    Default Starting import export business

    Hi, I am thinking to start a import export business in NZ. Basically importing general household things, packed food items and clothes. And exporting traditional NZ things e.g. honey. Just wanted to ask that is there any website from where I could get details on setting up/registering the business, import export procedures, and tax rules around it.

    Thanks!

    PS: I am on residency visa.

    Go to www.business.govt.nz or if you do a Google search, you will find a lot of information required.

    Setting up/registering the business - https://www.companiesoffice.govt.nz/companies

    import export procedures - http://www.customs.govt.nz/ . You will want to find out about harmonised codes. There is an index available here - http://www.customs.govt.nz/news/reso...ents/Index.pdf. Once you know the harmonised code you can find out the import and export fees for the different countries.

    tax rules around it - https://ird.govt.nz. There are good reasons to get GST registered when you first start up - talk an accountant about this.

    Hi MMM , where are you based? I'm looking at a similar business and I have some good cracks if you want to discuss or possibly chat about partnership option?
