NEW ZEALAND BUSINESS NUMBERS

The 550,000 New Zealand companies registered with the Companies Office will soon be assigned a New Zealand Business Number (NZBN), with the intention being that all businesses have an NZBN by December this year.

Companies will be able to use their NZBN to interact with the Companies Office along with their current Companies Office number.

The NZBN will also enable government agencies and other organisations to provide more integrated and targeted services, reducing the number of times businesses have to provide the same information, saving time and money

In time, the plan is to apply an NZBN to all businesses in New Zealand, and create a single searchable public register of businesses. The aim is to achieve this by the end of 2014.

Further information is available from the MBIE website
