Auckland Accountants, HR & Business Advisors

Baker Tilly Staples Rodway Auckland was founded in 1945 and has grown to be one of New Zealand’s leading independent accounting firms. We have 17 directors leading a team of over 120 professional staff providing great service to a wide range of clients.

For many businesses, accountancy is just a service they need – not something picked for its added value. At Baker Tilly Staples Rodway Auckland, our talented people and diverse range of services mean that we can be so much more for our clients.


“We wrote the original New Zealand Staples Tax Guide – and it’s still published under that name. ”


Baker Tilly Staples Rodway Auckland has been one of New Zealand’s most trusted independent accountancy firms for more than 70 years. Having worked with some of our clients for several generations, we know first-hand how building strong relationships is key to business continuity and lasting success.

What does this mean for you? For a start it means we care about your business and your personal ambitions, so we work very hard to help you find ways to grow wealth and keep it secure. Next, it means you can rely on us to go beyond the obvious; we use our deep knowledge of the New Zealand business landscape to come up with innovative ideas. We also think clearly and proactively about what kind of services are going to help you and how to make those services affordable and effective. That means making maximum use of technology to deliver services more quickly and cost-effectively.
