Final Provisional Tax & GST Payment - Due 7 May 2020

Difficulty paying tax?
If you're having difficulty paying the upcoming provisional tax or other GST payments, the IRD has said in some cases it can waive interest on late payments if the customers ability to make payment was significantly adversely affected by the COVID-19 outbreak.
We can help you setup a Tax pooling or financing arrangement to defer the full payment to a time in the future that better suits your business cashflow. Tax Pooling is an IRD-approved service offered by our partner, Tax Management NZ. Click here for more information.
Further, the IRD maybe be able to help you set up an installment arrangement. We can help you apply for a write-off due to serious hardship when you know you won't be able to pay the full amount.
IMPORTANT: We need to contact the IRD as soon as practicable to request relief and will also be required to pay the outstanding tax as soon as possible.
