• BDO COVID-19 Business Support Hub

New Zealand business and Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Kia Ora. Welcome to our COVID-19 Business Support Hub. All BDO offices across New Zealand are open from 6 December 2021 and closely following the Government's COVID-19 guidelines. 

As we move into the new traffic light system, please be assured that your safety and wellbeing is paramount. When you visit our offices we will be adhering to all government guidelines. We’re proud that 97% of our staff nationwide have chosen to disclose that they are or will soon be fully vaccinated. For those who have not disclosed or are not fully vaccinated, we will have additional protocols in place to ensure they are protected, and that all our people and the communities in which we operate are protected also. All protocols and policies will be in line with government public health advice.

With the majority of cases occurring in Auckland, all employees and visitors to our Auckland offices (Takapuna, CBD and East Tamaki) are currently asked to share evidence of a valid My Vaccine Pass.

Please follow the Government’s COVID-19 webpage here outlining the latest on financial support for businesses, connect with your BDO adviser and watch this webpage for more help in navigating the current outbreak.

The impact of COVID-19 on New Zealand businesses and their balance sheets is unprecedented. Although the level and type of threats vary greatly across businesses, executives and boards need to rapidly assess their exposure and prepare response plans to ensure they can generate sufficient cash to survive.

To assist you in safeguarding your business, and keeping your business running, our advisers have developed a range of resources. We cover the following topics:
