Smartz Tax Tips

Smartz Tax Tips

Even with the onslaught of impending doom and gloom, through an alleged nationwide recession and an ever attentive tax department, a NZ Chartered Accountant and Professional Speaker has chosen to swim upstream and against the current by enlightening the small and medium business owner as to their legal requirements and the common unclaimed or unused options when it comes to tax in New Zealand.

In a time where compliance costs are rampant, belts are being tightened and the faces of many business owners are grim at best, Martz Witty of Martz Limited has chosen to take on a nationwide speaking tour enlightening the ‘normal’ NZ taxpayer as to their entitlements and their obligations.

“It’s not about doing anything dodgy, it’s about being informed and knowledgeable, making the right decisions and being proactive” says Martz Witty. The seminar lasts 3 hours and is delivered in a humorous way yet has a punchy and deliberate message.
