Our Vision:

Smarter, better business.​

Malloch McClean was established in 1933 when Mr Malloch set off on his bicycle around the countryside talking to farmers about the impending introduction of depreciation and the need for double entry accounting. His success depended on theirs, so Mr Malloch added value wherever he could. He went on to author books about farm accounting that would influence a generation of accountants, economists and students. 

Joining in 1939, Mr McClean introduced the theme of continuous innovation, which included the acquisition of one of the first computers to be used by an accounting firm in New Zealand (requiring its own room). He went on to hold directorships in numerous organisations including the Reserve Bank of New Zealand.

85 years on, our dedication to our customers hasn’t changed. Our vision is to deliver an accounting firm that remains fit for the future.

We have a diverse team of over forty accountants and business advisers, plus many new tools to help. We’ve seen almost everything, and understand your industry, your business, and your goals. We’re not your average accountancy firm. We practice what we teach and constantly innovate to exceed expectations.
