ACC Liason

At Deans and Associates we provide advice and guidance on all aspects relating to your ACC cover options and ACC obligations.

Whether you are self-employed or an employer, you are required by law to have ACC cover.

If you are self-employed you have the option of choosing between:

  • ACC CoverPlus - the standard option; or
  • ACC CoverPlus Extra - where you wil receive a guaranteed and agreed to weekly amount, if you are unable to work as a result of an injury

If you are an employer you are required to provide work-related personal injury cover for all your employees, whether they're full-time, part-time or casual workers. ACC WorkPlace Cover provides full cover for all employees who suffer a work related personal injury.

For further information and advice on your ACC cover talk to us. We can also discuss with you some options that may be applicable for your business, to help reduce your ACC levy.

Coordination of the transition of your business to your successors can be an arduous process. However, with our years of experience we can address the complex issues of business continuation and appropriately guide you through the process of providing business continuity.
