Taranaki Accounting, Audit,
HR, IT, Marketing & Business Advice

Staples Rodway Taranaki is one of Taranaki’s leading accounting firms. We have a team of 8 Directors leading a staff of over 80. We offer a range of services additional to accounting including HR, IT, Marketing, Insolvency, Audit and Taxation. As business advisors we’re all about people and just like the diverse ranges of towns that make up our province, all of our clients are very different – a bit like us – we’re ‘not so ordinary’ chartered accountants.

Our Specialist areas

While our core business is providing accounting services, we’ve always been much more than that. Unlike some accountants, we offer a whole business package – providing Accounting, Human Resources, Marketing, Tax, Assurance and IT expertise to all areas of the business, ultimately adding much more value. We’re all about knowledge, and sharing that knowledge to help you grow and develop a way of life that’s valuable to you and your business.

Business Advice

Our team of Business Advisors can assist in many ways, whether it’s taking care of your compliance and other statutory obligations or providing pragmatic added value advice. We can leverage your exposure to multiple businesses across various industries to provide real insight into the environment you work in and provide advice based on practical experience.
