Nicky Hansen – Owner/Accountant

Only two things in life are inevitable; life and taxes.  I figured I might as well make taxes as easy as possible… Did you know Mick Jagger, Janet Jackson, Robert Palmer and John Grisham studied accounting?  While I am no rock star or bestselling author I pride myself on providing knowledgeable, sound, and easy to understand advice that won’t break your bank.

I have been involved with accounting since leaving school and have over 20 years’ experience.  After working in a chartered accountants I decided there had to be a more relaxed affordable approach for meeting peoples accounting needs. I believe because we are approachable we have an easy rapport with our clients.  I embrace our one on one boutique approach, keeping things both professional and personal.  I enjoy helping people feel comfortable with their accounting and tax needs and working with them, incorporating an approach that isn’t one size fits all.

I became a partner and rebranded NATCO in 2004 after working my way up over six years.  In 2014 I moved the business to my premises to keep costs down and have been successfully running the business independently since my business partner retired in early 2016.  As a member of atainz (the accountants and tax agents institute of New Zealand) I follow guidelines and attend regular meetings and annual conference.  Keeping up to date is essential to provide my clients current useful information.

Outside of the office I am with my family.  We love camping, beaching and travel.  Living in Northland provides us with wonderful places to explore.  My better half and I enjoy classic cars and hot rods. You may notice our 1947 Ford Jailbar in the carport.  In my spare time I enjoy reading, word puzzles and learning to garden. I love our loop at the town basin and that Parihaka is just at my back door.

I support small business wherever possible and refuse to become part of a franchise or outsource to other countries and regularly make donations to support local charities and incentives.  Thank you for taking the time to visit our website.


Kelly Burr – Receptionist

Hi, my name is Kelly, I am the receptionist and also Nicky’s right hand girl.  I will normally be the first face you see at the door and the first voice you hear on the phone.  I came to Northland Accounting & Taxation Co. Ltd in 2010 from being a stay at home mum before that.  Over the years I have been here at NATCO I started as the humble receptionist with added duties such as typing up financial statements and processing tax returns.  As my experience has grown over time I now also prepare rental statements, GST returns and financial performances.  As my knowledge has grown from year to year with enthusiasm and interest I am now studying different aspects of accounting to help enable me to be more helpful to our current and future clients.

Outside of the office my husband Mike and I have four children between us with two still under our roof.  We enjoy fishing with our longline, not to necessarily catch the fish (we are not very good at that) but for the aspect of sharing family time.  Our girls play hockey so are often busy with practices and games but Sundays are usually saved for mucking around with our cattle on our small lifestyle block or heading to our back yard…..THE BEACH!!!
