Sorin wrote the post • 1 comments • 45 views • 2021-01-29 13:41 • added this tag no more than 24h

What you get with this Offer
 
Social Media Marketing (SMM) 
 
for small businesses is a popular topic these days. These are indeed powerful tools in your marketing war chest, but like anything else you need a strategy behind it. Without a social media strategy your time and efforts can and will face plant on the sidewalk of good intentions.

Struggling to find the time to run your social media accounts ?
Want to drive targeted UK Traffic to you social media accounts and your website ?
Have you been let down by your previous social media manager ?

We have managed successfully international brands and businesses from all UK, USA, France, Hong Kong, Germany, China, Australia, Africa, Russia, and Canada.

Effectively running a social media campaign takes careful planning, time and commitment to reach your objectives. Our Social Media Management service takes complete care of your social media presence.

*** I Adopt a Strategy That Works for your Business

We start by establishing your core objectives. Do you want to increase brand awareness? Increase sales? Increase your followers? We’ll spend time learning about your business and then just as importantly, learning about your customers; what makes them tick and how we can engage with them on Social Media.

*** Engagement

There’s little point sending arbitrary tweets into the wild: Every post will be designed with your objectives in mind. Using the latest technology, we’ll also monitor your brand and relevant conversations and engage with relevant users at the right time.

*** Social Growth

Part of our core strategy will be to grow your following. Increased relevant followers lead to increased engagement and more opportunities to reach your objectives. I will work hard to deliver the right message to the right social media users and build a captive audience.

Your account manager will act and work to be your best ambassador to promote your business and generate leads.

This Social Media Management Package will cover two of the following social platforms:

*** TWITTER
*** FACEBOOK
*** LINKEDIN
*** INSTAGRAM
*** GOOGLE PLUS

PS: Suitable for fashion , hospitality , ecommerce, technology , healthcare , beauty , business, cleaning , insurance, finance, education , project management or consulting sectors

The Brisbane bike hire memberships are now reduced from a whopping $3 a month to now be TOTALLY FREE!

Hunt free stuff wrote the post • 0 comments • 24 views • 2021-01-25 11:10 • added this tag no more than 24h

The Brisbane bike hire service that has been notoriously underused since its inception nearly a decade is finally coming to a close, with this year seeing them transitioned out in place of eBikes: https://www.brisbane.qld.gov.a ... oning

What this means is that memberships are now reduced from a whopping $3 a month to now be TOTALLY FREE!

If you ride over 30 minutes, you will be charged a small fee, however I will share a helpful tip to completely avoid that. There are a bunch of 'bonus' stations littered around the city, and if you dock at them, you get 15 bonus minutes attached to your account, which are only deducted if you use the bike for an amount of time you would usually be charged for. Through planning my routes around these stations, I very quickly racked up 10 hours of bonus minutes, meaning there is no chance I will ever be charged again, nor have to worry about going a few minutes over. You can even cycle back & forth between a 'bonus' and 'non-bonus' station, and the 15 bonus minutes will keep piling onto your account: http://www.citycycle.com.au/Ne ... le...

I personally think the whole service was pretty underrated for only a couple of bucks a month, and the horrible website/machine interface paired with laughable marketing really stopped it ever getting off the ground. I'm also pretty disappointed that the Brisbane City Council signed a TWENTY YEAR contract for these bikes back in 2010, and now have to give JCDecaux free prime real estate advertising space all around the city for the next 10 years for nothing in return (but let's not get political…….). https://www.brisbanetimes.com. ... an...

Here is hoping the eBikes are a welcome modern addition & help more people feel confident using public transport to get where they need!

Fees

The first 30 minutes of every trip is FREE!

31 minutes to 60 minutes - $2

Every 30 minutes after - $5 each

A security deposit of $48 will only be debited if you fail to comply with the Terms and Conditions of CityCycle or if a bike is not returned within 24 hours. view all

Freebies|Free Access to 7,000+ Australian / International Newspapers & Magazines

Reposting this as this is still Free and available.

You will also have access to various Australian print media (magazines & selected newspapers*) but also a variety of international newspapers & magazines. Many subscription based newspaper companies (ie. The Age, Herald Sun, New York Times) are not available. Although there still are many other newspapers to select from (which may offer you a differing editorial view/opinion).

To access Press Display you will need to register as a National Library of Australia (NLA) user and membership is FREE.
The library card registration is open for all Australian residents which also have a local home address as they will send you a library card which contains your membership ID number. 
This offer is only available to residents of Australia who also have a local home address. Obtaining a library membership is NOT available for International persons including those living abroad
The library card will be valid for 2 years and you can renew this online should this expire (your card will still be valid if you do so) it also do not matter which State you live in as this service is provided nationally.
If you have a NLA membership already but are currently overseas, you will need to connect to a Aussie based VPN server due to geo-blocking restrictions.

Unfortunately, log onto PressReader is done via the NLA webpage so do not bother trying to download any mobile apps as access is handled through the NLA page before you can access the PressReader mainsite. Viewing of content is best done on a desktop computer / laptop / large screen tablet (not recommended for mobiles).

