The easy way to get compliance right

31 Aug 2015

Compliance Matters is an online tool from Business.govt.nz that makes it easy for businesses to understand what they need to do to comply with the law.

If you run a business, this user-friendly tool saves you from searching all the different government websites to figure out your obligations.

Business.govt.nz Manager, Matt Kennedy-Good, says the free tool is all about saving small businesses time dealing with government, so they can focus on running their business instead.

“Within minutes you can find the things you need to be doing in your business and start ticking them off your list” says Matt. 

With Compliance Matters you can:

  • Find out the compliance requirements that apply to your business
  • Create prioritised action lists
  • Complete compliance tasks online
  • Set reminders for tasks to follow up on.

Even if you’ve been in business for a while, there may be some things you haven’t come across yet. The tool covers it all, from starting a business to employing staff to exporting, tax requirements, health and safety, and everything in between.
