Agribusiness

A diverse industry that contributes significantly to New Zealand’s economy, Agribusiness is up against an increasing number of challenges to operating profitably. We can help you navigate the impacts of shifting tax legislating, a fluctuating economy and variable commodity prices to reach results at each stage of your business’ lifecycle.

Education

New Zealand’s ever-changing and competitive education sector is experiencing a period of both growth and disruption. New service models emerged throughout the pandemic along with changing demands from parents and students. Our experienced advisors can assist you to meet these demands and leverage opportunities for expansion both here and internationally.

Health

Rapidly accelerating technological developments, a growing and ageing population, increasing demands from patients for affordable and remote services, a lack of substantial funding and impacts of a continuing pandemic are just some of the challenges this vital sector is up against. Despite the potential issues caused by these challenges, they also present opportunity.

Manufacturing

Government incentives, industry reforms and the emergence of Advanced Manufacturing are all driving a revived manufacturing industry with vast opportunities. Meanwhile, an increasing number of industry associations aim to support the sector by boosting productivity, improving competitiveness and enhancing sustainability.

Not for Profit

Good corporate governance, flexibility and an understanding of changing regulatory requirements are the keys to success in New Zealand’s purpose-driven not for profit sector. Highly collaborative organisations work with government entities and private businesses to make long lasting impact and deliver for New Zealanders.

Professional Services

A strong and emerging industry in New Zealand, professional services practitioners operate in franchising, legal and accounting, advertising, engineering, business consulting and many more. Key concerns for the sector are skilled workforce shortages, staff retention and changing regulations.

Property & Construction

Enhancing the strain of permeating supply chain issues are complex regulatory challenges, project delays, labour shortages and reduced demand for commercial spaces. However, rising house prices are driving an increase in construction as are low interest rates and inbound investment.

Retail & Wholesale

Largely consisting of SME businesses, New Zealand’s highly competitive retail and wholesale industry attracts players from many overseas markets. While the pandemic had markedly different impacts on the various subsectors of the industry, eCommerce benefitted from the temporary shutdown of physical stores and increased online shopping – a trend which has continued.
