Business.govt.nz is the first-stop shop for business owners to understand their obligations with government. But business owners are people too. Starting in 2014, Govt.nz will become the place for individuals to find out how they can interact with government and it is being piloted online. You can influence the final look and feel for this new site just by using it and passing on your feedback.
Previously, understanding how government services work for individuals – and who to contact – could be time consuming and confusing. With a clear mobile-friendly design and plain-English content, the new website is tailored to help people find the right information first time. With a few clicks, users can find out about things like product safety, recalls and alerts, and about a variety of tasks like how to apply for a passport, update a vehicle licence, and pay tickets and fines.
