Chartered Accountants + Business Advisors based in Tauranga

Rachel Woods & Jaco Kapp lead +MORE Bay of Plenty.

Our team works with businesses right across the Bay of Plenty area to help them achieve their version of success.

What makes us different from other accountants in the area? Our depth of commercial experience. We’ve worked with a wide range of businesses, small to large, across various industries.

Our team finds many processes and techniques used by larger corporates that you can apply to small-medium businesses very successfully. Introducing businesses to tools like these can be game-changing.

Rachel Woods

PRINICIPAL

rachel.woods@plusmore.co.nz

Rachel leads the client relationships and the +MORE Bay of Plenty team to deliver results for business owners. Rachel’s depth of commercial experience sets her apart from other advisory service providers in the region. She supports clients to improve their business processes, policies, pricing, systems, and operational efficiency.

Before joining +MORE, Rachel worked for top-tier listed companies in an upper management/leadership capacity, providing them with best-in-class commercial support to grow their top and bottom lines through her unique approach to tackling and solving problems.

Rachel’s commercial understanding and attention to detail have led global brands to list on the New York Stock Exchange, all through to NZ small to medium businesses coming out of trouble and into success. Her immersive approach motivates Rachel to create tangible value for her clients.

Rachel has a Bachelor of Commerce in Accounting and Commercial Law from the University of Otago. She is also a member of Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand.

As a Mount Maunganui local, Rachel loves the beach lifestyle and the sense of community that comes with living in the area. Outside work, you’ll find her enjoying the beach with her daughter, throwing on the water skis, or relaxing with good food and wine.

Jaco Kapp

PRINCIPAL

jaco.kapp@plusmore.co.nz

Jaco leads the client relationships and the +MORE Bay of Plenty team to deliver results for business owners.

Jaco is a Chartered Accountant with over 20 years of diverse experience, including over a decade in auditing and leadership roles as the Head of Finance for multinational corporations. With three accounting degrees and a certificate in Public Practice, Jaco has accumulated invaluable expertise to provide practical guidance to clients.

Jaco’s passion lies in helping clients thrive and witnessing the achievement of their goals. His philosophy is grounded in the belief that when a business succeeds, it has a positive ripple effect on the entire community, ultimately contributing to the overall improvement of the New Zealand economy.

Outside work, Jaco’s schedule is packed with outdoor activities and adventures, thanks to his energetic 4-year-old twins and 7-year-old. In addition, he’s a competitive surfer, currently holding the title of Men’s Open Champion for the regional Bay Boardriders Club, which recently clinched the National Club Champs, earning them the title of the best club in the country. Beyond his family and surfing commitments, Jaco generously donates his time to various Non-Profit Organisation (NPO) Boards, actively contributing to important causes.

Sarah Connolly

ASSISTANT ACCOUNTANT

sarah.connolly@plusmore.co.nz

Sarah looks after accounts receivable and payable, Xero processing, preparation, and filing of IRD taxes and GST returns for clients. She enjoys working closely with Rachel and the team and getting to know our clients.

Sarah is currently completing her Master of Professional Accounting through Waikato part-time. She enjoys the accounting work at +MORE alongside her studies and is excited about her future in this industry.

Sarah’s four kids keep her busy outside work, and her extended family all live in the Tauranga area, which she loves. She also loves netball – playing, coaching, umpiring, reading, and the beach.

Jenny Jones

CLIENT SERVICES COORDINATOR

jenny.jones@plusmore.co.nz

Jenny’s responsibilities include reception tasks, office administration, handling new client onboarding, filing annual returns, providing Xero training and support, processing GST returns, and so much more.

Jenny has a Diploma in Business Accounting and has worked in CA firms for over 35 years, so she brings a wealth of knowledge to our team and clients.

Outside work, Jenny has two daughters who keep her on her toes. In her free time, she enjoys going to the gym, spending quality time with her husband, taking her dogs for walks in the park, and making trips back to Coatesville to visit her family and catch up with her good friends in Westie Land.

Anna Crow

PEOPLE & CULTURE MANAGER

anna.crow@plusmore.co.nz

Anna oversees the human resources function across the +MORE Group. She is responsible for recruiting, developing, and retaining talent and ensuring that our teams embody our company values and purpose daily.

Anna enjoys getting to know every team member and working with them and their manager to help them achieve their career goals. Seeing employees succeed is what motivates her!

Outside work, Anna loves spending time with her family. She has two teenage boys who love to get out and about – from multi-day bike rides in different parts of the country to catching the latest movie to board games on rainy days.

Claire Bryant

MARKETING MANAGER

claire.bryant@plusmore.co.nz

Claire manages our marketing activities across the +MORE Group. She is responsible for our brand across New Zealand and fuels our social media pages, website, content, communications, and client events.

What Claire enjoys most about her role is the opportunity to educate NZ business owners on how +MORE services can support them to grow their capability and achieve their version of success, whatever success looks like to them.

Outside the marketing world, Claire loves going for walks with a coffee in hand, socialising with friends, trying new food spots, and heading away for the weekends to explore NZ and abroad.
