rPPSR Changes - Introduction

Monday, 19 February 2018 by John Rickard

NEWSFLASH: PPSR Go Live Date delayed until 1st October 2018.

For more information see the PPSR website.

The existing PPSR in New Zealand is being replaced with a new system, the rPPSR (Replacement PPSR), and is due to go live on 2nd July 2018.

This move is being driven by the Ministry of Business Innovation and Enterprise (MBIE) and is designed to replace the reliable but aging platform that, whilst world leading when it was released in 2002, has increased risks and costs associated with ageing technology.

Here, at Intersoft Systems, we have been working towards this change for the last 12 months, and are committed to developing a state of the art interface to the rPPSR.

In this first Blog article, we will introduce some of the changes made to the rPPSR.


Whilst the underlying legal requirements and therefore how the PPSR works is little changed, the underlying technology platform has been significantly upgraded.

Having said that some changes to the PPSR have been made:

The PPSR G2B interface will change to a REST based set of web services or APIs.

In addition the PPSR website will been updated.

finPOWER Connect

finPOWER Connect is currently being upgraded to support the new rPPSR - and given its been 15 years since it was originally written it was time to revamp several parts of this interface.

In addition, there are new functions the rPPSR can provide, and so some of these are also exploited in finPOWER Connect. For example, there is now a comprehensive Secured Party Group Report to compare your Financing Statements to those recorded in the PPSR.

Because of the major changes involved in the rPPSR, it will NOT be supported in the older finPOWER product.

This is the first in a series of blogs to give you a heads up on what is changing within finPOWER Connect.
