About Us
Baucher Consulting provides a full range of individual and business tax advice.

We specialise in dealing with tax issues such as superannuation and pension scheme transfers, sales and purchases of businesses, property transactions, and overseas and foreign investments. We also assist with Inland Revenue audits and risk reviews – including GST, FBT and PAYE investigations.

Founded by Terry Baucher in 2004, Baucher Consulting keeps up to date with the latest changes with Inland Revenue and overseas tax authorities. In May 2017 Terry co-authored “Tax and Fairness” a book on contemporary tax issues and future solutions.

As leading tax experts, we regularly raise matters of interest through the press to increase awareness of topical issues and lesser known tax pitfalls. We make submissions on tax issues to Inland Revenue and provide commentary and discussion through media outlets such as the New Zealand Herald, the Dominion Post, Radio New Zealand and interest.co.nz., and of course, you can follow us on Twitter @BCLtax.

We take the worry out of dealing with complex tax matters. We consider our advice comparable to the “Big Four”, but affordable. We will also work alongside your existing accountant and law firm. If you have a tax problem that needs sorting, or you need tax planning for your business, trust or family, then contact Terry at Baucher Consulting today.
