Business setup service
Do you want to start a business – but aren’t sure how best to go about it?
If you’ve got a great idea for a new business, but you’re not sure what’s involved in opening your own business – our business setup service can help you in a number of ways.
You’ll find that our team is very commercially minded and business savvy.
Preparing a business plan, cash flow projections, budgets and trading forecasts
Starting up your own business is an exciting time: but don’t let your enthusiasm and optimism cloud your judgment. The reality is that about a quarter of NZ startups fail within their first 3 years* – and we don’t want you to be part of that statistic.
Instead, you can call on us for business setup advice that’s honest and impartial. Let us crunch some numbers and reports for you, and you can see just how profitable your business is likely to be. This can save you a lot of money and stress in the long run.
What’s the best structure for your new business?
As part of our business setup help, we’ll be able to advise you on the best structure for your new business. This may be a limited liability company, partnership, limited partnership or trading trust – and each has its own set of advantages and disadvantages. It’s an important decision to get right at the outset, and we’ll be able to advise you on what you need for your company setup.
Depending on the structure of your business, and the industry you’ll be working in, there are a number of official registration procedures to complete. Our business setup services can take care of your registration with Companies House, Inland Revenue, and NZ Customs and Excise.
If you wish, we can also take responsibility for Company Secretary duties, such as filing your annual returns with Companies House, maintenance of company register and minute book.
Financing and banking
When it comes to business finance, the first and most crucial step is for you to establish a good working relationship with your bank – and we can help you with that.
Your new business startup may also need some finance: we’ll be able to provide you with advice on this, including preparing the necessary proposals, and sourcing the best value business financing.
Bookkeeping and accounting systems
If you’re opening your own business for the first time, you may not know what kinds of records to keep for your accounting, and the processes involved.
Our business setup service can help you start a recording system for your internal use, and that also complies with legal requirements. We can also help you set up accounting software and train you how to use it – or we can take on those day-to-day accounting duties, if you prefer.
Give your new business the best possible chance of succeeding and thriving – contact us today to give your startup a head start.
