With a dream to franchise and eventually take his business internationally, Lee from Auckland’s Wok’n Noodle knew he needed the right kind of accountant. One to guide him, who knew what they were talking about and had the skills to implement his plan.
DFK Oswin Griffiths Carlton was the perfect fit.
The New Zealand business opened its first restaurant in 2005 in Mt Eden. After its success, Lee later opened a second location in the CBD.
Big business resources with small business values
One of the main attractions of DFK OGC for Lee was its size.
“It’s not so big that you feel like just another number, but it’s also big enough that they can cover everything I need.”
“I feel comfortable with the fact that as my business grows, DFK OGC will be able to handle the demands that come with it.”
He said DFK OGC’s approach of having the partners work closely with him in all aspects of the business, from everyday things like GST and PAYG tax to larger things such as company structure, has been great.
“A huge challenge I am facing at the moment is franchising my brand. It is a rather difficult process as it involves changing the structure of my company. DFK is helping me do this.”
“Down the track, I would also like to take my brand to Australia. These are two things that involve very skilled and experienced accountants. I have full faith in DFK and its abilities and I know that when the time comes, it will guide me in the right direction.”
While Lee works closely with Anit Patel, he loves that different partners in the firm who have different speciality areas, from overall compliance reporting, accounting functions and business growth, are available if he needs them.
Trust is key
Unlike some accountants that may look for quick, band-aid fixes, Lee appreciates that DFK OGC does not.
“They will ensure any issues you may have are dealt with properly and professionally so that they can’t arise again in the future.
Trust and communication are very important when it comes to the relationship you have with your accountant – I have both of these with DFK.”
Lee feels very comfortable with DFK OGC and enjoys the convenience of getting all his business advice from one place.
“The people at DFK OGC are very kind and great at what they do.”
“Their range of skills means that I am able to grow my brand and continue to get all my accounting and business advisory in the one place.”
“I feel very safe and secure with them and would definitely recommend them to anybody.”
