The Small Business Sector Report and Factsheet

An in-depth look at New Zealand’s small businesses.

The Small Business Sector Report

The first ever Small Business Sector Report takes an in-depth look at how New Zealand’s small businesses are performing. The report will help people understand better the nature of small businesses.

Small Business Factsheet

This factsheet is a good reference guide which complements the Small Business Sector Report.

It brings together previously released data from a range of Statistics New Zealand business surveys and summarises the results relating to small enterprises.


Small businesses, defined as enterprises with fewer than 20 employees, make up 97% of all enterprises in New Zealand and make a significant contribution to our economy and society.
