As an alternative to loans, we’re considering seeking investment. Is there some simple-to-understand guidance around raising capital under the new laws, which I think make the process simpler if the amount sought is under $2 million? I’ve looked and all I can find is website platforms charging fees to “train” small business owners in how to prepare an offer, for a fee, and they then promote the offer. For another fee! I’m (the GM) trained in business (GAICD), and marketing and PR (APR) so I don’t need their “training”, but I do need to be certain that any documentation we provide is within the law.And / or would a lawyer be prepared to help us, even if it’s simply checking the final document. (Although a business, we are the operating arm of a charity, and all profits go to that charity).

We are a start up working to develop our idea to MVP and to pitch to investors. We have a specialist in the technical field who has agreed to a JV with us and we need assistance with what to consider in drawing up an agreement.
I have been approached by someone who wants to work as a sales executive on a commission only basis. He has a full time job (night shift) and wants to do this as a side hustle. We have worked with him before so both sides are keen to move forward. My question is about if it’s legal to have him as a contractor who is only paid on commission. The MBIE website does not give a clear answer and they have not replied when I asked this question.

i own a small business which was in lockdown for over 7 weeks, due to the financial hardship of this closure i approached the landlord for an early termination of my commercial lease and made an offer, i am waiting for a reply. Over the lockdown i have only paid a small portion of the lease and outgoings, as per my lease agreement.I have tried to negotiate the lease and bills payment (fair proportion) with the landlord, their reply was to pay in full. I noticed 4 days before level 2 came about the landlord had placed the premises up “For lease” and put signage up and was advertising with an agent. To date i have had no written or verbal notice. Has the landlord broke the terms of the lease agreement, and is this legal.
How have businesses dealt with commercial landlords who refuse to reduce rental payments, even though sales have decreased dramatically because of covid
We contract to a larger Refrigerated transport company, who also employ their own drivers? (Classes as essential service for food). Our contract says 5 nights per week, but if they have no work then don’t have to supply. They have run continually but stood down owner drivers in favour of company drivers, casuals and temping agencies for the same run we have done for the last 7 years. Can they do this?
My company is in door to door sales. We decided kid 2019 that the business had no future and started winding down operations. Last week the Commerce Commission telephoned to inform that they want to investigate our business as they received ‘complaints’. This was news to us as we believe our compliance regime was robust. From what I have read with Comcom, they will have a mandate to go after certain industries, and they will go in with a fine tooth comb to look for historical mistakes and then throw the proverbial book, desk, chair and whiteboard at a company in order to ‘send message’. My fear is that we do not have the resources to fight them as our intention is to fulfil our contractual obligations to our customers, repay debts and close the company. This news is causing me significant mental stress as I am just fearing the worse, not having the money or assets to hire lawyers. Do you have anyone who has experience dealing with Comcom whom I can talk to. Right now all I see are dark clouds and I cannot afford that, with a sound family depending on me.
Hi, I run a hairdressing salon and we sublet to a coffee cart style operation. We were unable to trade at all through levels 3 and 4 and the coffee shop operated a takeaway at level 3 only. Our rent is currently $12,503 per month and the landlord initially advised we had to pay the entire amount. We do have a no access clause enabling us to determine fair rent and when I pointed this out he had indicated that 50% is fair. However our revenue is down 100% and I have offered him 25% for the level 3 and 4 period and full rent from yesterday. He has not agreed to that and we are now looking into mediation. However, the fees for the mediator are $3000 + GST while the amount disputed is just shy of $3k – he seems happy to proceed but I don’t want to pay this sort of fee. Do I have to proceed to mediation and what are my options from here? We still have 19 months on the lease and have signed personal guarantees so walking away is not an option. He is aware that the rent is a struggle and we currently pay between $50 and 70k a year to keep the salon at a nil loss position.

Hello I have had a creditor who has put a debt collection agency onto us for a bill that was due on 20th February 2020. We have since paid the debt in full but now I have received a bill from the debt collection agency for $200 costs and $76 interest. I’m not even sure I have sign a application for credit with the creditor as we first started dealing with them 15 years ago. Should I pay the collection fees and interest, or ask for more information. The original amount was $950.Thanks
