UK Company, Resident in New Zealand

After 20+ years in the UK have we have made a permanent move home to NZ (6 months in each during this tax year).
Our UK Consulting Company will continue to be invoicing UK Clients for another six to eight months, and then will close/become dormant.
NZ considers any Invoice raised by the UK Company to be personal income.
We have done this previously using a NZ Company to invoice (empty) the UK Company, resulting in NZ taxes only of GST at 15% and Income Tax at 33%.
As the UK Company is to close, had has cash-assets, anyone know a more efficient way to operate and close the UK Company? (Perhaps appoint a UK Director, and/or majority shareholder to operate for the next six months and then wind-up the company??)
