The newly introduced R&D Tax Incentive is a fit-for-purpose scheme that will support a wide range of businesses to undertake more R&D says New Zealand’s leading accounting experts Tutbury & Associates Limited.

The Government has committed to raising New Zealand’s research and development (R&D) expenditure to 2% of GDP over 10 years. “This new tax incentive that aims to encourage further spending on research and development,” says Kelly Tutbury, Accountant and Managing Director at Tutbury & Associates Limited.

The R&D incentive scheme will be introduced on April 1 that contains more generous  tax breaks than billed at the Budget and businesses will have to spend far less to qualify. “The rate will be higher, the threshold lower, and the definition more inclusive,” says Kelly.

The 15% tax credit will be available from the beginning of a business’s 2019/20 income year.

Ideal for trades people, or anyone who wants to grow their business, Tutbury & Associates Limited offers expert services in compilation, financial planning, taxation, business accounting, family trusts and Xero bundles for their clients across New Zealand.

The key features of the R&D tax incentive include:

  • A $120 million cap on eligible expenditure.
  • A minimum R&D expenditure threshold of $50,000 per year.
  • A limited form of refunds for the first year of the scheme that will mirror the R&D tax-loss cash-out scheme run by Inland Revenue.
  • A definition of R&D that ensures the credit can be accessed more easily across all sectors, including the technology sector.
  • The inclusion of State Owned Enterprises, industry research cooperatives, levy bodies, and minority-owned subsidiaries of select Crown entities.

“If you want to find out more what the R&D Tax Incentive can do for you and your business, talk to our awesome and expert team today,” advises Kelly.

Leading Tauranga Accounting Firm Tutbury and Associates Join Forces with Employsure for an Insightful Seminar

By Ciaran Warner

Accounting firm Tutbury and Associates have teamed up with Employsure, an employment management company, to host a seminar on employment law and management, as a means of enlightening fellow business owners and reminding them of the do’s and don’ts of employment law.

Hosted by Employsure, the seminar details many of the pitfalls and small details often overlooked by businesses, particularly smaller ones, when it came to ensuring compliance with employment law when dealing with employees.

Among the many topics covered are health and safety, employee policies, the termination process, and personal grievances.

Kelly Tutbury, Managing Director and Accountant at Tutbury and Associates, said she welcomed the opportunity to work with Employsure, who have been advising Tutbury and Associates on their own employment management for some time.

“They’ve been really good for us,” says Kelly. “The best part is definitely being able to call them up about anything, at any time.”

Kelly says the seminar acts as a good add-on for clients, allowing those who attend to ask questions pertinent to their own business, and share some of their own experiences with dealing with employees.

Employsure pride themselves on being proactive, rather than reactive, when it comes to managing employer/employee relationships or disputes.

“We prefer to be the ambulance at the top of the hill, where so many companies are at the bottom,” says Alex Knowles of Employsure, one of the hosts of the seminar.

The next seminar will take place on September 5th, starting at 8:30am at the Trinity Wharf at 51 Dive Crescent, Tauranga.

Tutbury and Associates are a group composed of young accountants, who specialize in helping burgeoning businesses, and are dedicated to providing quality service and advice when needed.

New Zealand-wide accounting specialists Tutbury & Associates Limited are bringing a fresh perspective to accountancy.

At New Zealand’s leading accounting experts Tutbury & Associates Limited their motto is people, not just numbers’. “To me that motto speaks for itself, we are here to help our clients,” says Kelly Tutbury, Accountant and Managing Director at Tutbury & Associates Limited.

The expert team at Tutbury & Associates Limited is a great blend of innovative and youthful attitudes that is perfectly matched with years of accounting skill and experience.

“I think our business is different because of our staff and the philosophy that we have here. We try not to talk in what we call ‘accountanese’, which means we speak in plain English and that makes it easier for our clients to understand,” adds Kelly.

“The attitude of the team here in the office is all about having fun, obviously getting the work done but having fun at the same time. I think clients pick up on that vibe when they come into the office,” comments Kelly.

The part of the job that Kelly enjoys is helping clients with the problem-solving aspect. This is evident in something that they call ‘BFO’s’ which is the blinding flashes of obvious. “To us it might be a ‘BFO’ but often clients are too inside their business to see it. It’s about being able to articulate that to the client in a way they can understand,” advises Kelly.

If you are looking for a new accountant and not sure where to start, contact Kelly at Tutbury at “I always offer the first meeting to free so we can get to know each other, to make sure we can work together and to find out what they are looking for in accountant,” adds Kelly.

New Zealand-wide accounting specialists Tutbury & Associates Limited are your experts for payday filing.

Payday filing is compulsory from April 2019. New Zealand’s leading accounting experts Tutbury & Associates can assist you in this process making it hassle free.

“New Zealand employers will need to ensure they are compliant by 1 April 2019 to meet their payroll reporting obligations,” says Kelly Tutbury, Accountant and Managing Director at Tutbury & Associates Limited.

A New Zealand government initiative, payday filing changes the way businesses report on employee payments such as salary, wages, pay as you earn (PAYE) and other deductions. Through payday filing, payroll data will be sent electronically, directly to IR every payday rather than monthly.

If you’re a New Zealand employer paying more than $50,000 PAYE and Employer Superannuation Contribution Tax (ESCT) per year, you’ll need to file electronically through payroll software or myIR from 1 April 2019.

“This means that PAYE filing, always a manual task up until now, can finally be automated,” adds Kelly.

Making your life a whole lot easier, Tutbury & Associates Limited will work with Inland Revenue to get your payday filing sorted accurately and efficiently. “We can assist you with all your taxation needs and liaise directly with the Inland Revenue on your behalf,” advises Kelly. They can also take you through your income tax and provisional tax and will keep you reminded of your important dates.

