Agribiz

Agribiz is far from your traditional chartered accountant practice.

We pride ourselves on being business advisers first and foremost with the traditional end of year tax and financial statement compliance being a by-product of a much stronger working business relationship between us and our clients.  Don’t get us wrong, we are good at crunching the numbers, but what gets us out of bed in the morning is the buzz of helping business develop, grow and achieve their objectives.

Agribiz was formed in early 2013 when Managing Director Craig Nevatt agreed with his employer, Sredle New Zealand that he would move from being a full time Financial Controller to being a part time contractor providing CFO and accounting services.  The relationship between Agribiz and Sredle continues today.

Being a sole practitioner, Craig decided to focus his skills and efforts on developing Agribiz into a well-known provider of professional services to the agricultural industry.  Over time Agribiz has become more focused on the dairy sector than other sectors of the agricultural industry.  However, Agribiz doesn’t just work with clients in the dairy sector.

We have clients in a variety of sectors including forestry, wine, retirement and entertainment, but we are experts in the dairy industry.

Agribiz currently provides a range of services to large players in the dairy industry:

  • CFO and accounting services for Dairy Farms NZ, which owns five dairy farms in Southland and two in South Canterbury.
  • CFO and accounting services for West Coast Dairy Investments which owns two dairy farms in Dargaville.
  • Company secretary and accounting services for the New Zealand investment company in Chilterra S.A.
  • Director of Chilterra S.A. a 4000ha dairy farming company based in southern Chile.

If you are a dairy farmer that wants to speak to a Chartered Accountant who understands what you are talking about, the pressure you are under, and owns a dirty pair of gumboots, then speak to Agribiz.
