This article looks at the corporate governance issues relating to small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) and unlisted companies in New Zealand and shows how the Companies Act 1993 does not cater well for the SME. It looks at overseas experience and considers optional codes of self regulation and private arrangements which may assist these companies and whether a new legal vehicle is necessary.
