Leveraging the past to focus on the future
Between 1930 - 1982 Barr Burgess and Stewart was one of Dunedin's most established and respected accounting practices. Through various mergers and time the name was sadly replaced, however the 'client first' principles remained.
In 2018, Richard and Christine took the opportunity to reestablish this incredible Otago brand and all it stood for - reigniting our passion for clients and commitment to helping businesses grow.

Your business navigator
Let's be honest, running a business is getting more complex.

Leave some of this stress to us, tailoring our technology tools, advice and team to your needs and ambitions. We love what we do and want you to succeed.
We enjoy what we do and want to share our knowledge and enthusiasm with you with structure and strategy advice.
