​Personal accounting, bookkeeping, tax and admin services

Easy access to support and mobile service  

Accounting Zero Plus provides personal service

AZP was set-up to give personal service that clients are happy working with and know they can call on when they need to.

Providing accounting and admin services to businesses and individuals through up-to-date systems and support for effective financial management.

In taxation our role is to ensure that you do not pay more than you need to and that you meet all the requirements for taxation. We also keep you up-to-date with what you need to pay and when. 

Based in Papamoa, we work with clients across the Bay of Plenty - we can come to you  - as well as clients nationwide.

Watch out for our car on the road and give us a toot.

Christine holds a NZ Diploma in Business (Accounting) and is an associate member of NZ Bookkeepers Association and the Accountants and Tax Agents Institute of NZ. She is a Xero Certified Advisor and Xero Payroll Certified, making her a specialist in all aspects of Xero and Xero training.

During her career, Christine has developed a wealth of practical experience in medium sized company accounting and in 2011 created First Class Accounts in Mt Maunganui with a business partner. This became a successful business, and Christine sold her part of the business in 2016 to enjoy more work/life balance.
