Institute of Certified NZ Bookkeepers

Strategic Partners


The Career Academy

We enjoy a close working relationship with the Career Academy which was borne from a joint desire to raise the standards of the bookkeeping profession in New Zealand and ensuring continuing education is available.

Bookkeeping courses available through The Career Academy are all endorsed by the Association and are designed to provide students with the ideal platform to launch their bookkeeping career in New Zealand.  Students are also provided with a membership pathway into the Association which allows them the opportunity to continued support from our experienced membership network.

With a continued focus of developing and providing education pathways for both aspiring and practicing bookkeepers – our partnership with The Career Academy is proving invaluable to the profession.



MYOB makes life easier for millions of users, and, as a key player in the accounting software market, is used by our membership network in their bookkeeping duties on a daily basis.

Our partnership with MYOB allows us the unique opportunity to promote awareness of the bookkeeping profession to their subscribers, and provides us with a voice for the bookkeeping community.

With their ongoing commitment to innovation and research and development, and our focus on supporting our members, our partnership with MYOB is a win-win for the bookkeeping profession.



New Zealand’s own locally grown software Xero aims to revolutionise small business and were integral in bringing efficient bank fed transactions to mainstream processes.

Xero is used by our membership network to help connect them with the right numbers for their clients, anytime, anywhere, on any device.  This partnership with Xero allows us to promote the bookkeeping profession to their users, and in turn provides us with support to our membership network.

With their ongoing commitment to supporting the bookkeeping profession, our members continue to reap the benefits of our partnership with Xero.



New Zealand Payroll Practitioners Association (NZPPA)

NZPPA’s focus is on developing payroll as a recognised profession in its own right, not to sit or hidden under accounting or human resource functions.

As a national organisation with members throughout New Zealand and overseas (wherever NZ payroll is processed) they now have over 1100+ members that includes: individual, company, not for profit, corporate and overseas members.

With many of our members providing payroll services to their clients, and being members of the NZPPA, we enjoy a close professional relationship which benefits the members of both associations.


Accountants and Tax Agents Institute of New Zealand (ATAINZ)

An incorporated society established in 1976, ATAINZ aims to foster tax knowledge in New Zealand and to further and develop tax practices.

Members of ATAINZ benefit from courses, conferences and seminars to support members' continuing professional development and ensure they are up to date with developments in tax law ensuring high standards are maintained within the industry.

As a growing number of bookkeepers become tax advisors, members of both associations benefit from our open lines of communication.
