Business Structures

We provide solutions and options on suitable business structures through brief and clear advice. 

One of the first, and probably most important decisions that owners need to ask is – what is the most appropriate corporate structure for this business? All too often people setting up new businesses automatically assume that a company structure is best. This is often driven by an ill-informed view as to the benefits of limited liability.

We can assist you with:

  • Choosing the best structure for your business by considering the alternative entities available in New Zealand, such as:

    • A sole trader
    • A partnership (both general and limited)
    • A trading trust
    • An unincorporated joint venture
    • A company 
  • Ensuring that your chosen business structure can provide future flexibility, security, and investment returns (extraction of profits)
