About Us

Our History:  Edwin Martell  Silks started the first Silks Accountancy firm in Whanganui in 1904.

Over the decades that followed, the firm underwent many changes.  From a small local accountancy firm to an international accounting group (Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu) Silks has come full circle returning to its roots. 

In true Silks tradition, David Fraser and Cameron Town understood the necessity for change and that Audit should become an independent business.  It would allow their team to stretch and expand their knowledge base and in 2010 the decision to separate the Audit group from the Business Advisory Services group was made.  Read More
