The practice was formed in 2001, when Bob Browne and Scott Browne withdrew from the longstanding practice, Mabee Halstead and Kiddle. Previously located in Shortland St, Auckland the practice changed its name from MH&K to Browne’s in 2010.
Between them the directors have over 60 + years experience as Chartered Accountants and Auditors, in New Zealand.
Establishing Browne’s has strengthened our overall ability to tailor our services and advice to meet the needs of our clients.
Whereas audit appears to be an area from which many Chartered Accounting practices are exiting, we have made a decision to remain committed to providing Audit services to our clients and to furthermore, grow our business in this area of professional services.
At Browne’s we currently have a staff of 6 people, who are extremely professional, value confidentiality and take tremendous pride in their output.
