Unique insurance especially for franchises
To arrange efficient, effective insurance for your franchise, call Paul Kuhn on 04 802 0168 or email firstname.lastname@example.org Exclusively through FANZ, franchisors and franchisees can now get business insurance specifically designed to suit their needs. This insurance policy offers stock and asset cover pre-set to $1 million (Experience shows only 20% of businesses have sufficient cover at claim time for the real risks they face). Members also benefit from low excess amounts on claims. And when it comes to business interruption, cover doesn’t start until trading actually stops an invaluable benefit, especially when repairs are delayed. It is also the only insurance policy in New Zealand where FANZ members can get protection against “loss of attraction”, i.e. the effect on turnover if an anchor tenant closes after suffering an insured loss, or when other parts of the shopping area suffer insured damage that keeps customers away like partial quake damage.
Protection for franchisor and franchisee
Our business insurance solution for members provides protection to both the franchisor and franchisee. Obviously, any event that affects the franchisee also has a knock-on effect on the franchisor. So by protecting the franchisee, the franchisor also gains protection. However, this insurance goes even further: it offers compensation to the franchisor following an insured disruption to the franchisee’s business. In other words, the franchisor will still receive that franchisee’s fee even if an event prevents the franchisee from trading.
Support from our insurance partner, Crombie Lockwood
This insurance package is unique in New Zealand and is offered to FANZ members through our insurance partner, Crombie Lockwood. Founded in Napier in 1978, Crombie Lockwood has grown to be the largest insurance broker in New Zealand, with 26 offices nationwide. As our partner, Crombie Lockwood works for you, not for the insurance companies, to make certain you get the best results at claim time.

HR Assured & enableHR
Navigating New Zealand’s ever evolving employment law landscape is a daunting task for most businesses, big or small. For a franchise business the stakes are even higher. If even one franchisee breaches employment standards, your whole network risks damage to your reputation and your bottom line.
Our HR solutions offer innovative HR technology and Workplace Relations services, designed to protect your workplace from noncompliance for a low-monthly fee. You can choose to adopt our cloud-based HRIS to enhance your existing HR structures, or you can choose to fully outsource your HR and partner with our team of Workplace Relations Experts.
What are the benefits of working with enableHR or HR Assured?
New Zealand’s franchise sector is a significant contributor to the New Zealand economy and is the business structure of choice for many business owners.
In recent years, we have seen an increase in clients seeking advice in respect of Franchise as they look for new ways to plan for succession of their existing business or want to engage in business through structured arrangements where risk is sought to be systematically minimised.
Providing advice to the Franchise sector requires franchise-specific experience, insight and specific knowledge. That’s why BDO has a team to provide our franchise advisory service. We can provide a broad range of advisory services whilst also covering the whole of a franchise’s accounting needs in a cost-effective way, with access to relevant software for maximum business efficiency.
In addition, our team is uniquely placed with experience in non-franchise businesses to complement our Franchise offering. This means we complement our knowledge with experience from organisations in similar or comparative industries to give you fresh insight into your own strategy.
Specific franchise services include:
