Over the last few years we’ve been working with the New Zealand Companies Office on a number of initiatives to improve online trust between businesses.
They are a great bunch at the Companies Office. They “get” technology and like to deliver. Over the past few months they’ve delivered a stable URL (a hyperlink) for each company on the New Zealand Companies Office Register and a badge you can put on your site. This allows your trading partners to see quickly who is behind your business.
There has been many times when I’ve wanted to find out who I was dealing with, especially when buying goods online. We think that if you know who you are dealing with, it does make you more likely to do business with them.

We have added this to our About page which you can see here: http://xero.com/about
How do I get my New Zealand Companies Office badge?
Simply log in to the Companies website, find your company, and under MY TOOLS you’ll see the option below.
Congratulations to the Companies Office. A very nice step forward.
