Doing business with accurate information


Having the correct details will mean Kiwi businesses spend less time being bogged down by manual processes or errors.

The New Zealand Business Number (NZBN) gives businesses fast, easy access to accurate information about the organisations they work with.

Sabrina Baker, a consultant at global procurement consultancy firm ArcBlue, believes this is going to have a big effect on the way businesses engage with each other, and will speed up interactions.

“There are lots of benefits to be had from the procurement and finance lifecycle perspective.”

Having the correct details when it comes to sending an invoice, or paying a supplier, will ensure Kiwi businesses spend less time being bogged down by manual processes or errors. If others you work with are using the NZBN in their systems too, that confidence becomes a two-way street.

“Because you’ve got your information in the New Zealand Business Number Register you’ll be assured that their systems have the correct information about your organisation.”

One of the biggest advantages of the NZBN is that it’s for everyone – regardless of business size or structure.

“Any business in New Zealand can have an NZBN. It saves you time, it saves you money and it means you can focus on the things you’re actually in business to do, or you could spend more time with your family.”

To get started, search for your business on the NZBN Register. If your business doesn’t have an NZBN, get one here.
