Auctus Advisory (Piako) Profile

At Auctus Advisory (Piako) (formerly Fenneman Accounting Ltd) we can trace our firm's roots back to 1944.

Each client is individual and has different needs, and we tailor our services to suit their requirements. Our talented team of accounting professionals have over 100 years' experience amongst them  -  not only in accounting but in business as well.

We employ the most up-to-date accounting systems and processes which allows us to provide to our clients the best accounting service possible. It also means that you don't have to be local to be a client.

Being based in rural New Zealand, means that the majority of our clients are farmers.  We also cater for all types of businesses - no client is too big or too small.
