Grandfathered NZBN

Last Updated: Dec 08, 2015 12:04PM NZDT

Updated New Zealand Business Number for approximately 600 companies.


At the end of October, approximately 600 New Zealand companies were given a one off opportunity to use their Global Location Number (GLN) as their New Zealand Business Number (NZBN). These companies had been using the 13-digit GLN as a form of identification when trading in New Zealand and overseas. This opportunity only applies to those identified companies. All new companies will continue to be assigned a new NZBN upon incorporation.
