The legislation gives the Registrar the power to grant exemptions in relation to the following statutory obligations:
- the calling or holding of meetings (including procedures at meetings)
- the method or form of voting
- the giving or receiving of information
- the making or keeping of new records
- the rights to inspect or access information or records
- the method or form of dispute resolution (excluding rights of access to courts)
- the method or form of disciplinary procedures
- auditing, assurance, or financial reporting or review requirements.
No exemption can dilute the number or need for a quorum.
If the Registrar grants an exemption, it could apply to an individual entity or to a class of entities (for example, an exemption may apply to all companies). We will publish all exemptions here on our website.
This provision came into force on 3 November 2021 and ends on 30 April 2022 (unless it is extended). We will publish details of any extension here.
These temporary provisions also apply to some Māori governance entities.
