Please help!I entered the hospitality industry as a buiness owner about a year ago right before the first lockdown in Wellington. And Im struggling. I dont know where to begin. Regularly I work all the hours of the business (a small cafe) in a great spot but my lack ofbusiness knowledge including finance and forecasting is showing and its showing in my bank accounts. 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,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
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
The majority of our summer bookings have canceled, I’m not sure I can keep my guides working.

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.

Can you recommend an accountant that understands the type of business that I operate? I am a Traditional and Contemporary Maori weaving artist. I cover a range of services within my business such as Tutoring, Contracts with organisations, Markets and Hauora Maori.
When business is still pretty fresh and there is no guaranteed income …just hope… How do I start paying myself? In a previous”business” I never paid myself but this time around I’m turning a profit and want to start paying myself something even if just small. Just want to make sure I’m doing that by the book.It won’t be a salary as such as turnover is not super high /consistent yet.Do I start on a commission based model maybe?For context : I’m a Sustainable Stylist and offer personal wardrobe styling services, personal shopping services and I resell preloved clothing ( both on consignment from Clients and items I’ve sourced secondhand)
Kia ora. Would love some advice on how to structure my payment system to contractors. My business is all online. A portion of my business will be bringing in facilitators who I’ll be hiring to do the work. The work is created by the facilitator but ownership belongs to the business. Rather than giving them an hourly rate, I want to share the profits of the product they create for my business (75-25 %roughly) so they only get 75% of profit at the end of every month.My question is, what’s the best way to structurethis in terms of payments, taxes, accountability to IRD etc. also I’m very new to business. Is there anything I should be thinking about when paying people thank you
