Backing start-ups and new business in Taranaki

It can be tough getting your business off the ground in a competitive world and often business owners can get easily bogged down in the day to day of running their business. To help you get underway in your new venture, BDO is offering a unique service to support those new to business in Taranaki - the BDO Business Incubator.

At BDO, we understand the pressures of starting up a new business. The BDO Business Incubator assists with accounting and tax administration while getting you up to speed on the fundamentals of business which can sometimes take a backseat to what really matters - getting your business off the ground and making sales happen.

As a BDO Business Incubator member we will work to understand your needs and establish a package that is right for you, paid as a fixed monthly fee, so there is no surprises at year end. We offer a discount for the first two years to get you underway.

The Incubator Package includes:

Dedicated BDO adviser

As a BDO client you will have the whole BDO team behind you as well as a dedicated adviser. Your adviser will have a comprehensive understanding of your business needs so can assist you where you need it most. They will check in regularly, ensure you are meeting your compliance requirements and maximising the capabilities of your software package.

Updates for New and Emerging Businesses

We provide regular mailers to our BDO Business Incubator clients. In these mailers we aim to keep you up to date with the latest on all things relevant to new and emerging businesses. As well as keeping you ahead on our upcoming events, each mailer contains useful tips, tricks and insights that will help to save you time to focus on growing your business and achieving success.

Professional networks

Whether you are looking for a lawyer, different options for funding or an intensive high growth programme let us know and we can guide you to someone right for your needs.


As your business reaches certain milestones BDO can facilitate funding through various organisations. We are an approved training provider for the RBP Voucher Funding Schemes which are available through Venture Taranaki on behalf of New Zealand Trade and Enterprise. They can fund up to 50% of the cost of your training.

Software discounts and set up

We have partnered with software providers MYOB, Xero and Reckon to provide some free and specially discounted accounting software packages for our members. Our specialist BDO software team members can also offer free basic set up and initial training on these packages.
