Budget 2018: Ensuring fairness across the tax system

Posted on Jun 7, 2018 by admin

This year’s Budget focused on the Government’s commitment to creating a fairer tax system for all New Zealanders.

New initiatives aimed at cracking down on tax dodgers are expected to generate an extra $726.3 million in revenue. The additional revenue is set to assist the Government in addressing significant under-resourcing of critical public services.

Inland Revenue will receive $31.3 million of operating spending over the next four years, and $23.5 million to ensure outstanding company tax returns are filed. This is expected to recover approximately $183.3 million.

Initiatives designed to reduce distortion in the tax system are also set to provide additional revenue. Speculators and investors can no longer offset tax losses from residential properties against other income.

Offshore suppliers of low-value goods will be required to register for, collect and return GST. This is estimated to provide $218 million in new revenue over the next four years, and is expected to increase each year as online shopping grows.

We are comfortable with the working relationship and ease with which they are able to communicate with us. As we as the normal accountancy service, Garry advised us on Xero accounting and taught us to uses the program in plain simple English. We can say only that we have had nothing but exceptional service and the advise we have received has been correct and perfect for our business, which is why i would not hesitate to recommend their services.
