Tax Owl Limited is a Tax Advisory, Trust and Asset Protection Services firm founded by Stephen Diedericks.
Stephen’s journey to accounting starts from his humble roots in Cape Town, South Africa. He obtained a scholarship from a South African company to study accounting. He relocated to Australia to complete his accounting studies (later relocating to New Zealand – yes, he followed a girl, his wife). While studying, he developed a passion for taxation. When Stephen started working full time, he also studied law, which complemented his work in tax. His accounting and law qualifications, as well as his practical experience, have helped him reach such a high level of tax knowledge and understanding.
Stephen has more than 20 years of tax experience both in New Zealand and overseas. He has worked for government tax departments, conducting tax investigations, tax audits and tax debt collection. While he’s a qualified CPA and practices as an accountant, he has been admitted as a Barrister and Solicitor of the High Court of New Zealand and a Solicitor by the Supreme Court of New South Wales in Australia. Stephen brings his CPA experience and knowledge of the law to your matters to provide workable solutions for you.
During his 20+ years dealing with all aspects of tax, Stephen has learned a thing or two. His local and international clients appreciate the time and money saving strategies he’s developed for them.
Stephen has a passion for helping individuals and businesses develop and protect their hard-earned assets. At Tax Owl, you’re not just a number to us. We’re not one of those accountants who make you feel like you’re just another client on their books. We actually take the time to sit down with you to find out what you really need.