Libary Card Registration https://www.nla.gov.au/getalib ... ation
Library Card has to be received as you need your membership ID number to log into the NLA

Was walking to Central via Railway Square.
Transport staff are handing out free face masks.

Railway Square on that island strip bus stop, George St side.
Central, just before the escalator heading to Platform 16 to 23 from the Grand Concourse!

Probably got about 5pc between the two staff I met on the way to my train. view all

Eligibility and property price restrictions for the New Zealand Government's first-time home purchase allowance

Ariadne wrote the post • 0 comments • 40 views • 2021-01-11 15:55 • added this tag no more than 24h

In order to enable New Zealanders to own their own homes, the New Zealand Government has introduced a "first-time home purchase subsidy policy" in previous years, including Auckland, Wellington, Tauranga, Hamilton, Christchurch and other major Cities in New Zealand, first-time buyers of self-housing, if they meet certain qualifications, can apply to the New Zealand Government for subsidies.

To qualify for a first-time buyer's allowance, the applicant must:

Over the past 12 months, single buyers have been required to earn less than NZ$85,000 a year in pre-tax income, and partners have been required to earn less than NZ$130,000 in total
There were no properties under the name at the time of application
KiwiSaver has paid at least the lowest percentage to his pension plan for more than three years
Live in a house you plan to buy for at least six months
Buy a property that does not exceed the upper house price limit in the area where the home is purchased
In addition, the subsidy scheme limits the price of the "most expensive" property that a subsidized applicant can purchase, depending on the old and new of the property purchased by the applicant and the region in which it is located, up to the following:

Buy a second-hand home of no more than $600,000 or a new home of no more than $650,000 in Oakland or Queenstown Lake
Buy second-hand homes of no more than $500,000 or no more than $550,000 in Hamilton, Tauranga, West Lothian Bay, Capiti Coast, Porirua, Upper Hurt, Hurt, Wellington, Tasman, Nelson, Christchurch and Selvin
Buy a second-hand home in the rest of New Zealand for no more than $400,000 or no more than $450,000 for a new home view all

New Zealand Small Car Road Tax eliminates the tiered rate VRR

Ariadne wrote the post • 0 comments • 43 views • 2021-01-11 15:54 • added this tag no more than 24h

In previous years, the New Zealand Government had adopted a policy of charging different tax rates based on different safety rating models in order to encourage New Zealanders to change to newer models in order to reduce road accident rates and ACC (Accident Compensation Authority) compensation for casualties in the event of an accident.

The policy ended less than three years after it failed to achieve the desired results, and the ACC no longer imposed different rates on models of different safety levels (Variable Vehicle Rating - VRR) and returned to the flat rate.

Return to consistent rates, New Zealand's private car (gasoline) price is (including online payment management fees and GST):

Three months, NZ$30.56
Half year, NZ$56.73
One year, 109.16 NZD

Steps by New Zealand companies to lay off employees

Sylvie wrote the post • 0 comments • 26 views • 2021-01-03 19:47 • added this tag no more than 24h

In a difficult business environment, the survival of the company is a worry, in order to avoid the point of bankruptcy, many companies will choose to "redundancy" this way, to streamline the workforce, improve staff efficiency, reduce wage costs. In a country like New Zealand, where the protection of employees' rights and interests is too great, the word layoff is not something that employers say casually, it needs to go through a very rigorous process before it can be reasonably legal and allow the company to move forward lightly.

Redundancy, the English language, usually goes through the process of "restructuring" the restructure before a New Zealand company can move forward with the layoff process. Even a "reorganization" is not that simple, it needs to be "processed correctly", otherwise employers can easily be sued by employees to the Employment Tribunal.

In New Zealand, restructuring is usually "parallel" to downsizing, and employers must follow the steps below to carry out the employee restructuring lay-off process.

