About the course...

Australian tax training

The workshops will be fun and interactive, to help you understand your responsibilities and requirements in meeting your New Zealand tax obligations. All key taxes will be covered, including income tax, GST, FBT and payroll obligations. Tax issues specific to New Zealand companies with overseas shareholders or subsidiaries will be covered including transfer pricing, financing and employee mobility.

The tax world is rapidly changing, and it is no different in New Zealand. Keeping up to date with recent and proposed legislative tax changes, adopting digital technologies and having a constructive relationship with Inland Revenue are critical to operating a successful business. 

Recent and impending changes that will be covered include:
  • How to claim the new R&D tax credit (n.b. the resulting IP doesn’t have to stay in NZ so this can be a great opportunity for non-residents);
  • New reporting requirements for multinationals operating in NZ; 
  • Tax challenges for NZ companies with Australian directors; 
  • Numerous changes to employee reimbursements; 
  • Outcomes from the Tax Working Group review; and
  • Many others!

The workshops will use a mix of presentations and practical case studies to ensure you get all the updates you need. An advanced corporate tax case study and a series of shorter, technical questions on key tax matters impacting multinationals will ensure your tax knowledge is fit for purpose so you can manage risks and add value to your organisation.
