Hi,I have a small beekeeping and transport business. I currently have $9200 in the business bank account. I have a monthly loan repayment of $495 coming out. I also have a business line of credit that i have never used. Its interest rate is at 10.85%. I have an unexpected cost that came up with a truck of mine which will cost $5905. I also have to buy some more bees at $2020. That will leave me with around $1275 cash in my business bank account for the month of April. Cash will start coming in around June 1st at $1000 a week.I am wondering if it is better to spend my cash from my bank or use the line of credit instead? just incase another unexpected cost comes up
Can I give my start up business a loan from my personal account to start with and charge my start up business interest market rate… and the business pay myself back on monthly basis – would that be the smartest way? So I can buy inventory and pay for product photo-shooting for website e-commerce and all other expenses to get the e-commerce ready (domain, website, designer…). Please, I would love a financial advise.
My business is centred around maatauranga Maaori servicing the needs of kura and schools interesting in developing digital resources on localised curriculum. I’m keen to see what funding is available to enable schools to invest in kaupapa Maaori resource design, build, piloting and implementation.
Kia ora, I’m seeking advice on how best to approach investors for a company I want to start up (the business is mainly alcohol sales and marketing. But a little of imports and exports (Aus and NZ). There are a lot of factors involved in the preparation of this business, and I don’t really have figures as to what is needed at this point.. I’ve done lots of research as to what is required, and I can yarn and sell it to you like nothing, but I’m not sure if this is the right approach. I don’t really know where to start.. Any advice on how to approach investors, and/or helping to turn this business venture in to a reality. Nga mihi.
Hello team Maanaki!I have a question about financial forecasting. We are about to pitch our business, we don’t have revenue yet as we have boot strapped the development of our MVP. Is there a tool, guideline or data I should be following when doing these predictions to keep them accurate.
Kia Ora!I have a micro business and run a tiny online streetwear vintage store. I’m doing everything right (or so I think?) face value, but definitely need help with accounting or finding a trustworthy accountant. I myself am not the greatest with numbers but I KNOW that there is something missing and I am unsure of where/who to turn to.Nga Mihi,Mere
Hi,I’m looking for some advice regarding collecting VAT (tax).As a result of Brexit – we (an NZ product manufacturing and retail business) will now be required to collect VAT for our UK customers. Despite wading through many online documents regarding this – and contacting NZTE – we are still left with many questions. (Eg: Do we need a UK bank account? How streamlined is the actual process of paying VAT – does it integrate in with Xero software etc? What are the other fiscal record-keeping obligations etc?)Most website say: “Refer to a Tax expert”.We are wondering:• Are there any businesses out there that have been through this process that we could perhaps liaise with regarding this? OR;• Does anyone know of any Tax Experts whom might be able to efficiently/effectively provide this information?Thanks!Terry

The possiblities are huge and the potential is there but Im not getting it right. Where do I go to first to start getting this thing moving? Properly! I am willing to learn and listen. I just need somewhere to start that will get the wheels turning!Thank you in advance!Pepa

Hi there – can anyone recommend an insurance provider for small businesses that would be able to provide contents insurance, coverage for our building less, and indemnity for our staff/business? Thank you
I started a hospitality business on a Marae in 2012. I want some help in financial management and keeping books up to date. Obviously, I am not good at doing this. I do not have a big annual turnover but if I managed this really well it could be an extremely successful business. I need to put a succession plan in place. It may be through the embarrassment that I don’t ask but I need to now. right now.
Hi my name is Ivan Huyzer. Currently studying Microgreens so I can start my little garage operation and supply Chefs and dairies with fresh ingredients. I have 2 spare bedrooms apart from my garage that I have no use for. I’m curious as to how I could fund such a project. I’ve been struggling to find any work at all. Any advice would be super helpful 🙂
We carried out construction work for someone under a contract that is based on an estimate. We are genuinely owed more than 600,000 which we have paid ourselves and the owner approved the variations but now refuses to pay. He tried to claim costs in fatal damages during suspension which are not fatal. Our biggest issue is we have spent more than 70k in legal fees defending ourselves whilst still operating to stay solvent and afloat. Is there someone or somewhere we can get a loan to afford the adjudication fees? And legal fees (expected 30k more) Is there anything in way of finance for legal or finance to boost our companies to allow us to get 10k left from this site under control?
Hi,I’m currently business planning and will be applying for the business grant through WINZ. It also needs to be within budget.Is there anyone who can look take a look through a bit of my plan and to see if there are costs I need to consider and if it falls within budget please? If it’s presentable I can apply for the grant and will get a mentor through Mentors NZ to assist me with perfecting my plan. I can’t get one at the moment as I don’t have $300 so if anyone is free to help me out I will highly appreciate it. Thank you.
