who we are

Black Arrow Business Studio is an Auckland based accounting and business advisory firm. At Black Arrow, we revolutionise business services by shifting the focus from traditional standards to our clients’ unique needs and values so we can help them discover their potentials and scale.

Over the years, we have helped our clients achieve their success through our efficient accounting, advisory and bookkeeping services which were thoroughly designed to be ahead of time as well as to be scalable upon the needs of our client base.

Our services include:

  • Tax returns, GST returns, preparing financial statements

  • Management and system consultancy
  • Business bookkeeping services
  • Payroll & PAYE services
  • Setting up and implementing project/job management systems

Bach Tran, Black Arrow Business Studio’s founder, who has been an accountant, as well as holding senior management roles, for many years is deeply passionate about helping business owners make better decisions through the magical language of numbering and financial reports. After being asked by friends to help them with their business accounting because the accountants they had at the time did not deliver nor meet their support needs, Bach set out a mission to provide high-quality accounting and bookkeeping services that ultimately change the way businesses thrive while at the same time cost-effective due to Black Arrow’s highly efficient nature.

For us, accounting and bookkeeping is an integral part of every business operation and we would like to treat it with the respect it deserves. Among all aspects, harmonious chemistry between a business and its accounting team is crucial within a functional ecosystem. At Black Arrow, we collaborate very well with businesses to deliver not only accuracy but also highly qualified results.

Black Arrow has been a great support to our business since it started 3 years ago. We wouldn’t have the success we are currently having without their support. Highly recommend to any future potential clients

I procrastinated tax so bad I thought I was gonna be in a real bad place. I got in touch with Bach, he reassured me it wasn’t the end of the world and went about fixing me up and getting me back on the straight and narrow, couldn’t thank him enough, and it was so painless in the end. Fantastic guy, fantastic work ethic.

Black Arrow has taken away so much of the stress/worries I had around accounting! Bach has made all of the things I find complicated a lot easier to understand. Always super easy to chat to, helpful and incredible value to my small business. Thanks Black Arrow Business Studio! Highly recommend.

Would highly recommend Bach @Black Arrow for your accounting needs. Easy as communication, available day or night just a fb click away. Great rates and cost effective especially for small biz. I guess the word is “Easy to deal with” and “convenient”.

Bach from the Black Arrow is a bookkeeping saint! My overall experience with Bach and Black Arrow is excellent. Bach has made my life a whole lot easier looking after my books, giving lots of advice and introducing me to Xero. His team is very polite, professional, knowledgeable and prompt with communication. Throughout the entire year they will constantly notify and update you, Which gives you great peace of mind. I will support and continue my business with Black Arrow for years to come. I highly recommend Bach and Black Arrow bookkeeping.

I didn’t have an accountant for a long time, mainly due to fear based on horror stories about accountants I heard from my peers in my industry such as a lack of communication/explanation about tax, and some people suddenly getting told “you’re paying 50k in tax TOMORROW” by their accountant. Scary stuff. Black Arrow was the very opposite of those fears I had of accountants and helped us get our financials together to finally purchase our first home this year, which was a major goal for our family
