Sarah Attwood

Partner, Financial Advisory Services, PwC New Zealand

Sarah is a Tax Partner based in Ōtautahi, Christchurch. She works with a variety of clients across a range of industries including technology, construction, retail, beauty and agriculture. She has international experience, having worked both in New Zealand and the UK, where she provides tax compliance and consulting services on a range of matters, such as tax structuring (both domestic and cross-border), business transactions and indirect tax, including GST and FBT reviews.

Sarah has supported a number of New Zealand businesses in their investments and expansions abroad. She guides businesses through the intricacies of international tax compliance, ensuring they have a comprehensive understanding of their tax obligations when operating in foreign jurisdictions. Sarah collaborates closely with clients to establish appropriate structures that effectively manage both commercial and tax risks, while also enabling strategic planning for future growth.

Sarah is also passionate about working with clients to understand the impact of ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) factors on their business, and assisting with the design and implementation of ESG strategies to create sustainable outcomes. Tax has an important role to play in this area, particularly in the context of tax governance and transparency reporting, executive remuneration, transfer pricing and broader implications of greenhouse gas emission reduction targets. 

As parents to two young boys, Sarah and her husband David often spend their weekends down at the beach or local playground. They both enjoy spending time outdoors, whether it be in the garden or running on the Port Hills.
