An Australian based company – Austco Pty Limited, secures the sale of an item of machinery to a customer in New Zealand. Austco does not have (and does not need) any physical or legal presence in NZ. The NZ customer does not have import experience or facilities and would prefer not to have the hassle of having to import the machine themselves.
Austco contracts Global to act as its administrative agent for the sale. Global then imports the machinery, clears customs, pays GST at the border and warehouses the machine. Global then invoices the NZ customer and delivers the goods. The NZ Customer pays Global for the machine and Global pays Austco.
Everyone is happy and the NZ customer has a simple and efficient purchase experience.
Austco Pty Limted
A French international company, Frenchco, has a number of customers in New Zealand but does not have an office, a sales team or warehouse facilities in NZ. Even though Frenchco has a number of NZ customers with regular sales, Frenchco does not want to incur the cost and complications of setting up a NZ company to service their NZ customers.
Frenchco contracts Global to be their administrative agent in NZ. Global undertakes regular imports of Frenchco products, stores the goods in their warehouse and ultimately delivers to the NZ customers.
Frenchco maintains the sales relationship with their NZ customers and simply advises Global each time a sale takes place. Global takes over from there and looks after the regular import, warehousing, distribution, invoicing and payment collection for all Frenchco sales.
