Company directors, look sharp! New company requirements in force

By Melissa Higham - 29 Oct 2015

New Companies Office requirements came into force yesterday. Failure to comply with these new rules could result in companies being struck off the Register.

From 28 October 2015 all New Zealand companies are required to have at least one director who either:

  • lives in New Zealand, or
  • lives in Australia and is a director of a company incorporated in Australia.

If your company does not comply, the Registrar will advise of its pending strike off by public notice. This public notice could not only cause embarrassement for your company, it could be fatal to it as well.

If your company does not comply, it's not too late! However, you must act quickly to take steps to object to the strike off process. If you would like any assistance with this or any other any company management issues, please contact us.
