From 28 October 2015 all New Zealand companies must have at least one director who lives in New Zealand, or who lives in Australia and is a director of an Australian registered company. We have been working with our clients to help ensure these requirements are met.
However, if your situation changes, for example you are moving overseas and the company you are a director of will be left without a director living in NZ, then you need to appoint a NZ based director. The same applies if the director you appointed, that at the time was living in NZ decides to move, you would need to consider a new appointment of a NZ based director.
If you are thinking of moving overseas, short term or long term, please contact our office to check the requirements.
