Why Setup Business in New Zealand

Economic Overview & Business Opportunities

Consists of two main islands – the North Island and the South Island, New Zealand is a multi-ethnic society, and home to 4.7 million of people of many different national origins. The five largest cities of New Zealand are Auckland, Christchurch, Wellington, Hamilton and Tauranga.

The economy of New Zealand is the 53rd largest national economy in the world measured by nominal gross domestic product (GDP) and 69th largest in the world measured by purchasing power parity (PPP). As a country with an open economy that works on free market principles, New Zealand has an export-driven competitive economy with exports accounting for about 30% of its GDP. New Zealand’s strong commitment to economic freedom has resulted in a policy framework that encourages impressive economic resilience. The stable financial system and prudent regulations allowed banks to weather through the past global financial turmoil with little difficulties. Other than the stable financial system, the management of public finance, monetary stability, and strong protection of property rights have contributed to the Kiwi economy.

Furthermore, the transparent and stable business climate makes New Zealand one of the friendliest business environments in the world. According to the World Bank in 2017, New Zealand is the second easiest place in the world to do business, and first for ease of starting a business. Forbes ranked New Zealand as the second in the 2017 Best Country for Business, right behind Sweden. Also, New Zealand is second amongst OECD countries for the competitiveness of its taxes overall according to the Tax Foundation’s 2016 International Tax Competitiveness Index (ITCI). Other than the good reputation of doing business, New Zealand has been ranked as the least corrupt country in the world, according to the Transparency International’s 2017 Corruption Perception Index.

New Zealand is a country that is full of opportunities in many fields, in both traditional and new business sectors. Among the sectors that New Zealand is doing exceptionally well include information and communications technology, tourism, film and special effects production, biotechnology, agricultural research, and wood-based technology.

There are many ways that you can invest in New Zealand, be it as a passive investor, or setting up a business. No matter what type of approach you choose to traipse into the New Zealand’s market, this country has lots to offer.
