Core Modules

Our core modules cover areas of law that any New Zealand organisation
must comply with.

Anti-Bribery and Corruption

New Zealand has strong anti-corruption laws, and is perceived as one of the least corrupt countries in the world. New Zealand organisations play an important role in helping to ensure that this perception is accurate and in contributing to the goal of eliminating bribery and corruption worldwide.  This module not only outlines your organisation’s obligations, but also provides practical guidance on steps you can take to ensure that your bribery and corruption risks are identified and minimised.

Company Law

This module provides guidance on your compliance obligations, from setting up and operating your company through to winding it up. We have reviewed all key legislation administered by the Financial Management Authority, Registrar of Companies of the New Zealand Ministry for Business, Innovation and Employment and other key government bodies.

Consumer Law

A complex and ever-changing area of law, this module provides you with a practical explanation of your obligations with regard to your customers, and how you can meet them. We have reviewed all key legislation regulated by the Commerce Commission.


Covering all jurisdictions, this module uncovers your compliance obligations across the entire employment life cycle – from recruitment to employment contract obligations, right through to fair treatment in the workplace and more.


The New Zealand Environment module assists an organisation to meet compliance with environmental consents, permits, approvals, permissions, licences and authorisations. This module also assists an organisation on how to adopt a proactive culture across its business activities and operations, and take appropriate actions such as record-keeping, notification and reporting.


Regardless of which industry you are in, privacy issues affect us all. The Privacy module identifies and guides your organisation through the compliance obligations regulated by the Privacy Commissioner surrounding the secure collection, management and maintenance of personal information.

Social Media

With the use of social media platforms in the workplace being more commonplace, the issue of legal repercussions of such use becomes unavoidable. This is especially the case for organisations intending to monitor their employees’ conduct on social media. The New Zealand Social Media module is relevant to organisations relying on social media as a business tool, examining these issues through the lens of a variety of laws including employment, work health and safety, human rights, fair trading, privacy, defamation, gambling and copyright laws. While these laws do not yet fully cater for the use of social media by organisations, the module provides guidance on social media obligations through policies, procedures and other measures.


The NZ Tax module informs organisations of the requirements they must with regard to income tax, employment-related tax, fringe benefit tax and GST. Land and property tax, gaming duties and levies, importation tariffs and excise duties, international tax and reports and returns may also be relevant to an organisation. Organisations need to be aware of the Commissioner’s powers, such as obtaining information and conducting audits, in order to remain compliant.

Workplace Health & Safety

Everyone has legal responsibilities to protect the health and safety of people in the workplace. This  module outlines the duties of organisations, workers and other relevant parties with respect to workplace health and safety.
