Other tax changes in response to Covid-19

York Stone & Associates 316

In addition to the tax loss carryback scheme, the New Zealand Government has introduced a number of other tax changes to assist businesses and individuals to get through COVID-19. Currently, if an asset is purchased for less than $500 it does not need to be depreciated.

Emerging from Covid-19

York Stone & Associates 343

As New Zealand moves down the COVID-19 alert levels businesses face a long transition period from the unknown to the ‘new normal’.

Social distancing, strict health and safety guidelines, restricted international and regional travel are amongst numerous practises that will likely continue to apply for as long as COVID-19 remains a global threat.

Office Closed Notice

York Stone & Associates 288

The Yorke Stone Team hasn’t stopped since Covid-19 hit and we are taking this time to stop, get our energy levels back up and rest. 

We are back nice and fresh from the 6th of July 2020. Accountants: part time robots but mostly human. We thank everyone for understanding.

Annual Accounts year End Checklist

Nancy 683

Dear Clients,
This Financial Year arrived with a twist.
In less than 24 hours and with the help of technology the Yorke Stone team set up shop to work from 
our homes and ready to support you during the lock down. We continue to monitor the situation and
what the rest of the year will bring. 
The new Financial Year also present an opportunity to review the success or shortfall of your previous
business year. Please make time to go through this document, it is designed to capture all the
information the Yorke Stone team will need, to do your Annual Accounts accurately and efficiently. 
Use the checklist on each page as your guide, to identify what relevant supporting documents we
need you, to send back to our office. Each section will indicate what those documents are. Eg,
invoices, bank statements, working for family’s information, home office measurements, insurance
policies, hire purchase agreements etc. 
Please note, not all sections will apply to your business and put a line through the pages that do not 
apply to you.
To add extra value to your business, when we complete your historical Annual Accounts we should 
have a planning session. This session is an opportunity to “map your next business moves…” and
how to apply last year’s learnings to the business practise and goals of this financial year.
We look forward to working closely with you this year and thank you for your business last year.
Kind Regards, 
Dan and Nancy and the team.
