Hi, we own a small rental car business in Auckland and obviously the border closure has hit us hard so we are retraining to become driving instructors to hopefully provide us with income while the borders are closed. Our current company is a limited liability company with two directors (our selves). My question is do we have to set up a separate company for the instructor side or can we trade under the existing Limited company with a slight variation on the name which relates to the instructing side? or do we have to set up a company that has both companies trading under it? We intend to work in both companies side by side. And depending on your advice do we need to set up separate bank accounts, etc. Thank you for your time.
Good morning, We are looking for some advice. The situation is that we are planning to sell our ice cream in tubs and Tip Top have trademarked the name Dulce De
Leche on all frozen dessert products. Dulce De Leche is a sweet caramel
like spread and one that we make in house and use in our desserts, sell in jars and also
make an ice cream out of it. We obviously can’t sell the Ice Cream
as “Dulce De Leche” but have decided to name it “Dolce” (which is
Italian for sweet and also Lorena’s (one of the founders) grandmothers name) On the back of the tub we
would like to write a story about the name saying: Dolce is our traditional Argentinean
house-made dulce de leche. Named after our Nonna Maria, ‘Dolce’ also means
‘sweet’ in Italian. Or we could say
Dolce is made using our traditional
Argentinean house-made dulce de leche………etcI look forward to hearing from you. Regards, Hayley
Our business is under threat from a motorway and will be destroyed if the motorway design is approved. We have been denied any support with Legal costs from NZTA to explore our options. Do you have any advice?

RECOMMENDATIONS FOR BUSINESS BANK ACCOUNT?I’m a small startup who has recently incorporated my business as a LLC. Am I correct in thinking that it’s a legal requirement to have a business bank account? I’ve done a bit of research and it seems there are fees for everything (which wasn’t the case in UK)! Do you have any recommendations for banks that don’t indulge in daylight robbery to small startups? Our expected turnover will be $100k+. Thanks in advance!
Hi there I’m looking for advise on trademarks for my business.am looking at launching into the cannabis industry and wondering about branding and marketing trademarks for a business that has a similar name overseas.the brand name is ‘Lewcid’ whilst there is an existing company called lucid cannabis in Canada. While the trademark will likely be fine in nz I’m looking for advice for overseas markets if we tried to expand to countries where the Canadian company has also expanded to. I realise that while they are spelt differently there is a soundalike attribute to the names.are you able to advise on this and whether adding something like NZ to the brand is enough to differentiate overseas.thanks
Legal advice needed to challenge terms of a contract that was transferred but not agreed to for a Auckland GoGreen expo from the first lockdown in March (transfer notice received 2 days prior to show). We did not respond because the country still had community transfer and we did not foresee it being thoughtful to attend any expos this year. GoGreen automatically transferred our contract for the new dates (the end of this month) in which we did not cancel in time and they are now charging us a 100% cancellation fee. I would like to challenge their transfer of contract terms as well as cancellation terms as there is no way we feel it safe to risk our business to attend one of their shows. See below email (contact me direct for the original contract if needed however they say it doesn’t apply so am a bit confused). This email was received on the 26th of March, which is after the date they listed as notifying them if you couldn’t agree to the transfer terms.

I have a new business, I registered it in the companies office, and did a search before choosing the name and noone else existed – now all of a sudden there is a clothing line (I am not a clothing line) with the same name popping up – what should I do?
How can we get out of a commercial lease? We need to move into a space with less overhead however have 3 years left on our current lease. Our landlords have increased opex by 200% ($2700-$11k) and won’t budge on lessening our rent in the current times, which we cannot continue to afford.
Hi guys , Just been served PLA notice yesterday land lord seeking to cancel the lease what happens next once the lease is cancelled ?

I work in a retail store and due to restraint of trade (selling of old business) means we can not sell online untill Feb next year. Due to Covid 19 lockdown and fewer people wanting to enter retail stores we used social media and advertising online to gain more sales over the phone. Does this constitute breaking the restraint of trade? And would there be exceptions to this due to the current financial situation small businesses are in?
