About Us

Based in the Waikato, CW Chartered Accountants tailor accounting services to suit the individual needs of SME businesses.  We help businesses develop their accounting skills and understanding, to empower them to better control their finances.

Business partner Sharon Crocombe-Woodward has over 15 years spent supporting business owners as a Chartered Accountant.  She understands the struggles of business-owners.  Sharon is joined by Michelle Weller, a Senior Accounting Technician and Certified Payroll Officer for CW Charted Accountants. 

A valued and trusted advisor to her clients, Director Sharon’s qualifications include a Certificate of Public Practice (CPP), member of the Australia and New Zealand Institute of Chartered Accountants (CA ANZ), Chartered Accountant (CA) with a degree in Business (B Bus).  Sharon started the business on the realisation that a lot of small and medium-sized businesses struggle with their accounts and pay people to do jobs they can do themselves if empowered with skills and training.

Sharon's vision for CW Chartered Accountants is to benefit businesses holistically through her accounting expertise and business experience. It’s horrifying to think some people are still doing their books the same way as 30 years ago!  

Michelle Weller joins Sharon as an Accredited Payroll Practitioner.  

Michelle grew up in Port Elizabeth, South Africa and moved to New Zealand at the beginning of 2008.  Prior to her move, Michelle held a number of Accounting positions in South Africa and in Botswana.

Whether your business has 5 or 100 employees, CW Chartered Accountants will help your business make your own informed decisions. We will train you and help remove outdated processes by in most cases teaching you how to use the software fully.  With an holistic approach, we will review  all aspects of the business from health & safety, insurance for the business & owners, advertising, software and strategy.  

The CW Chartered Accountants team of Sharon and Michelle love to pass their experience and knowledge on to clients.  Sharon has experience from employment in the commercial sectors, dairy industry, foodservice and not-for-profits. This includes being a Registered Business Mentor of New Zealand and a previous Board Member and Volunteer Chartered Accountant for a Charitable for dementia patients.

Working in public practice business advisory for large and small employers,  Sharon helped match suitable accounting and payroll software to clients and ongoing training to formulate good accounting practices for the business owners and staff.

Sharon would love to have a conversation with you about how she can empower you with knowledge and skills to make your business more efficient and profitable.  Click below to have a conversation with CW Chartered Accountants.
