Business Law deals with the creation of new businesses and the issues that arise when they interact with the public, other businesses, the government or other public administration.
Business law covers the legal rules which applies to :
- Commercial law,
- Company law,
- Intellectual property
- Tax law.
Within its particular statute of broad autonomy, New Caledonia has broad powers in those fields of law; therefore, the local congress and government can legislate in these matters, since 2012.
That’s why the legal are not the same in Nouméa and Paris. If you’re an Australian or NZ company and already do business in France, you can’t ask your usual french lawyer to help you. To secure your business in New Caledonia, you will need a local lawyer .The better he understands your needs, the best it’s for your business.
This is particularly true if your dispute relates to taxes and duties, for which New Caledonia defines the rules and the tax rates, for individuals or companies.