Establish a document to restructure the workforce, write down specific steps on paper, and then communicate with employees, while employers need to be clear in the process of "talking" to employees, to clarify the significance of the reorganization, the company's restructured team structure, how the reorganization will affect the existing structure, can retain or will be abolished positions, or can be transferred to the position what
Notify potential layoffs, whether in writing or e-mail, invite them to meet for an interview; of course, there are a number of employees who are not doing well in the company, and when the personnel department or the boss "invites a talk", the employee needs time to prepare, and if the employee has a problem with his or her position, the employee can bring a legal counsel (support person) with him or her during the interview; Silicon Valley's morning e-mail noon meeting to inform layoffs doesn't work in New Zealand.
Meet with employees to inform employees at meetings about how they are prepared to restructure the company as an employer, as well as potential employees' lay-offs and transfers, and to inform them of the specific timing process;
Collect feedback, remember that it must be collected in writing. Employees will be laid off, often in a bad way, so employees sometimes go to great pains to give back to the employer, whether it's hard to answer or not, and the employer must first document the feedback because it's part of the standard process (and it's important)
Employers carefully consider employee feedback, such as that employees will threaten to "sue the employer", or that employees find it difficult to find their next job because of "insufficient notice time", or that employees say" can go, and that the employer will compensate me for a certain amount of time for my salary
Determine the reorganization or lay-off, if the first five steps are completed and you still can't find a new position for the laid-off employee, then I'm sorry, the company is not a charity, the employees who should go must go. Employers are required to give written notice of the employee who has been laid off or transferred, how the employer has considered it, and how to respond to feedback submitted by the employee, and must give the employee a certain amount of time to follow up on the layoff, which can be one-on-one or one-on-one.
Meet face-to-face with the laid-off employee to inform the company that the employment contract will be terminated, as well as the steps you asked to leave and the point at each step. If an employee suggests that a "support person" is required to attend (usually a lawyer or union lawyer, the employee takes a last-ditch effort), the employer must agree. During the meeting, confirm all steps with the employee twice and answer any questions the employee may have about the termination of employment.
The final step is to print out the exit checklist, get the employee to sign it, and have the employee return the company's property (e.g. mail, computer login, door card, company car, company computer, company phone, etc.)
Finally remind the vast number of employers, do not think that "the operating environment is not good" can be arbitrary lay off employees Oh, do not think that the job/redundancy is so easy, especially the English is not good enough to be well-versed in the law of Chinese employers, in New Zealand to eat a lot of employees' losses, any compensation is tens of thousands of New Zealand dollars, if there must be layoffs, and employees may be "hedgehogs", remember that employers also want to find a third party labor relations lawyer to do a good job. view all

Can New Zealand police take your DNA samples?

Sylvie wrote the post • 0 comments • 30 views • 2021-01-03 11:51 • added this tag no more than 24h

 
 
 
 
Western citizens' demands for privacy are high, and powerful state agencies, such as the New Zealand police, are often "cautious" in their dealings with citizens. In New Zealand, do you know when the police can ask you for a DNA sample? And what is the method of sampling? This article tells you some of the rules that New Zealand police must follow when taking DNA samples from others.

If the New Zealand Police arrest you for a criminal offence that could result in imprisonment, or intend to charge you with an item in the criminal offence, the New Zealand Police may request a DNA sample; If you are a suspect, but they do not have enough evidence to arrest you or prosecute you, the New Zealand police can only ask you to voluntarily provide samples, and if you refuse, the police can only go to a judge and obtain permission from the judge (warrant) to obtain samples from you. A court order that allows access to your DNA is called a "forced order."

Typically, when investigating less serious crimes, such as ordinary assault or intentional injury, the police will not be able to obtain a DNA sample from you without your consent;
 
 
 

In two cases, the police can legally ask you to provide a DNA sample:

In the first case, you are being arrested or about to be prosecuted, and if the police arrest you for a criminal offence that could result in imprisonment, or if they intend to prosecute you, they can legally ask you for a DNA sample. In such cases, a court order is not required.

If you are arrested or asked by the police for a DNA sample for reasons that could result in imprisonment, and you refuse, you could be fined up to NZ$2,000 or sentenced to three months in prison.

In the second case, the police have obtained permission from the court; if the police suspect that you have committed a crime that could result in imprisonment and you refuse to provide them with a DNA sample after they ask you to do so, the police can go to the District Court and ask the judge to order you to give a sample.
 
How long can new Zealand police keep my DNA samples?

If you are requested by the New Zealand Police to provide a DNA sample and the police have taken it, your DNA sample will be stored in Databank, a New Zealand Police DNA database, during the criminal investigation and until the court trial is completed. If the charges against you are not established, the database will immediately delete your DNA data at the request of the court, but if the charges are established and the offence is not serious, the New Zealand police and courts may permanently record your DNA information.

New Zealand roof self-checking and simple maintenance

Sylvie wrote the post • 0 comments • 26 views • 2021-01-03 11:38 • added this tag no more than 24h

Starting at the end of August each year, New Zealand's everything recovers and gradually enters its early spring season. At the turn of the season, it is still necessary to have a roof check on your house, which is usually recommended twice a year in New Zealand, in spring and autumn. Need to pay someone professional to help you check? Of course, if you're not bad money, feel free, but if you're not afraid of heights, you have adequate protection and enough confidence and hands-on ability to check on your own roof. After all, inspection is not "repair", quickly follow the following to carry out an "overview" of the roof, repair small problems, find large problems and ask professionals to repair.

If your roof is sloped (most common in New Zealand)

Check for any dark green, dark brown, brown stains that mean algae and fungi take root on the roof
Clean drains (cedes) to prevent falling leaves and silt from clogging
The tile-top houses, especially the "old tiles", may be blown by a winter wind and rain, and there will be small pieces of debris that need to be cleared
If you can see the discharge layer under the tiles, or if there is a large rust in the tin tiles, then you need to find someone to repair them and avoid leaking roofs
If your roof is flat (less common)

Check the flat top for cracks, New Zealand's flat top house, are more headaches
If there is air conditioning or exhaust equipment on the roof, check that the firmware secured to the roof is secure and rusty
If cracks, cracks, or waterproof layers are directly exposed, repair them immediately
Check the damage caused by the roof wind

Storms can wreak havoc on roofs, and unfortunately New Zealand often has high winds, heavy rain and storms during the winter months. In early spring, check the roof, if the tiles are lost or curled and cracked, you need to replace them immediately, and if the water leaks through the tiles, it will be more expensive to repair in the future.

