My perception of starting a business was prior to actually starting the process was the dread of how much red tape was involved and what order things happen in. Ironically doing a business degree is less about starting a business and just how to work inside a business. The companies office was a little tedious but creating an online profile means any part of the process could be saved and returned to once I found the information they needed. The banking was a different decision and thought I’d go with a new bank rather than my personal bank as I like supporting innovation so after a very friendly trip to my local Titirangi Post shop I signed up to Kiwibank. Their online services are excellent and they may get all my personal banking in time. Check them out: Business banking – Kiwibank Now for IRD… Yikes.
