NZBN – Less work - More business

Find out more about what the NZBN can do for your business. 

Your New Zealand Business Number (NZBN) is unique - locally, nationally and globally – and can open the door to digital services that can help your business save time and money – many of these services are free.

Michael Henstock, from the NZBN team at the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment will explain how your NZBN can benefit your business, whether you’re a sole trader or SME, manufacturer, large retailers, global exporter or corporate.

With NZBN you can:

  • Automatically update core business information on your system.
  • Simplify purchaser/supplier relationship management, auto-populating key data-fields.

NZBN is powering some exciting new initiatives:

  • E-invoicing, direct supplier/buyer finance/procurement system:
    • reducing costs
    • increasing efficiency
    • reducing risk of fraud
    • increasing accuracy.