Check on a piece-by-piece basis

Any blisters or spongy spots found during a roof inspection may mean that a professional roof repairman is required to repair or replace them.

Depending on the roof material, carry out a key inspection
Tin top

Focus on checking the iron connection and low-lying places whether there is water storage, rust, and even loopholes, timely repair or replacement of the entire iron roof is very important, remember in the rust-proof paint weak place, clean up, brush a special tin-top paint.

Tile top (concrete tile)

Shinwara need not worry too much, when the tile age of more than 15 years, the tile material has actually begun to appear aging and "fragile" phenomenon when the corners of the tile can easily fall off, while the tile may also be disconnected from the middle. Remember to check it out.

In addition, the top of the tile is easier to grow moss, when necessary sprayed with potions to kill moss. (Check out previous encyclopedic articles on how to kill moss from roofs)

Asphalt tile

Asphalt tile roofs are relatively new, not yet very much maintenance. The copper compounds produced by the copper-wire components added to them also kill algae and fungi that try to take root on the roof, so this tile is more worry-tinging. Asphalt tile in 15 to 20 years later is relatively easy to "foam", this time need to find professional roofers to carry out repairs.

Drains (sky ditches)

No matter what material of the roof, the trench must be cleaned up, otherwise, the accumulation of things inside all year round will become a bird's paradise and plant growth of the warmbed, once the trench damage, hundreds or even thousands of pieces to repair is not to run away, and the trench damage after the rain will form a "rain curtain", compared to the "unpleasant". view all

Of course, if you're not bad money, feel free, but if you're not afraid of heights, you have adequate protection and enough confidence and hands-on ability to check on your own roof. After all, inspection is not "repair", quickly follow the following to carry out an "overview" of the roof, repair small problems, find large problems and ask professionals to repair.

If your roof is sloped (most common in New Zealand)

Check for any dark green, dark brown, brown stains that mean algae and fungi take root on the roof
Clean drains (cedes) to prevent falling leaves and silt from clogging
The tile-top houses, especially the "old tiles", may be blown by a winter wind and rain, and there will be small pieces of debris that need to be cleared
If you can see the discharge layer under the tiles, or if there is a large rust in the tin tiles, then you need to find someone to repair them and avoid leaking roofs
If your roof is flat (less common)

Check the flat top for cracks, New Zealand's flat top house, are more headaches
If there is air conditioning or exhaust equipment on the roof, check that the firmware secured to the roof is secure and rusty
If cracks, cracks, or waterproof layers are directly exposed, repair them immediately
Check the damage caused by the roof wind

Storms can wreak havoc on roofs, and unfortunately New Zealand often has high winds, heavy rain and storms during the winter months. In early spring, check the roof, if the tiles are lost or curled and cracked, you need to replace them immediately, and if the water leaks through the tiles, it will be more expensive to repair in the future.

Check on a piece-by-piece basis

Any blisters or spongy spots found during a roof inspection may mean that a professional roof repairman is required to repair or replace them.

Depending on the roof material, carry out a key inspection
Tin top

Focus on checking the iron connection and low-lying places whether there is water storage, rust, and even loopholes, timely repair or replacement of the entire iron roof is very important, remember in the rust-proof paint weak place, clean up, brush a special tin-top paint.

Tile top (concrete tile)

Shinwara need not worry too much, when the tile age of more than 15 years, the tile material has actually begun to appear aging and "fragile" phenomenon when the corners of the tile can easily fall off, while the tile may also be disconnected from the middle. Remember to check it out.

In addition, the top of the tile is easier to grow moss, when necessary sprayed with potions to kill moss. (Check out previous encyclopedic articles on how to kill moss from roofs)

Asphalt tile

Asphalt tile roofs are relatively new, not yet very much maintenance. The copper compounds produced by the copper-wire components added to them also kill algae and fungi that try to take root on the roof, so this tile is more worry-tinging. Asphalt tile in 15 to 20 years later is relatively easy to "foam", this time need to find professional roofers to carry out repairs.

Drains (sky ditches)

No matter what material of the roof, the trench must be cleaned up, otherwise, the accumulation of things inside all year round will become a bird's paradise and plant growth of the warmbed, once the trench damage, hundreds or even thousands of pieces to repair is not to run away, and the trench damage after the rain will form a "rain curtain", compared to the "unpleasant".

How is the GST on employee benefits in New Zealand reported?

Sylvie wrote the post • 0 comments • 27 views • 2021-01-03 11:34 • added this tag no more than 24h

Free meals such as staff parking spaces and lunch evenings are rare in New Zealand, not only because New Zealand businesses are generally small and do not need to "feed" a canteen, but also because New Zealand has strict and high taxes on such "collateral benefits", known as FBT-Fringe Benefit Tax.

