Laser Strike

Unlike indoor laser tag in a dark room where you get to shoot just anyone who comes your way, LaserStrike is a mission-based outdoor laser tag gameplay. It’s like being able to play a live action battle video game in a realistic battlefield. The gameplay is sufficiently straightforward for amateurs, yet has enough complexity for hardcore players.

How NZ can benefit from China’s One Belt One Road Policy

Executive Summary:

China’s One Belt, One Road policy has the potential to be perhaps the world’s largest platform for regional collaboration. It is a hugely ambitious undertaking, potentially covering about 65 percent of the world’s population, about one-third of the world’s GDP, and about a quarter of all the goods and services the world moves.
Chinese Premier Li Keqiang’s visit to New Zealand in May of this year brought the One Belt One Road policy to forefront of the national discussion. Policy commentators debated what the visit would mean for NZ; a massive influx of foreign investment into infrastructure or a new free trade agreement.
The host will briefly introduce OBOR for those who are unfamiliar with the policy and then lead a discussion with a panel of experts to discuss how NZ businesses can maximise benefits from it and what policies the Government can enact to make this easier. The host will also talk about how the policy framework could influence offshore Chinese companies to come to NZ and what this could mean for infrastructure here.

Doing business in New Zealand – legal, tax and accounting landscape

Executive Summary:

New Zealand provides its investors with a free and open business environment and a sophisticated business legal system. It is an ideal country for investment. Similar to many developed countries, most of the businesses are carried out as limited liability companies. Investors can also undertake businesses in partnerships or sole proprietorship.
New Zealand has a sophisticated and stable tax system and a broad tax basis although capital gains are not currently taxed. In New Zealand, the Financial Reporting Act 2013 sets out a new financial reporting framework and minimum financial reporting requirements.
New Zealand businesses must submit an annual tax return and pay tax (provisional tax instalment rules apply) to IR. The tax regimes generally operate on a self-assessment basis with returns filed being selected for review/audit by IR from time to time.
It is important to understand the legal, tax and reporting compliance requirements for investors wanting to successfully doing business in New Zealand.

FRIDAY SUMMIT – NZCBIA BUILDING STATE OF THE NATION SUMMIT
Friday 21st July
The theme of this year’s Summit is Innovation & Entrepreneurship, including how NZ can benefit from China’s “One Belt, One Road” initiative.

The aim of the Summit is for industry leaders to explore ways that the sector can continue to evolve and prosper.
The event will also introduce what China’s impressive “One Belt, One Road” initiative can mean for New Zealand businesses, both how to benefit and to make sure that any projects are completed in a sustainable way to ensure New Zealand’s points of difference in the world.
