Limited partnerships to have NZBN as primary identifier

New Zealand Law Society

All limited partnerships registered on the New Zealand Companies Office Business Registers platform will from now on have the New Zealand Business Number (NZBN) as their primary identifier. In October this year the Limited Partnerships Registers were moved to the Business Registers platform - already home to sole traders, partnerships, trusts and public sector entities. The NZBN will eventually replace the legacy numbers for limited partnerships, and all other business entities. A unique form of identification, the NZBN links to key information businesses are most often required to share, meaning they don't have to repeat this information multiple times.