However, still can not avoid some rich and atmospheric companies, for employees to "profit" a variety of benefits, to retain high-quality and high-capacity personnel for their own enterprise services. So, if there is an "employee benefit tax", can a company "come back" some of the GST, or use the GST to offset a portion of the tax payable?

If a company's property is used for private use, then it is up to the situation to adjust the GST contribution. For example, the company bought a yacht, which is leased to make a profit for the company 60 percent of the time, and the company owner himself took his family fishing vacation. Then, 60% of the yacht price and operating expenses part can apply to the Tax Office for a GST refund, while the remaining 40% can not get GST back.

"If a business had "benefits" such as small low-interest loans to employees, overseas travel and life insurance, which were themselves GST exempt items, there would be no GST claim this time around.

If you're Sole Trader, Partner, Trust Member, or Associate Person, then most of the time "personal is using the company", this time you need to make additional special adjustments in the FBT project to match the GST Claim that needs to be made.

In general, FBT is a more sensitive and complex tax component, and the mixing of GST and "public-private" issues often requires more care. And IRD also likes to "care" these "public property private use" of the problem, in the above tax chase is very tight, if you do not understand the content of this aspect, either try not to appear FBT problems, or ask a professional accountant to help you with tax returns.
 
 
Employee benefit tax, known in English as Fringe Benefit Tax, or FBT, is a tax calculated by the New Zealand Revenue Department on the basis of the amount of benefits paid to employees by the Company. Benefits are enjoyed by employees, but welfare tax employees are not considered at all, and businesses and employers are responsible for calculating and filing them.

New Zealand's FBT was imposed mainly to expand tax programs to prevent businesses from avoiding tax by using welfare payments. Once upon a time, new Zealand did not tax employee benefits if they were provided in a non-cash manner, but employers and employees quickly formed a tacit understanding that employees did not require employers to provide the best wages, but required employers to pay themselves the necessary living expenses in various forms and issue them with "corporate benefits", which amounted to a significant loss of tax revenue for the Government. Based on this, the New Zealand government introduced the FBT system to curb "hidden tax evasion".

Many Chinese are registered in New Zealand small companies, these companies are the standard "one person's company", Owner is both the boss and employees, then if such a company buys a car, and the company owner personally does not have a private car, the New Zealand Internal Revenue Service IRD will be the company car as a "welfare" to calculate and charge a fairly high "welfare tax";

How high is new Zealand's welfare tax FBT? The answer is that it's very high, and usually if you have a professional accountant to account for your company, accountants may use professional time to help you lower the tax rate a little; Welfare tax avoidance" occurs. view all

What if the swimming pool in the yard of my home is judged to be ineligible?

Sylvie wrote the post • 0 comments • 28 views • 2021-01-03 11:29 • added this tag no more than 24h

The home has a sparkling swimming pool, and the property itself is a mansion, or a step closer to a "luxury house." Imagine not having to go to a shoulder-to-shoulder public swimming pool or a dangerous seaside wild swim in the summer, but simply having a cool home and getting into the water.

But the cost of maintaining a swimming pool is not low, and every fixed time (usually three years), City Council has to carry out a safety check of the pool, after all, as long as there is water, there may be some danger.

For pool inspection, the owner (the owner of the pool, usually the owner of the property) is required to pay, the city council's safety inspection staff will be the pool equipment, pool building standards and the pool protection measures (fence) to make a decision, if qualified, if not qualified, was issued pool / poo barriers non-compliant (Notice Fix to) notice?

When notified by Notice to Fix that the owner needs to suspend the use of the pool, the most common method of City Council is to inform you in the "correction notice" that the pool must be dried and that it must be kept out of the vicinity of the pool (fence locking, etc.). Then, after a security repair (e.g. high fences, reinforced fences, pool steps, etc.) in accordance with City Council's corrective advice, ask City Council inspectors to do re-inspection again until it is passed.

If the owner ignores Notice to Fix and continues to use the swimming pool, it could result in a fine of up to NZ$5,000, with potential criminal penalties.


Of course, some Chinese owners are buying a house with a swimming pool, but they don't really need this "luxury mansion model" of the blue-rippled pool, then if you receive notice of the request for rectification, you can apply directly with Council to remove the pool (remove pool from register), and find a licensed construction engineer, reasonable removal application and building planning, including how to safely and sturdy "landfill" the pool method and so on.

When City Council agrees to the request to remove the pool and waits for the construction to be completed, the city council will go to the site of the property to check the removal of the pool, and after qualifying, the city council will have removed the "pool" project, and there will be no "pool inspection" notice in the future. However, checking the process of pool removal still has to pay. view all

New Zealand travel, student and work visas are rejected, how do I apply for review?

Sylvie wrote the post • 0 comments • 28 views • 2021-01-03 11:27 • added this tag no more than 24h

If an applicant's application for a temporary visa such as a New Zealand student visa, work visa or tourist visa is refused by Immigration New Zealand, it may be for a variety of reasons, perhaps because the applicant has materials that are not qualified, where it is not perfect, perhaps because the applicant's conditions are not up to standard, or if the immigration officer's a more subjective determination of "rejection" (the immigration officer has this power); Ask the Immigration Department to re-apply your application.

