About Sum Total

Hayley Murdoch

Bachelor of Commerce • Member of the New Zealand Institute of Chartered Accountants (CA) • Associate of Governance New Zealand

I gained extensive experience in estate and trust financial accounting, management, trustee advisement, and structuring while managing the Trust Department at Duncan Cotterill, a leading New Zealand law firm.

Following that position, I worked with Trevor Thornton at Grant Thornton, a national accounting practice. During that time, I gained a wealth of experience in business turnaround, receivership and voluntary administration procedures.

I spent a large portion of my time working closely with small to medium-sized New Zealand businesses, assisting them through difficult financial times. I aided with the implementation of in-house systems, monthly management of financial information and reporting of results to directors and board members. These roles included providing corporate governance advice, implementing change, and liaising and reporting to financiers.

Since 2008, I have successfully grown my own accounting practice, servicing clients with twenty million plus turnover, individuals that require assistance filing their personal returns, and everything in between. I am happy to assist any size business, trust, or individual that requires my expertise and advice.
