Moving to New Zealand from the US?
The global economy is changing rapidly and many in the US feel uncertain about their future. As an entrepreneur, you may be looking for a safe investment. New Zealand can be your place of refuge, a safe haven, away from the uncertainty of the current times.
New Zealand has one of the most stable and corruption free democracies in the world, providing you with a safe place to invest your energy, skills and money. Our government focuses on simplifying taxes and company rules, making it easier for businesses to succeed and grow. This has been globally acknowledged with the World Bank’s 2017 Business Report naming New Zealand as the easiest country to do business.
The New Zealand economy offers you a stable alternative. Between the 2007 GFC and 2014, our annual growth had risen to 3.3% and, according to the New Zealand Treasury, this was one of the strongest performances in the OECD.
Choose a Great Lifestyle for your Family
New Zealanders are hardworking and we take our jobs seriously. But we make sure to balance that with a laidback lifestyle, enjoying many outdoors and cultural activities.
The cost of living in New Zealand resembles most of America. But we’re considerably cheaper when compared to the more expensive cities. For instance, according to Mercer’s 2016 Cost of Living Survey New York was the 16th most expensive city to live with LA and San Francisco coming in at 27th and 26th respectively. Comparatively, our largest city, Auckland, came in at 98th and our capital city Wellington came in at 123rd.
How Woburn can Help US Investors with Immigration
We have settled many US citizens in New Zealand and we know exactly what it takes to find your own niche in our country.
Getting Started: finding you the right business
We will start out by getting to know you, finding out exactly what you’re looking for and how to get the perfect investment options for you and your family. As an investor, we can help you with the right pathway for your investment.
Ensuring your Application is a Success
We’ll save you time, money and hassle by personally assessing you from an immigration perspective, ensuring you fit with New Zealand’s immigration laws. This enables us to determine your potential to get through the process without any bumps along the way. We will help you define exactly what you can offer New Zealand and what you bring to the chosen business.
Following this due diligence, we will recommend any other services you may require, such as a lawyer and an accountant. With all your support persons in place, we will help you write the business plan and budget for the chosen business and supply this to Immigration NZ.
If additional market research is required as part of this plan we can even arrange that for you as well. We will also help you determine the right investment pathway and then the ongoing support once you are settled in NZ.
Woburn will be with you, supporting you, every step of the way.
