Joanne Scott CA

I am a Chartered Accountant based at Whangapoua Beach on the Coromandel Peninsula.
My family & I have lived at Whangapoua since 2003 and love the beach lifestyle.


I qualified with the National Certificate in Business Studies (NCB) in 1990 & graduated from Lincoln University with a Bachelor of Commerce & Management (BCM) in 1992. I became a Chartered Accountant in 1995.

I created this tax agency service in 2012, have held a certificate of public practice since 2014 and achieved recognition as a qualified auditor in 2015.

Work Experience

I have worked for Accountancy Firms in Hamilton and Whitianga and spent 10 years in the manufacturing industry with the Gallagher Group in Hamilton and also work part time in the not-for-profit sector: I have been the Financial Controller for the Coromandel Independent Living Trust since 2011.

I have a wide range of experience: treasury management, human resource management, taxation, product costing methodology, budgets, forecasting, management reporting, financial statement compilation including worldwide consolidations, funding applications & accountability reports, development & documentation of policies & risk management.
