Flashpoint Accounting Limited was established in 2010 with Luke Canton as sole director. After working a number of years in New Zealand and overseas for other accounting and banking firms, Luke decided it was timely to set up his own accounting business; drawing on his wide-ranging experiences as an accountant and private business operator including being personally involved in businesses in the building and construction industry, boat cleaning and hospitality industries.
Luke hails from Whangaparaoa, Auckland and now calls magical Mangawhai home, where he has lived with his three children for ten years. "I believe in community spirit having spent years as a volunteer lifeguard, and now being involved in a number of sporting and community groups, including terms on the Board of Trustees at Mangawhai Beach School. I enjoy swimming, boxing and paint-ball in my spare time" says Luke.
At Flashpoint Accounting we aim to deliver a more relationship-based service than many accountancy firms, as this is how we enjoy doing business, and feel that this approach provides the best value to business owners.
Luke is a member of the tax agents institute of New Zealand and adheres to their ethical standards as well as their ongoing educational requirements.
