About us

The audit and assurance team at ABA Audit 2020 Limited has extensive experience in performing statutory and non-statutory assurance engagements for many types of New Zealand entities.

Our aim is to develop long standing relationships with our clients and to offer an affordable service without compromising on quality.

Section 35 of the Financial Reporting Act 2013 requires that a person who is appointed as an auditor to a specified entity must be a qualified auditor. We are qualified auditors, registered with Chartered Accountants Australia New Zealand (CAANZ). We adhere to the strict registration and licensing standards prescribed by NZICA.

James Stewart MURRAY started the Accountancy firm Associated Business Advisors in Orewa in 2006. .

Over the decade that followed, the firm underwent significant growth. ABA’s reputation has been built on providing local businesses with high quality financial, business, accounting and audit services, servicing Orewa, Silverdale, Red Beach, Millwater, Warkworth and Whangaparaoa areas as well as throughout New Zealand.

In 2015, James Murray understood that it was necessary to have the audit practice separated from the Associated Business Advisors. ABA Audit became an independent audit firm.

Cornelius and Shawn took over the ABA Audit in 2021 and James continues as a consultant. The reputation and value of ABA Audit will continue. We are ABA Audit.
