Overseas Investment in New Zealand



Investors, both institutional/corporate and private around the world are increasingly attracted to New Zealand which offers substantial benefits to offshore parties interested in:

  • investing in land or business in a balanced economy with valuable natural resources and stable government.
  • emigrating to a country that is clean and safe.
  • shifting assets to a favourable tax jurisdiction.

  • Acquisitions and dispositions of New Zealand shares, business assets and properties.
  • New Zealand's overseas investment laws.
  • Investment vehicles such as:

    • foreign trusts
    • pre-migration trusts
    • New Zealand managed trusts
    • New Zealand complying and non-complying trusts.