First, you must meet the following criteria to be able to request a review of your temporary visa:

At the time of the request for review, the applicant was in New Zealand
At the time of the request for review, the applicant has a valid New Zealand visa (even a transitional visa)
A review must be filed within fourtean days of rejection by the Immigration Department (not a working day, it is a natural two weeks, and remember that the weekend is not open)
Although Immigration New Zealand has a well-established website platform to accept all types of visas online, there is no place for the review of rejected temporary visas to be completed or submitted online.

What applicants need to do is:

A formal, English-language written e-mail is written and signed by a letter requesting an immigration review
The letter includes information about your application being rejected and any additional evidence you can submit
Your passport
Credit card information (for payment, currently NZ$220 once), including number, expiration date, cardholder name, cardholder signature
Send evidence, materials, IDs and review requirements to immigration (do not use flat mail, New Zealand is currently very inefficient and not delivered in a timely manner)
Upon receipt of the letter requesting a review, as well as all your additional material, the Immigration Department will conduct a "retrial" and the Immigration Department will ensure that the immigration officer who has reiterated is not the one who refused your first instance.

If the immigration officer in the second instance believes that the rejection at first instance is wrong, the immigration officer will approve your visa directly on the application you submitted at the first instance, but if the "review" immigration officer still determines that the applicant is not eligible for the visa, the original sentence will still be "maintained". In addition, the review, only one chance, if the review is rejected again, the Immigration Department will not accept your "second review" application.

Retrials are usually faster, but if your visa expires while waiting for review, that is, it expires and the Immigration Department will not automatically extend it for you; But as long as they have a record of your failed review in their system, then as long as you leave within a reasonable time, the Immigration Department will not add a "black record" to you, if you want to come to New Zealand, it is not a big deal to apply for a while. view all

What is salmonella contamination in New Zealand food recalls?

Sylvie wrote the post • 0 comments • 29 views • 2021-01-03 11:25 • added this tag no more than 24h

Every year New Zealand's major food, and fresh fruits and vegetables, eggs, meat processing products, there will be several food bacterial contamination problems, encountered this situation, manufacturers or retail channels (such as supermarkets) will be in the public media for the first time to announce the recall news to the community, consumers only need to take the product has been purchased, whether the product is intact or has been eaten part, as long as there is "packaging" and receipts in the supermarket to buy food to get a refund.
 
There are three most common types of bacterial contamination of food: Listeria( Listeria), E. Coli (E. coli), and Salmonella (salmonella) to be described in this article.

Salmonella infection (salmonella) is a common bacterial disease with high concentrations to a certain extent that can affect human intestinal health; Usually, people infected with salmonella have no symptoms. However, people with low immunity or specific diseases develop symptoms such as diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps, and dehydration within 8 to 72 hours of eating food contaminated with salmonella. Most of them recover within a few days without special treatment (commonly known as dirty things are cleaned up).
 
In some cases, diarrhea associated with salmonella infection may be dehydrated to the point where immediate medical attention is required. Life-threatening complications can also occur if the infection spreads beyond the intestines.
 
 
Usually, three or four days of tummy tucking is not over, new Zealand's family doctor will give a body fluid supplement (oral), and if there are more serious symptoms, the family doctor may consider giving antibiotics to the outlet to stop salmonella from intruding on the body. This may be a big difference with the treatment of diarrhoea in the country, in Chinese mainland maybe the doctor will give you infusions, tests, injection of antibiotics, and in New Zealand is not to "pull death" situation, family doctors are step by step treatment measures, and rarely from the beginning to "yellow ligan" "diarrhea stop" and other drugs.

How New Zealand's caretaker government works

Sylvie wrote the post • 0 comments • 22 views • 2021-01-03 11:23 • added this tag no more than 24h

In the run-up to New Zealand's general election, it was necessary to popularize some common knowledge of the continuation of, or alternating, regime change in democracies. Western-style democracies have a good chance of rotating power, and if it is "re-elected", then the ruling party's government will naturally be "even- and not a transfer of power; before the election, either the opposition party came to power, or the results of the vote can not be divided in a short period of time, then in the transition period (the transition of work, or do not know what the future ruling party), there must always be a government to continue to exercise basic duties, this is the "caretaker government" caretaker government. The caretaker government is usually sustained by the previous "old government", with no changes to the main posts, and the "caretaker" model of government is limited to maintaining the temporary normal functioning of the New Zealand government, including dealing with the day-to-day affairs of the country in accordance with the Constitution and legal provisions, as well as speaking out for the upcoming general elections. Once a new government is formed, the mission of the caretaker cabinet ends.
 
That's why governments that take office before New Zealand's general election often delay making big decisions, new policies or decisions with long-term implications. Of course, there are emergencies (such as foreign elections, or natural disasters that have not happened in a millennium), or the idea of "digging holes" for the next government, as well as the fact that there are some strange and big policies ahead of the election.
 
The caretaker government, also known as the transitional government, or "the caretaker cabinet" or the "transitional cabinet".
 
