Verifying your Business Account (NZ)

For companies based in New Zealand we will require some extra documentation based around the structure of your company and its details.

What type of company are you verifying?

Limited Businesses
  • A certificate of incorporation which has been issued to your business by NZ Companies Office
  • A company extract which outlines the share structure of your business
  • Photo identification for all directors and beneficial owners of the business (a beneficial owner is defined as anyone who holds a shareholding of 25% or more) 
  • Address documents (a utility bill or bank statement) for all directors and beneficial owners

Please Note

If 25% or more of your businesses shares are owned by another company, we will also need to complete business verification for this company.

Sole Traders
  • A copy of your self assessment tax return showing you are self employed
  • A business bank statement showing your trading name
  • A web address for your website (if available)
  • A few sentences describing your business activities and the nature of your transfers and relationship with the recipient

Currently, OrbitRemit does not accept payments made from a trust based in New Zealand.

We will send you a support ticket with details of exactly what we need to upgrade your account to a business account and you can attach the documents to the ticket.

Not registering on behalf of a company?

If you are not registering as a business, you will need to meet the personal verification requirements.
