CW Chartered Accountants Limited was formed in April 2017 by the Director and Chartered Accountant Sharon Crocombe-Woodward. The firm offers the standard compliance services encompassing a hands-on approach, so as the business grows the owner’s knowledge builds also.

We are members of the Australia and New Zealand Institute of Chartered Accountants (CA ANZ) and are bound by the Institute’s Code of Professional Ethics. Sharon holds a certificate of Public Practice (CPP) and is a member of the Australia and New Zealand Institute of Chartered Accountants (CA ANZ). She is a Chartered Accountant (CA) with a Business Degree (B Bus)

Raised on a Waikato farm as one of five children, Sharon became aware then of how the weather, global demand and politics impacted on the farm. This unpredictability of livestock values, feed shortage and timing to buy or sell animals meant a cash flow was critical to enable decision making and the long-term survival of the farm.

A wealth of knowledge existed from her late father’s own experience, but he always noted the importance of the trusted rural network. The accountant, the stock agents, fellow farmers and in the early days the Reserve bank were an invaluable source of the current economic climate. Sharon now wishes to ensure a professional network of advisers are available for her own clients.
