According to the World Bank 2016 survey, New Zealand is the easiest place in the world to start a business due to the convenience of getting business permits, submitting registration documents and obtaining a credit. No wonder that this country attracts many domestic and international entrepreneurs who are looking to explore business opportunities in the Land of the Long White Cloud. The country currently has over 600,000 registered businesses operating in the real estate, construction, agriculture, transport, manufacturing and tourism industries and, as it often happens, it may get difficult to find information on a particular company online, especially if it is a local business that does not have its own website.
Many customers often use simple Google search to find the data they are looking for, however, it needs to be pointed out that data provided on random business directories can often be outdated, obsolete or no longer valid. With that in mind, the creators of BizDB.co.nz have decided to bring you the ultimate online business directory containing only the most reliable and up-to-date information about the New Zealand companies. The data published on this innovative platform is extracted from official government websites and state documents and it is neatly organised in order to provide maximum accessibility and satisfying end user experience.
How to get information about a company? Input the name of the business you are looking for in the search toolbar located centrally on the home page of the platform and hit the search button. You can also search the database using advanced search options in Company Search section and look up companies by NZBN, company name or keywords, company number or type. The search engine will retrieve information that match your search parameters and in just a few seconds a list of possible matches will be displayed on the screen. Click on any one of these results to view the details of a particular company. It is important to mention that the more specific parameters you provide, the more effective your search will be. Additionally, the website contains an alphabetically organised index of all companies featured in the BizDB repository.
Each company profile is very informative. On the top of the page you will see full legal name of the business and its corporate extension. There is also an exact date of establishment and number of years the company has been on the market, its registration details, NZBN, company number and its status. Each business page contains general industry code and description of industry classification which come in handy when creating a full profile of the company. You will also find current addresses of every branch or local office and the date they were updated. What follows next is a brief history of the company, previous registration and operation addresses, contact details, including phone numbers, e-mails and websites. BizDB also gathers basic financial information of the company focusing on shares distribution and allocation. You will get contact details to every person that has invested in the company. At the very bottom you can find information about former and current directors, CEOs, and company presidents. It is basically everything you need to know about a business all in one convenient location.
BizDB is therefore the only virtual business repository you will ever need to gather information about New Zealand businesses, so do not hesitate and give it a try!
