Get your NZBN

Let’s get your business up and running with its own NZBN. All you need to do is select what sort of business yours is, gather some key information and follow a few simple instructions.

Some businesses and organisations have been automatically assigned an NZBN (any already registered with the Companies Office), and don’t need to apply for one. This includes registered companies, incorporated societies, charitable trust boards, building societies, credit unions, friendly societies, industrial and provident societies and limited partnerships (New Zealand and overseas). The NZBN Register also includes government agencies and other public sector entities, such as schools and local councils.

Use the search bar above to see if your business already has an NZBN.

If you’re not sure what type of business yours is, check our 'Who can have an NZBN?' page for more information.
