Are you searching for a business in New Zealand or do you want to sell your New Zealand business?


Business for sale - Buy an established business in New Zealand

The benefits of buying an established business as opposed to starting a new venture from scratch are obvious: A newcomer to New Zealand can take advantage of a well-established customer base and at the same time acquires instant local market knowledge. 

Buying an existing business will not only help you to generate an income for you and your family, but can also be a vehicle for obtaining a permanent residence permit for New Zealand, as it might represent the foundation for a Business Visa application.

Businesses that tend to be especially popular with immigrants are typically - but not exclusively - based in the tourism and hospitality sectors.

Motels, camping grounds, backpackers, restaurants and cafes and New Zealand´s famous adventure tourism operations are all possible ventures that might suit the lifestyle a migrant is looking for.

Farewell Spit Nature Reserve is of international importance, jutting some 30km into the Tasman Sea, with saltmarshes, open mudflats, freshwater brackish lakes and dunes providing habitats for over a hundred bird species. The unusual shape of the coastline sadly seems to fool whales' navigation systems and beachings are common here. Take a guided safari tour in a 4WD bus to the old Farewell Spit lighthouse, the tour buses will pick you up at our gate, we are happy to arrange bookings for you.
Alternatively you can walk to the outer beach (2km) and inner beach (4km); both provide good views of the spit.
