About Us


Our Background

Founded in 1993 by Paul Harrop and Robin Hargrave, who lent their names to the business, Harrop & Hargrave Ltd is Waiheke’s longest established accounting practice, providing professional accounting, and business and tax services.

In 2011, highly experienced Chartered Accountants David Johnson and Georgie Webber joined forces with Harrop & Hargrave, bringing a fresh and dynamic approach while retaining the local expertise and knowledge of the existing staff.

With a broad portfolio of accounting experience and skills, our team assist and guide clients through all aspects of accounting and business services from buying and selling businesses to bank loan applications, property, MYOB, XERO and general business advisory services.

In 2016 Kevin Walker joined our team as a partner bringing a wealth of experience from running his own practice previously.

The latest addition to our team is Leigh Peterken who lives on Waiheke Island and is highly invested in serving the community and our clients needs.

The business actively supports a number of community events, including the Fullers Wharf2Wharf and Onetangi Beach Races.
