New Zealand

The New Zealand tax rules can be complex, and the obligation is on taxpayers to file a correct tax return. Substantial penalties can apply where incorrect or no returns are lodged.

For New Zealand businesses and the self-employed, it’s a requirement that an income tax return is lodged annually. For businesses, GST and FBT returns may also need to be filed.

Our experienced tax advisors can assist you in preparing and filing your tax return on your behalf, and with the day-to-day challenges associated with efficiently and effectively managing your taxation obligations. This allows you to focus on growing your business and achieving your goals.

For executives and high net worth individuals, taxation is a priority. Due to the high levels of income earned, many tax breaks offered are not available. Effective tax planning can, however, minimise your tax liability. We make it a priority to get to know our clients and their financial affairs to identify the best tax strategies for each individual.
