Overseas investment

Anderson Lloyd successfully advises a broad range of overseas clients on investing in New Zealand.  In particular, we have significant expertise of obtaining consent from the Overseas Investment Office (OIO) for business acquisitions, commercial projects and property transactions.

The consent process is not straightforward and can be time consuming and we are well able to help you navigate this process.

Our expertise covers all aspects of the OIO process including:

  • advising on whether OIO consent is required for a transaction
  • assisting with, and drafting, OIO applications
  • liaising with the OIO throughout the consent process
  • obtaining consents and advising on consent conditions.
