National's BusinessStart Policy

New Zealand is a country of extraordinary small businesses, I’ve visited hundreds of them and worked in a few too, so I know starting-out can be hard. Today National announced our BusinessStart policy to support entrepreneurship & make it easier for more Kiwis to start your own business.


✔️ BusinessStart will be available to people who lose their jobs and want to start their own business. They will be able to access:

✔️ Up to $20k from their KiwiSaver account to help start their business

✔️ At least $10k in tax credits

✔️ A waiver from the Company Office registration fee

✔️ Free mentoring from advisers like chambers of commerce and manufacturers associations
