William has been in the field of Accountancy since 1973 when he started as a humble Articled Clerk at Longcrofts, Chartered Accountants, City of London, UK, cutting his teeth as an unsuspecting auditor.
After a few years auditing he moved into Business Services and Taxation in a medium sized Accounting firm, also in London.
In 1978 he emigrated to New Zealand and joined Bowden, Impey and Sage, Chartered Accountants, Auckland, where he developed the firm’s fledgling Audit Section. By 1983 it was time to “go it alone” and Crosbie & Co, Chartered Accountants was established in Auckland concentrating on Business Services and Tax.
William’s experience over the last 45 years covers the main stream core services such as Auditing, Taxation, Business Services, Receivership's and Liquidations and, in particular in Fiji, assisting new investors structure their new Fiji ventures within Fiji’s legal and statutory framework, as seamlessly as possible.
Now that Fiji office has expanded to 3 offices, William is also the Managing Partner but continues to specialise in new Investments, Taxation and Business Services.
