Canterbury Business Recovery Trust Fund welcomed

The New Zealand Law Society has welcomed today’s announcement of the Canterbury Business Recovery Trust Fund.

The Fund will give financial assistance to Canterbury businesses to help them recover from damage and loss, and restore operations. This will include distribution of funds to support access to legal and accounting services.

The Law Society has worked with the Canterbury Business Recovery Group, the New Zealand Institute of Chartered Accountants and government agencies to assist with implementation of the initiative.

Deputy General Manager, Law Reform, Bronwyn Jones said Canterbury businesses which had been affected by the earthquake would be able to access funds to receive legal advice for related issues..

“Businesses will be able to obtain funding which enables them to go to their lawyers for advice,” she said. “The Law Society will be giving details of the scheme to all Canterbury lawyers, along with information on how they can help their clients access the funding.”
