A roadshow of 21 events for small business owners and managers will be held between June and November 2016, in both urban and provincial locations across New Zealand.

Whether it is through compliance, tax, surveys or trade and innovation, businesses spend a significant amount of time working with government agencies.

The aim of 'Taking Care of Business' is to make it easier and more efficient for business owners to deal with government so they can focus on making their business a success.

At these events, experts from several different agencies will outline government support available for businesses, discuss new legislation and how to comply, and answer any questions business owners might have.

Hot topics include:

Regional Business Partners and what they offer
Business.govt.nz – tools and service offering
Statistics New Zealand's website and business toolbox
Making tax simpler
Health and safety legislation
ACC levies and employment legislation
Digital technology.
Some information will also be provided on cyber security, Te Puni Kokiri’s Maori Business Facilitation Service, free trade agreements, intellectual property protection and immigration.
