Result 9 - Better for Business

Result 9 - Better for Business is making it easier for business customers to deal with government

Government services are complex and fragmented. Businesses find it takes more effort to deal with government than it should.

The Better for Business partnership is changing this as part of the Government’s Better Public Services programme.

It's about business spending less time on administration and having more time to focus on their customers

Better for Business matters for New Zealand businesses, watch this video to find out why:

We are making government services better for business by

  • Joining up government services
  • Sharing information across government
  • Using digital and online tools
  • Simplifying processes
  • Using third parties to co-design and co-deliver services.


We created the Result 9 Accelerator and supported the development of theNew Zealand Business Number.


We are making inroads, but there is still a way to go

Businesses are spending less effort dealing with government now than they did in 2012, but we still have a lot of work to do.
