Who we are

At Diprose Miller, what we offer is simple. Expert advice with local knowledge. But that hasn’t come overnight. Rather, that is a result of 50 years of dedicated service to our clients.

As a company, we’ve been around for a while. Our story dates back to the 1960s, when in March 1965, a young accountant by the name of Kelly Diprose took a carefully calculated and financially analysed risk. Armed with his trusty briefcase at his side and a belief that the Waikato community needed such a businessman, Kelly opened his own accountancy firm in Te Aroha. The fact he had no clients didn’t matter, because it didn’t stay like that for long.

Candy Diprose accountants was formed after Kelly joined forces with Bruce Candy of Matamata. The two ambitious accountants now provided business advice, accounting services and financial guidance to these rural communities. It wasn’t long before each town’s practice became more self-sufficient, and the natural progression was to create two separate practices. In the early 1990's, the Te Aroha firm rebranded to Diprose Miller to recognise Kelly's partnership with fellow Te Aroha accountant, Keith Miller.


The past, present and future

On 1st January 1998, the firm became incorporated and since then has traded as Diprose Miller. All five former partners became directors of the new company. Further change occurred on 3rd November 2014, when Diprose Miller merged with Morrinsville accountancy firm, RW Partners.

Today, Diprose Miller boasts a diverse team of 63 highly skilled, professional accountants and taxation specialists who operate from our main office at the base of Mount Te Aroha, and a branch in central Morrinsville. Together we offer tailored farm and business accounting services as well as taxation solutions. These include farm performance analyses and appraisals of purchases; business formation, development, strategy and consulting; and both corporate and provisional tax plus asset protection and estate planning.

We’re all experts in the fields of rural accountancy, but we’ve come from a diverse range of backgrounds, allowing us to serve our clients and understand their individual business needs, whether they be in the Waikato, New Zealand or overseas. We all live in the Te Aroha and Morrinsville communities and actively participate in local events and organisations.

Five decades on and Kelly’s ethos continues to be shared by all who work at Diprose Miller. We’re community focused, client-centric and we love what we do. We believe that’s a recipe for success.
