About Us

Our History

Since our founding in 2004, Baucher Consulting has built a solid reputation by providing consistent, robust service to businesses and individuals. Our mission has always been to take the worry out of tax matters. We’re able to provide individualised, strategic solutions to our clients by keeping up to date with the latest changes at Inland Revenue and overseas tax authorities. 

We’re passionate about sharing our insights, regularly raising matters of interest through the press to increase awareness of topical issues affecting the public. We have a track record of using Official Information Act (OIA) requests to deepen our understanding of tax law implementation. We make submissions on tax issues to Inland Revenue and provide commentary and discussion through media outlets such as New Zealand Herald, The Dominion Post, Radio New Zealand, interest.co.nzTVNZ and Stuff.

Our People

Terry Baucher

Managing Director


Terry Baucher is on a mission to help clients achieve the best possible tax outcomes and ultimately, peace of mind. His specialist areas of interest include cross-border tax, FBT, Inland Revenue audits and the sale and purchase of business assets.

Terry understands that tax law can be abstract, confusing and downright daunting. Recognised for his thought leadership, Terry is committed to demystifying complex tax issues through regular articles, media commentary, seminars and his weekly podcast, “The New Zealand Tax Podcast”.

His 2017 book “Tax and Fairness” co-authored with Deborah Russell MP, is a lively analysis of New Zealand society through the lens of tax law. Written in plain language, it explores the implications of current tax law and proposes new ways to think about taxation moving forward.

Terry’s professional memberships include the Accountants and Tax Agents Institute of New Zealand (ATAINZ). It represent SME business clients and make proactive representations to Inland Revenue regarding tax legislation that affects business owners. He is also a member of the British Chartered Institute of Taxation and the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) and the Government Small Business Council (August 2018).
