Who we are

We are a small team of Chartered Accountants with some support staff to assist with your business requirements. We have an office in New Zealand and the Cook Islands.

JMA Chartered Accountants Limited was established in 2010 with a vision of creating a Chartered Accounting practice with a difference. We specialise in working with clients who want to maximize the potential of their business. Whether you have a one-off consulting assignment or project or want an ongoing business partnership with us we have the skills in-house or through our affiliated business partners to help you.

The business was founded by Joanne Rose who is a Chartered Accountant with many years experience in two large local firms. She is assisted by Anna Jordan who is also a Chartered Accountant and comes from a big local firm after 26 years.

Both Joanne and Anna are focused on creating and maintaining positive working relationships with their clients and providing exceptional timely service. We have an excellent experienced support team consisting of Veronica, Kim and Vicki. Veronica looks after all our administration and company office requirements and comes to us after more than 20 years in a local chartered accounting firm. Kim has more than 15 years experience in a Chartered Accountancy firm and she assists us in the preparation of our financial statements, GST returns and anything else that is required. Vicki has worked in a Chartered Accountancy firm many years ago and has had many years preparing financial statements internally for various companies.
