Total sales and purchases made by Māori authorities in New Zealand
2016 Q2–2021 Q4, NZD millions
Māori authority: The role of Māori authorities and their subsidiaries is to receive, manage, and/or administer assets held in common ownership by Māori. Māori authority leaders are likely to be mindful of the collective relationships and responsibilities to ‘place’, and the health and wellbeing of the collective. Māori authorities include any commercial business that supports the authority’s business and social activities, and sustains or builds a Māori authority’s asset base. Ownership, control criteria, and investment models appear to be characteristics of Māori authorities. Stats NZ identifies a ‘Māori authority’ as having a Māori business flag on the Business Register. This flag denotes:
- business with a collectively managed asset, which uses current Inland Revenue eligibility criteria to be a Māori authority (irrespective of whether the enterprise elects to be a Māori authority for tax purposes)
- commercial business that supports the Māori authority’s business and social activities, and sustains or builds a Māori authority’s asset base
- business that is at least 50 percent owned by a Māori authority.

Limitations of the data
Not all units in our Māori business population can be matched to the data from the various sources used for Tatauranga Umanga Māori. Each dataset has a specific population scope, such as including only economically significant businesses. Different surveys may exclude specific industries, sectors, or size of business from their population. Therefore, the population of relevant Māori businesses may differ between data sources. Additionally, some units may not have been selected for a specific survey, may have missing data, or were not matched to the dataset.
Stats NZ acknowledges that the coverage of the business population for Tatauranga Umanga Māori needs further improvement. Stats NZ is continuing to work with stakeholders to regularly obtain new and updated Māori business population lists. This will help to ensure that the statistics we produce are representative of the Māori business population.

About this dataset
Tatauranga Umanga Māori – Statistics on Māori businesses presents information on one subset of Māori businesses – Māori authorities – that contribute to our country’s economy.
Method of collection/Data provider
This information is sourced from three data collections: Business Financial Data, Business Employment Data, and Overseas Merchandise Trade.
- Business Financial Data Collection is a quarterly collection of business financial data, covering most of New Zealand’s economy, using a combination of survey and tax data.
- Business Employment Data is a quarterly collection using a combination of data from two different Inland Revenue sources: the employer monthly schedule (EMS) and payday filing. Both are associated with PAYE (pay as you earn) tax data.
- Overseas Merchandise Trade statistics provide statistical information on the importing and exporting of merchandise goods between New Zealand and other countries. Merchandise trade includes goods that add to or subtract from the material resources in New Zealand as a result of their movement in or out of the country. Data is obtained from export and import entry documents lodged with the New Zealand Customs Service (NZCS).