The "current" Government would operate under the caretaker convention prior to the general elections, a situation that continued until the new Government was sworn in. After the elections, the current Minister will continue to perform his existing duties until a new Minister is appointed or reappointed. Ministers who are not elected to Parliament may continue to serve as caretaker ministers, but must leave within 28 days of the date of the vote.
 
There are two main scenarios for caretaker government:
 
1. It is not clear who will form the next government
 
The day-to-day operations of the Government and the day-to-day management of the State sector and other institutions continue as usual, with decision-making and the identification of specific policies usually made prior to the start of the caretaker period.
 
If possible, delay decisions on major issues, new or existing policy changes, and issues with long-term implications. If it is not possible to postpone, you should seek a short-term solution. If a short-term solution remains unecontiable, a decision should be taken in consultation with the other parties, mainly the opposition parties.
 
2. It has been made clear which party will form the new government, but the successor party has not yet taken office
 
The current Government will continue to serve as a minister in a caretaker manner until the minister is formally appointed. The outgoing Government should not take any new policy measures and must respond to any proposals for major constitutional, economic or other issues of the incoming New Government without deliberate delay. view all

What about overstaying in New Zealand?

Sylvie wrote the post • 0 comments • 29 views • 2021-01-03 11:21 • added this tag no more than 24h

If New Zealand's visa expires and the visa holder remains in New Zealand, there will be an "expected stay", commonly known as "black". There are a number of reasons why a visa may be overstated, such as illness, accident, system failure, a global outbreak, or a personal subjective reason for wanting to stay in New Zealand." Unlike the United States, New Zealand has immigration police and great powers; New Zealand has no practice of actively arresting black immigrants, and according to government data, there are only about 10,000 "black" immigrants in New Zealand, not too many. We do not say "black is not black" reason, to see if there is really overdue detention, how to do?

If your visa has expired, it means that you are now entering the country illegally (which is referred to in immigration law as having "illegal status" or "illegal" entry). Once your status is illegal, you are usually not entitled to a new visa and you may have to leave New Zealand. However, New Zealand's immigration laws and immigration protection courts do offer some options for overdue:

Under section 61 of the Immigration Act, you can apply for a visa as a special case
You can appeal to the Immigration and Protection Tribunal on humanitarian grounds
Apply for a visa under section 61 of the New Zealand Immigration Act
If your visa has expired and you are now entering New Zealand illegally, one option is to apply for a visa under the special circumstances of section 61 of the Immigration Act. Usually this is a last-case scenario; it is mainly used in cases where you have tried all other means to obtain a visa without success. Use section 61, provided that you are in fact in good condition to stay in New Zealand, but only because of some very special circumstances "delayed" the application.

In these cases, Immigration New Zealand has "absolute discretion", which means there are few restrictions on the way they can be made, and you will not have the right to appeal if the Immigration Department refuses to consider your particular circumstances. Legally, Immigration New Zealand doesn't even have to consider your application... In practice, though, they will consider all applications at least to some extent.

The Immigration Act allows the Migration Board to grant all types of visas under section 61. Upon obtaining a visa under this section, you have the same immigration status as any other person who has obtained that particular type of visa.

Under section 61 of the Immigration Act, immigration New Zealand will focus on:

Your immigration history - for example, whether you have entered New Zealand illegally before
Your current situation - including why you need to stay in New Zealand, how long you have been in the country illegally, why you do not have a current visa, the efforts made to obtain a visa and whether you are in an illegal state is beyond your control
Your physical health and character, and even your personality
In addition, Immigration New Zealand will take into account:

Is it possible to enter New Zealand
Have you built a strong family relationship here?
Whether there is a security risk to forcibly deport or remain in the territory
Applicants will have a more robust case if:

You can provide Immigration New Zealand with details of your current situation and why you applied for a visa in exceptional circumstances, and
There is strong evidence that you contributed to New Zealand and
You have not attempted to stay illegally in New Zealand for a long time
To obtain a Section 61 visa, you don't have to show exceptional or humanitarian circumstances, but your situation usually needs to be different;

Applications on humanitarian grounds
Although immigration authorities can legally deport you to New Zealand if you are in New Zealand illegally, you can appeal on humanitarian grounds. The appeal is resolved by the Immigration and Protection Tribunal, a similar court body independent of Immigration New Zealand.

If Immigration New Zealand decides to deport you, you have six weeks (42 days) to appeal. Please note that these 42 days start when your identity becomes illegal (for example, the date your visa expires). However, if Immigration New Zealand has already rejected your visa application once, these 42 days are counted from the day the Immigration Department rejects you, even if the applicant's existing visa expired before Immigration New Zealand rejected you (e.g., the visa expired on 1 February, your application to the Immigration Department for a visa change or condition change was denied, and the Immigration Department gave "no approval" on 1 March, with 42 days to appeal from 1 March). view all
If New Zealand's visa expires and the visa holder remains in New Zealand, there will be an "expected stay", commonly known as "black". There are a number of reasons why a visa may be overstated, such as illness, accident, system failure, a global outbreak, or a personal subjective reason for wanting to stay in New Zealand." Unlike the United States, New Zealand has immigration police and great powers; New Zealand has no practice of actively arresting black immigrants, and according to government data, there are only about 10,000 "black" immigrants in New Zealand, not too many. We do not say "black is not black" reason, to see if there is really overdue detention, how to do?

