The New Zealand Business Number (NZBN) is a unique identifier that links to core information on the NZBN Register about a business, known as Primary Business Data (PBD).
Since implementation of the NZBN began in 2016 we’ve received consistent feedback on the usefulness of the PBD and how it could be improved.
In response to that feedback we are proposing changes to the PBD, so it can offer maximum benefits to the businesses that consume this information. For example, adding a payment bank account number to facilitate finance and procurement transactions.
To gain an overview of the proposed changes, see the summary document.
We are pleased to invite submissions from all interested parties on the PBD change proposals in the discussion document.
If the proposed changes proceed as suggested, the overall number of PBD items would reduce slightly, but, we believe the changes would substantially improve the value of the PBD dataset to NZBN entities and the other agencies and businesses that access and use the PBD.

The deadline for submissions is 20 June 2018.
