Register A Company provides an online platform to enable the registration of New Zealand companies. The business also provides general advice about different corporate structures. It does not provide legal advice or make recommendations as to the type of structuring a business should set up.
What you need to know before you start
Register A Company provides a limited range of company formation services. According to the application form you complete and request you make, we will:
Where we have incorporated an entity on your behalf, we will at the conclusion of the service provide you with the following:
You may at any time following registration of your company request additional copies.
Fee and Refunds
Fees are payable upon submission of your application. Our fees are set out on our pricing page. They are subject to change from time to time as we determine appropriate.
Fees are non-refundable except in circumstances where you can demonstrate that the company cannot be registered due to factors outside your control or due to factors outside our control. For clarity, a change of mind does not entitle you to a refund and nor does the failure to register due to your application lapsing at the Companies Office, which can happen if you do not return the signed consent forms before the due date (a date by the Companies Office). We will communicate to you when your consent forms must be returned by and will send you reminders by email, but ultimately it is your responsibility to return the consent forms before the due date.
When applying for a refund, you must apply in writing setting out the details and reasons for the refund. Refunds are made at the sole discretion of management, reasonably exercised.
All refunds must be paid to the same account from which they were made.
We take due care to ensure the documentation we produce on the completion of registration are legally correct and that the information and advice we provide on the formation of structures in New Zealand is correct.
We undertake to respond to applications within 1 business day and to email enquiries within 2 business days unless our website advises otherwise. While we will undertake all actions within reasonable timeframes, we cannot guarantee timeframes for the incorporation of an entity as this is outside our control, as it is subject to both the availability of online Companies Office services, and their processing times.
We will provide comprehensive forms to ensure all necessary information for successful completion of registration will be completed and in the event that registration is not completed due to an error on our account, we will refund the fee accordingly. It is your responsibility to ensure the details of your new company, once incorporated, are true and correct, and that they match the details you have provided to us. If an error is made during the filing of your new company for which we are responsible, we will make our best efforts to rectify it, providing the error is brought to our attention within four weeks of the date of incorporation.
We act on behalf of the entity only until such time as registration is complete. After registration (incorporation) all responsibility and liability for ongoing management of the entity transfers to the named directors. Register a Company remains listed as an authorised party for the period of four weeks following registration for the sole purpose of addressing any errors that may have inadvertently occurred during the registration process.
Where Register a Company provides advice on entity structures or means of protecting entity names and brands, such advice is generic in nature and does not constitute legal or financial advice and is not to be considered a recommendation as to the best structure for your intended purposes.
We do not provide legal or tax advice. The information provided on entity structures is to the best of our knowledge up to date and accurate but we are not liable for any loss or damage, arising directly or indirectly, for any action taken or not taken in reliance on information we have provided.
We are not liable for the accuracy or otherwise of information provided for use in the provision of services to you.
We cannot guarantee timeframes as we are dependent on the Companies Office processing applications.
We do not guarantee that the continuous or uninterrupted use of this website or that the website is error free and we are not liable for any damage, direct or indirect that may arise as a consequence of these events.
We are not liable for loss or damage that occur as a result of any force majeure (see below).
