and trusted leaders, are physically fit and mentally prepared to meet the rigours of military operations. We‟ve underpinned this

From its initial focus of revenue gathering as the fledgling colony established itself in the world, international trade facilitation

Zealanders may live in safety while actively participating in the global community. The events of September 11, 2001 have
extended Customs' traditional focus on inward and transiting goods and passengers to include export goods. We aim to protect
the community from potential risks arising from international trade and travel, while facilitating the legitimate movement of
people and goods across the border.

Accounting and Finance
In an increasingly competitive market, savvy financial and accounting skills - gained through relevant papers from a business or
commerce degree - are likely to become more critical to the success of any serious business. How NZICA membership will give
you the edge and help keep you at the top of the game: It is recognised by business and government; it is recognised globally; it
gives you total credibility (NZICA has delivered the goods for over 100 years); it can significantly increase your market value,
here and overseas; it can shortcut you to the shortlist for job applications; it labels you as a true professional and high achiever -
valuable assurance for any employer or business partner.
