New Zealand's trade in services with the rest of the world is a key component of the balance of payments.
Statistics New Zealand measures international trade in transportation (including international movement of passengers and freight), travel, and commercial services.
Commercial services include transactions in a wide variety of services, such as information technology, business, consulting, and technical services.
Statistics NZ runs a quarterly survey of all significant enterprises. The results of this are published in the quarterly Balance of Payments and International Investment Position information release. Detailed results from the survey, by partner country, are available in the 'Data' section below.
In addition, the Census of International Trade in Services and Royalties collects information from all enterprises that trade commercial services internationally. The most recent census was for the year ended June 2011.