If your visa has expired, it means that you are now entering the country illegally (which is referred to in immigration law as having "illegal status" or "illegal" entry). Once your status is illegal, you are usually not entitled to a new visa and you may have to leave New Zealand. However, New Zealand's immigration laws and immigration protection courts do offer some options for overdue:

Under section 61 of the Immigration Act, you can apply for a visa as a special case
You can appeal to the Immigration and Protection Tribunal on humanitarian grounds
Apply for a visa under section 61 of the New Zealand Immigration Act
If your visa has expired and you are now entering New Zealand illegally, one option is to apply for a visa under the special circumstances of section 61 of the Immigration Act. Usually this is a last-case scenario; it is mainly used in cases where you have tried all other means to obtain a visa without success. Use section 61, provided that you are in fact in good condition to stay in New Zealand, but only because of some very special circumstances "delayed" the application.

In these cases, Immigration New Zealand has "absolute discretion", which means there are few restrictions on the way they can be made, and you will not have the right to appeal if the Immigration Department refuses to consider your particular circumstances. Legally, Immigration New Zealand doesn't even have to consider your application... In practice, though, they will consider all applications at least to some extent.

The Immigration Act allows the Migration Board to grant all types of visas under section 61. Upon obtaining a visa under this section, you have the same immigration status as any other person who has obtained that particular type of visa.

Under section 61 of the Immigration Act, immigration New Zealand will focus on:

Your immigration history - for example, whether you have entered New Zealand illegally before
Your current situation - including why you need to stay in New Zealand, how long you have been in the country illegally, why you do not have a current visa, the efforts made to obtain a visa and whether you are in an illegal state is beyond your control
Your physical health and character, and even your personality
In addition, Immigration New Zealand will take into account:

Is it possible to enter New Zealand
Have you built a strong family relationship here?
Whether there is a security risk to forcibly deport or remain in the territory
Applicants will have a more robust case if:

You can provide Immigration New Zealand with details of your current situation and why you applied for a visa in exceptional circumstances, and
There is strong evidence that you contributed to New Zealand and
You have not attempted to stay illegally in New Zealand for a long time
To obtain a Section 61 visa, you don't have to show exceptional or humanitarian circumstances, but your situation usually needs to be different;

Is it reasonable for small and medium-sized businesses in New Zealand to charge credit card surcharges?

Elisa wrote the post • 0 comments • 27 views • 2020-12-29 16:19 • added this tag no more than 24h

As the outbreak has severely affected the operation of small and medium-sized retail enterprises in New Zealand, more and more enterprises in both open source and thringing have made a heavy impact, looking forward to surviving the cold winter. Recently, the station director received several readers' e-mail inquiries, and the station director also found that some merchants who did not charge credit card surcharges, have started to charge additional fees for customers who swipe credit cards;

According to the New Zealand Consumer Council and the relevant laws, as long as the merchant has an obligation to inform in advance, and clearly state the amount of fees, whether it is to swipe a bank card, or swipe a credit card, or use Chinese commonly used Alipay WeChat UnionPay to pay, merchants charge surcharge behavior is reasonable.

In general, using a credit card to swipe a credit card on a credit card machine, the additional rate for small and medium-sized merchants is reasonable between 2.0% and 3.0%. When using credit cards online, credit card surcharges are more likely to be between 3.5% and 4.0% due to the higher transaction risk involved and the various payment gateway fees involved.

In fact, merchants are not willing to pass this money on to consumers, but small and medium-sized merchants in the payment channel access are at a disadvantage, can not get "excellent" prices;

As for New Zealand retail giants such as Countdown, Pak'n Save, New World, Bunnings Warehouse, because they are too bargaining power in bank credit card payments, their own credit card rates are far lower than between small and medium-sized businesses;

Merchants charge consumer credit card surcharges in several forms:

Add the handling fee manually to your bill and enter the amount that contains the handling fee on the swipe machine (more commonly)
Charge the original amount of the bill before asking the customer to swipe the second card as a percentage to charge a surcharge (less commonly)
Some of the newer swipe machines will automatically determine whether the customer is using a bank card or a credit card, and if it is a credit card, the amount entered by the cashier will automatically be superimposed on the surcharge (requires hardware support) (the swipe channel will have an additional monthly fee of about 10 yuan)
Can merchants refuse to allow consumers to use credit cards? Yes, merchants have the right to refuse. It's not illegal for many Chinese restaurants to have a red X on their Credit button.

It is illegal for merchants to charge a surcharge on a credit card without telling the customer what the surcharge is, or failing to tell the exact percentage of the surcharge. If they encounter a merchant who does not inform the merchant of the handling fee, the consumer may go to the small arbitration court to sue the merchant for a refund and compensate for the loss. view all
