The Companies Amendment Act 2014 has introduced a number of significant changes for New Zealand companies, including the introduction of new requirements for directors.
By 28 October 2015, all New Zealand companies are required to have at least one director that either lives in New Zealand, or lives in Australia and is a director of a company incorporated in Australia.
All directors of New Zealand companies living in Australia must also indicate if they are a director of an Australian company. If they are, they must provide the ACN number, the name and registered office of that Australian company.
Please ensure that the companies meet these requirements by 28 October 2015; companies that don't comply risk being removed from the register of companies.
