Starting a business in New Zealand

Plan Basics


Purchasing Products
All Warehouse Ordering Independent Business Owners purchase products directly from Amway.

Rebate Payments
Rebate payments are paid by direct credit (i.e. electronic transfer direct into their bank account) to all Independent Business Owners who have earned a rebate in that calendar month.

PV/BV Transfers
PV/BV transfers are available to all Independent Business Owners.

Single Line of Sponsorship
Australia & New Zealand operate as a single line of sponsorship. International sponsoring is not allowed between these two countries. Business volume generated in both countries will be consolidated for yearly qualifications and bonus purposes. This Single Line Of Sponsorship is used for personal sponsoring and bonus calculation (since September 2005). All businesses prior to this date are under the International sponsor rules (benefits for annual bonus calculation only for Emeralds and above).

Establish a Second Business

International Sponsoring
International sponsoring is always an option and an excellent means of expanding your business while avoiding many of the costs and complexities associated with establishing a second business. Please note: For those markets where foreigners are able to establish a second business, they must be the international sponsor of their second business in another country.

As complex business and legal issues are involved, Independent Business Owners should always contact the affiliate at and obtain the advice of local legal counsel before attempting to establish a second business.

There are several business options available for establishing a second business in New Zealand, each with its own legal requirements (a local bank account, Management Agreement and Non-resident Agreement are required for all). You will want to consult with a local attorney to obtain advice on which would be the best vehicle to accomplish your business goals.

Generally you will find the costs reasonable. Any business activities will require obtaining a visa. This can be done by contacting the New Zealand Embassy in your country of residence. The extent of these activities will dictate the type of visa required. It is important that you work with a local attorney to be certain that you obtain the correct visa for your intended activities, and that your activities do not go beyond what is allowed by your particular visa.

Amway Services New Zealand Limited
New Zealand Taxation and other legal requirements are such that Independent Business Owners who wish to offer services (i.e., insurance) must contract with an additional entity when they join the business. There is no cost involved in Independent Business Owners joining Amway Services New Zealand Limited outside the previously stated application fee. Independent Business Owners automatically become Independent Business Owners of Amserv when they sign up as Amway New Zealand Independent Business Owners.
