WEA Records Limited was the New Zealand operating company of the US WEA / Warner Music operation.

One of the earliest of the international branches, WEA's NZ operation was originally set up in 1973 under the wing of EMI (NZ) Ltd., who had distributed the WEA abels since 1970, as the result of an approach to the parent company by NZ businessman Tim Murdoch. Jointly owned by Murdoch and WEA, it went fully independent in 1975. Murdoch was bought out in the 1980s, although he remained as MD until the mid-1990s.

From 1973 to 1975 the company's product was manufactured by His Master's Voice (NZ) Limited (2), a subsidiary of EMI (NZ) Ltd.

The company changed its name to Warner Music New Zealand Limited in 1990.
