Hayden Bartz

Business Advice, Manager, Waikato

I joined Baker Tilly Staples in 2012 after moving back to New Zealand from the UK and I have 7 years accounting experience covering both business advisory in New Zealand and industry experience in the UK.

I grew up on dairy farms in and around the Morrinsville and Matamata area and this has given me a lot of hands on experience, helping my dad and brothers whenever possible.

I am currently leasing a dairy farm in partnership with my brother. Our farm, on the outskirts of Matamata, is home to 220 milking cows. Key to maintaining both a business and family relationship with my brother has been communication.

My passion for both numbers and cows, has allowed me to add value to my own business as well as that of my clients.

I provide advice to a wide range of commercial and agricultural businesses including corporate farmers.

I have significant experience in a range of accounting software packages including MYOB, Xero, Banklink, Cash Manager Rural, Caseware and SAP.
