According to its Chief Executive/Chief Compliance Officer John M Carr CPA, Carr Consulting P.A. (formerly Cuchara Inc), an active Florida registered “domestic for profit ” corporation, has its headquarters at 22588 Scenic Loop Rd, San Antonio TX 78255-2253, employs between 25 and 100 people, has a current website (http://www.carrconsultingpa.com/), is owned privately, has an annual revenue of between one and ten million US dollars and a San Antonio phone contact number of +1-210-694-7884.
Its links to the sleazy hard core porn industry in New Zealand, particularly companies directed by “NZ Porn King” Steve Crow and John M Carr, and multi-million dollar property developments, is of vital interest to the Society, NZ public and the government agencies currently investigating his convoluted web of companies.

……….. who has lots more to say
The companies schematic diagram above, updated on 25 June 2010, is based on one taken from the Society’s December 2009 Newsletter (latest high definition version is available here in PDF format).
Mr John Malcolm Carr must have a wonderful grasp of the true facts about this professional association (Carr Consulting P.A.) authorised to render financial planning advice in Florida, as he is its registered agent and it is named in his honour. Further reason to expect him to be ‘sharp as a tack’ on detail is that New Zealand investigators are rapidly coming to the conclusion that he is the main, if not sole shareholder of this privately owned corporation that owns four NZ registered companies which he directs: Velocity Partners Ltd, First Virtual Deposit & Nominee Company Ltd, PJ Digital Ltd, and Shelf Company No. 10 Ltd. The first has a significant investment (39%) in the NZ hard core pornography industry through its daughter company CVC Group Ltd.

22588 Scenic Loop Rd, San Antonio TX 78255-2253
The San Antonio Texas address John M Carr provides to the Jigsaw Business Directory for Carr Consulting P.A. does not match the one currently listed on New Zealand Companies Office records for the four NZ registered companies that he directs and which are wholly owned by Carr Consulting P.A. That address – 14/31 Greenlane Rd, Remuera, Auckland – is not the residential address of Mr John M Carr, nor is it an office of a subsidiary of Carr Consulting P.A. Under Florida State Law, Carr Consulting P.A. (State I.D. V24055. Tax No. 593113361) cannot operate any overseas subsidiary.
The San Antonio Scenic Loop Rd property Mr John M Carr highlights as the global headquarters of Carr Consulting P.A., with its claimed bulging staff of 25-100 people and a voluminous revenue source of millions of US dollars, is actually owned by Better Business Services, Inc [BBS] which is owned and directed by John M Carr. It consists of two adjacent land titles, one of which constitutes a strip of roadside wasteland scrub with no buildings on it and currently valued at $2,700. The other, also bare land and scrub, is currently valued at $294,140 and it does have one tiny dwelling on it valued last year at $81,300. That structure was valued at $97,300 in 2005 before the recession took a bite and progressive nibbles into the assets of corporate giants like Carr Consulting P.A. and its BBS relatives.
The business phone number provided by John M Carr for Carr Consulting P.A. (+1-2106947884) on the Jigsaw Business directory is the same one found in the current San Antonio White pages for three other persons, all neither related biologically or by marriage to John M Carr. These other businesses are not based at the Scenic Loop Rd world HQ of Carr Consulting P.A. which was incorporated on 23 March 1992 and does not have a current phone listing in the White Pages, even under its old name Cuchara Inc. This is truly puzzling given that it employs such a large bloated workforce (25 to 100 persons) who all rely on communication with the outside real world.
Carr Business Services, Inc.
(“Not in Good Standing” with the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts with respect to the filing of franchise tax certificates)
John M Carr is Director, President and Registered Agent of this corporation.

James A. Francesco who is employed by Carr Business Services Inc. (File No. 0105380900. Tax Payer ID 17424474837) is listed in the White Pages as having the same Tel. number (+1-210-694-7884). The number is linked to his business address at 11107 Wurzbach Rd, Suite 405, San Antonio TX 78230-2570. This is same address John M Carr used for many years on the NZ Companies Office records as his residential address for all the four NZ-registered companies he directs that are owned by Cuchara Inc (later renamed Carr Consulting P.A. in March 1999).
Carr Business Services Inc. based at PO Box 780637, San Antonio TX 78278-0637, was incorporated in Florida on 19 February 1987 as a domestic for profit corporation (State I.D.

Carr Consulting Website Out of Order
Carr Consulting P.A. has never had a functional website despite Mr Carr’s promotion of the website www.carrconsultingpa.com on public business websites like www.jigsaw.com Visit the site and one will not even see a sign “Under Construction” or “Gone Fishing”. Only one “contact” person (identity undisclosed) is shown as employed by Carr Consulting P.A. No information is provided on the 25 to 100 employees of Carr Consulting P.A.
Better Business Services Inc. (BBS)
Another of the gaggle of Carr companies to have its world headquarters at the same address as Carr Consulting P.A. is Better Business Services Inc., better known in better business, bank and busy bookkeeping circles as “BBS” (not to be confused with BSS Express Ltd discussed above). This “Domestic for Profit” corporation (Tax No. 17422888596 and File No. 0067876000) is currently “In good standing not for dissolution or withdrawal thru May 17, 2010”. In was registered in the State of Texas on November 11, 1983. John M Carr, its current registered agent states that he purchased the Florida and Texan operations of the company in the 1980s.
On the BBS website John M Carr states under his own profile (see “The Owner” : www.bbs.co.nz ):
“The central administrative offices for the BBS companies were moved to a campus-like setting on 10 acres of land in Boerne, just outside San Antonio in May 2004.”
However, a careful forensic examination by our research team using Google Earth Tools pinpointed the gaggle of Carr companies in the Texan mountains about 25 Kms SE of Boerne and 30 kms NW of downtown San Antonio. It is located in a remote and bleak site well beyond the outskirts of the San Antonio’s outer poverty-prone fringes. Perhaps to call it a “campus-like setting” is only to be expected from one honking the merits of a global empire HQ. But then again “campus-like” settings are in the eye of the BBS beholder.
On 6 September 1984 BBS was authorised to do business in sunny Florida under Charter No. P03291. This Florida registered corporation (Tax No. 742288879) is classified “active” and “in good standing” with the Florida Department of State.
