Pensions in New Zealand

The KiwiSaver is a voluntary workplace retirement savings programme in New Zealand. If an employee signs up for KiwiSaver, the company must make a contribution.

An employee has the option of making a contribution of 3%, 4%, 6%, 8%, or 10% of their salary. In addition, workers have the opportunity to withdraw from KiwiSaver at any time during the first eight weeks of participation.

The NZ Super is a non-contributory public pension system in New Zealand. Those who meet the residency requirements for New Zealand Super and are 65 or older are eligible for the benefit.

New Zealand Healthcare Benefits

New Zealand has a universal public healthcare system that is one of the best in the world. In 1938, New Zealand passed the Social Security Act, which mandated free and accessible healthcare for all. 

All residents of New Zealand must be provided with the same level of care in a comprehensive, preventative health system, as mandated by the Act. New Zealand citizens, residents, and those on valid work visas for 2 or more years are covered.

In addition to this, the Accident Compensation Corporation Program provides free medical care for accidental injuries to everyone in New Zealand.

Frequently Asked Questions

Payrolling the employees is a key part of the service offered by an employer of record company. The EOR will calculate and remit all taxes, social securities and similar payments, on behalf of both employer and employee. The client will be invoiced in advance by the EOR company, for the total cost of the payroll.

Yes. Our clients are free to dictate the structure of the employees’ remuneration including any bonuses or commissions they wish to offer. In some countries, there is a statutory requirement to provide “bonuses”, for example in the form of Christmas or holiday allowances.

Yes. Agility EOR will calculate what pay is due upon termination of an employee, factoring in such things as any untaken leave entitlements.

We find that most of our clients are in the Tech, IT, Finance and Professional Services industries. However, we have acquired the skills, knowledge and experience to help all industries across the globe.

As a private company, we’re not beholden to shareholders or asset-shredding Private Equity targets. We aim to build long-term relationships with our clients. At Agility EOR, our approach is that we never forget that our business is all about people. Our Employer of Record solutions are tailored to each requirement, not a one-size-fits-all tech platform. We do the right thing by our clients and by the laws of each country we operate in. And we believe in openness; if we don’t feel we can offer you the best solution for a specific territory, we’ll say so. 

We pride ourselves on our personable-approach so once you enter your new employees details into our dedicated platform, we’ll arrange a call with you to go through the details of the employment contract where together we can review and amend to your requirements. We liaise directly with your employee to build a rapport and obtain the necessary information to hire them compliantly, and set them up ready for their first payroll.

We never stop delivering! Even if you’re employee has been onboarded and is happily working for you and being paid each month, we’re here to partner with you whenever you or your employees need us. Even your ex-employees may need our assistance for tax documents, proof of employment requests etc… Our service never stops!
