Increased fees for filings with New Zealand Companies Office

11 November, 2020 - New Zealand Companies office has recently raised the fees it charges for various services, including the fee for the filing of annual return and financial statements (under the FMC).

The increase has been caused by the need to cover the costs of the newly introduced regulatory regime for insolvency practitioners in terms of the Insolvency Practitioners Regulation Act 2019. It was also influenced by the Financial Markets Authority’s levy increase.