Though they are based in Tauranga, Tutbury & Associates Limited are cloud-based so that they can assist you with payday filing no matter where you are across New Zealand.

Tutbury & Associates Limited will take the stress out of the day to day running of your business. They can tailor a package to suit the needs of you and your business or you can pick from one of their great standard bundles.

New payment methods to consider in 2018

A new year is the perfect time for business owners to set goals to improve profitability.

If you aren’t yet familiar with digital wallets and the latest mobile payment technologies, you might be interested in the benefits they afford small businesses, such as:

  • instant access to funds and real time financial data
  • cost savings on third party transaction fees and POS systems
  • competitive edge—making it easy for customers to pay quickly and securely on any device.

Here’s a quick look at a few emerging payment options you may want to consider integrating with your business in 2018.

Cryptocurrencies

If cryptocurrencies, like Bitcoin, have been on the periphery of your awareness, look out. These alternate currencies are fast becoming mainstream payment options for small and big businesses alike.

Large companies including Microsoft, Tesla, and Shopify now accept Bitcoin. For businesses trading in large sums, the pros of accepting cryptocurrency can be very attractive, such as:

  • no transaction fees
  • instant payments
  • no exchange rates or conversion fees
  • encryption technology (e.g. blockchain) ensures secure transactions.

The ease and affordability of using Bitcoin for global business transactions is a major reason small business owners looking to expand into foreign markets adopt this cryptocurrency.

Of course, any new financial technology comes with its risks. Some worry about cryptocurrency’s potential volatility, and the risk of loss in an unregulated system.

The best advice before investing in any cryptocurrency is to make sure you understand exactly how it works—then weigh all the pros and cons for your business.

To learn more, take a look at Inc’s list of cryptocurrencies to watch in 2018. If you would like to know more Bitcoin etc and how the IRD treat it, please feel free to contact the office http://tutburyassociates.co.nz/contact/

Next steps
As digital technologies bring us closer to paperless financial systems, it’s important you offer your customers a range of convenient payment options, so they aren’t tempted to shop somewhere else.

Ensuring your customers can buy from you using their preferred payment options, whether cash, check, debit card, credit card, mobile payment options, or EFT, will help you stay competitive, long-term.

It’s time to create a business plan with Tauranga-based accounting experts Tutbury & Associates Limited.

With the new financial year just beginning now is the perfect time to create a business plan, says Tauranga-based accounting experts Tutbury & Associates Limited.

“It is the time to start thinking about your goals and objectives for the new financial year,” says Kelly Tutbury, Accountant and Managing Director at Tutbury & Associates Limited.

The first thing to do is to focus on what’s most important for your business to achieve this year.

“Start by defining your top three business goals for the next four quarters,” advises Kelly. “Then break your goals down into smaller tasks. This helps to increase the productivity in your business while being able to celebrate the little successes that lead to massive changes.

If growing your business is on your agenda for the year ahead, then you will need to ensure that your business plan includes adequate financial planning. “An accountant can provide total financial advice and support as you update your business plan,” comments Kelly.

“A significant thing to keep in mind when writing your business plan is to figure out how you’ll stay competitive and how you can continue to attract new prospects and retain customers,” adds Kelly.

Take some time in your business plan to show how you’ll increase value for what you offer and how to stand apart from your competitors.

Though they are based in Tauranga, Tutbury & Associates Limited are cloud-based so that they can assist you and your business throughout New Zealand.

Is technology making you less efficient?

“For a list of all the ways technology has failed to improve the quality of life, please press three.” ~ Alice Kahn

If you feel overwhelmed by the sheer volume of technological gadgets out there, never mind apps and other digital “solutions”, you’re not alone. Technology sprawl and the rabbit hole of more and more information, available all the time, is making productivity—and healthy downtime—a real challenge for many of us.

Although we may be quicker at completing redundant tasks, more time is wasted managing all our different apps and technologies—and more of us live in a near constant state of distraction.

Maintaining focus on the job is increasingly difficult in the era of social media, chat apps, games, and the ability to search anything at any time—whether related to the task at hand or not.

Recent research shows that on average office workers switch between tasks roughly every three minutes. Half of those “task switches” were not because the phone rang or someone stopped by with a question—they were self-interruptions.

The same study showed that when an interruption is related to the primary task, it isn’t a problem for the worker to maintain focus when the interruption ends. But when people have to “shift their cognitive resources” to a new task, it takes longer to remember where they were, refocus, and regain momentum.

Online multitasking

Another source of distraction that costs workers time and energy is task switching on their computers. A University of California, Irvine study found that people who work at their computers switch between applications about 400 times per day.

If your team isn’t working across the same devices, platforms, and apps, imagine the increased inefficiency as workers waste more time dealing with incompatibility issues. For anyone moving between a number of decentralized apps during the work day the cost is mental exhaustion—which can lead to increased lack of focus and even less productivity. If you need help working on which apps are essential please contact us on http://tutburyassociates.co.nz/contact/ we will certainly help point you in the right direction.


The fact is, no matter how much we’d like to improve our productivity, multitasking is a myth; most humans can only perform one task well at a time.

If you must use a computer at work, to help minimize the temptation to check Facebook or random search, give ShotClock, a monotasking app a try—or Freedom, an app that blocks all digital distractions so you can focus on just what’s in front of you.

Another tip is to batch email rather than reading and responding to messages continually. Sending email twice a day—once in the morning and again in the afternoon—will train people not to expect to hear from you instantly, creating more reasonable (and sane) expectations. For our own personal and collective wellbeing, no one can or should be available to work around the clock.

Perhaps most important of all, be sure to unplug and rest your mind each day. And be good to yourself by taking a health break each year. A week or two of time off, away from work email and other stress-inducing distractions, will do more to increase your productivity than any app.
