The complete matrix elements for $e^+e^-\rightarrow$$b\bar bW^\pm H^\mp$and $e^+e^-\rightarrow b\bar bH^+H^-$ are computed at tree-level within the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model. Rates of interest to phenomenological analyses at the Next Linear Collider are given. In particular, we analyse: (i) $t\bar t$ pair production followed by the top decays into $b\bar bW^\pm H^\mp$ and $b\bar b H^+H^-$final states; (ii) H+H- signals in which $H^\pm\rightarrow h W^{\pm} \rightarrow b\bar b W^{\pm}$ and $H^\pm\rightarrow tb\rightarrow
b\bar b W^\pm$. Top and Higgs finite width effects are included as well as all those due to the irreducible backgrounds.
