Richard AshbyPartner, Gilligan Sheppard

Richard has had over 30 years experience with NZ taxation, and particularly enjoys dealing with land tax issues and the GST regime. He deals with clients of all types and sizes and provides tax opinions on the appropriate treatment of items of income and expenditure, assists clients with IRD risk reviews and audits and can assist clients who are having difficulties meeting their tax payment obligations to make suitable repayment arrangements with the IRD. Richard also provides cross-border tax advice, both to existing clients looking to expand their operations offshore, and to offshore persons looking to either establish a NZ presence for their business or to relocate themselves personally to NZ more permanently.

Richard strives to maintain a good work/life balance and outside of the office enjoys spending time cycling or playing squash, or just hanging out with the family Lisa and his four children.
