you are just wanting an accountant he is not for you, but if you want an Accountant who is going to be your partner, Coombe Smith is the one you should be with."

"I value my relationship with Brent. Its great to be able to discuss my business with a person who is not afraid to say things that need to be said, but says it in a way which is positive has a way forward."
Graeme Procter- The Lychway Funeral Directors
"I have been with Brent and the team at Coombe Smith since I purchased my company in 1999 and in that time I have come to consider Brent and Coombe Smith as a partner in my business. Rather than being just my accountants, they have shown a genuine desire to see Wellington Office Products Depot prosper and grow, and Brent has always given me great advice and guidance. Brent has always been able to look at my business from a different perspective than me, and has therefore been able suggest a different approach or new direction. With Coombe Smith I don't pay an accounting fee, I make an investment in my future".
Sean O'Connor - Wellington Office Products Depot Limited
"As I wanted to move from a Partnership to a limited liability Company, an investor who I was engaged by recommended Coombe Smith to set up the new structure and attend to my accounting needs. I have never regretted that decision as they have always completed what they said they would undertake, at the figure agreed upon. In addition they bring a wealth of knowledge to the table, which is invaluable when I am planning a project or investigating a business proposition."
Mike Foulston - M-tek consulting
"When purchasing the business I had a myriad of accounting questions and issues to address during the start up phase. Reassurance and direction provided by Hamish prompted the email response to one of the quick fixes of "You are a rock!."
Kerry Queenin - Lawyer
"Being new to owning a business, Hamish and his team have helped me in many ways and offered great advice when necessary. It can be a very daunting task faced with your GST and Tax returns, but Hamish has always made himself available, often at short notice, to talk me through and explain things to me. I would recommend Hamish and Coombe Smith to anyone new to the business world".
Gerry Keating - Pokerfun NZ
"Hamish has become an integral part of our growing business over recent years. His tax advice has navigated us successfully through various livestock and land transactions. We relied on him to allocate our cows to the appropriate livestock schemes and to see us transition as a business entity from a Partnership to a Family Trust. We value Hamish's integrity and respect both his professional and personal opinion".
