A company's records at the New Zealand Companies Office do not fulfil the requirements of a fully compliant share register. For example, New Zealand companies must maintain a share register that records the number of shares each shareholder owns and any restrictions or limitations on the transfer of shares and where to find the details (share class). Share classes are not recorded on the New Zealand Companies Office.
A company's private share register will need to contain more information than what is required to be shown in the New Zealand Companies Office official records. For example, companies with extensive shareholdings may only show their top twenty shareholders on the New Zealand Companies Office, but their share register must contain an alphabetical list of all of the shareholders' names with their residential addresses or registered office (if they're a company).
