Private limited liability company.

A company is legally separate from its owners (directors and shareholders). This limits the owners’ risk and is a reason why many businesses that export set up as companies. Annual returns must be filed with both the Companies Office and Inland Revenue Department.

Look-through company.

A Look-Through Company is the same as the traditional limited liability company; However, the laws differ regarding the taxation of the company’s income. The income and expenditure of an LTC are expressly in the hands of the shareholders.

Essential formation services

Foreign business ownership

Own and control 100% of your company as a foreign investor.

New Zealand allows ownership of companies by foreign individuals or companies. If a foreign company is the sole shareholder in a New Zealand company, then careful consideration on how the company is set up is required. Prior approval for investment may be required in some cases e.g. real-estate and large investments. There is also the need for a director to be resident in New Zealand, but generally the environment is friendly towards foreign investment.
