The Maori economy is now estimated at $50bn, but managing large investments comes with great responsibility. Maori-owned businesses are unique because they are driven not just by financial outcomes but by the principles of kaitiakitanga (responsibility), manaakitanga (supporting people) and taonga tuku ihi mo nga uri whakatipu (guardianship of resources for future generations).

What are the key legal and cultural factors you need to take into account when working with firms which do business with Maori entities? How do we ensure that Maori legal and financial structures meet their cultural and ethical responsibilities? How does the tax system work for and against iwi? The specialist Te Wake Ture team at Chapman Tripp will walk you through what you need to know. 

Learning outcomes:

  • Gain a deeper understanding of the post-settlement governance model.
  • Learn more about how the tax system affects Maori .
  • Learn the pros and cons of using limited partnerships.
  • Gain insights into how to do business with Maori  entities.
