Meet the Team

Dean Affleck

Dean is the founding partner of Affleck O’Meara. Born and bred in the South Island, and living in Cromwell with his family, Dean has strong roots in the community.

He studied at both Victoria and Otago universities, working with the IRD in his early years before translating his extensive tax knowledge to helping everyday New Zealanders with their personal tax and small businesses.

Dean is a trailblazer of the New Zealand tax industry, pioneering the Tax Refunds Company in 2007, the first of its kind in our country. Since its launch, it has returned over $200 million to New Zealander’s pockets. His newest business is looking to do the same with businesses paying ACC.

Dean’s hunger to revolutionise the New Zealand tax industry has resulted in another successful business venture. FreshTax is targeted at small business to provide small businesses with key information that they need to thrive—at competitive prices.
His continued motivation to revolutionize the industry promises an exciting future for Affleck O’Meara and all new business ventures he decides to spearhead.
