Company Profile

COOPERAITKEN LIMITED, CHARTERED ACCOUNTANTS

CooperAitken are  Chartered Accountants and ‘Business Advisors for Life’ with a team of 103. Our roots go as far back as 1914 when TJ Ryan set up an office in Morrinsville. Read more here about our history. The team you see today is the result of many mergers of accounting businesses over the years including the Cooper and Aitken merger. 

Our client base has grown substantially over recent years, and we are very proud of that.  In some instances we are working with third generation clients, and that’s a reflection of our core values and  our ‘Clients for Life’ ethos.
