Taxation in New Zealand

Taxation in New Zealand is managed by the Inland Revenue Department (IRD), a government agency responsible for collecting taxes and administering the tax system. The main taxes collected in New Zealand are income tax, goods and services tax (GST), company tax, and fringe benefit tax.

Income tax is the largest source of revenue for the government and is levied on individuals, businesses, and trusts. The income tax rate for individuals is progressive, with higher earners paying a higher rate of tax. GST is a value-added tax that is applied to most goods and services at a rate of 15%. Company tax is levied on businesses at a rate of 28%. Fringe benefit tax is a tax on certain benefits provided to employees, such as cars, accommodation, and entertainment.

The government also collects taxes on property, investments, and other sources of income. In addition, there are a number of taxes that are specific to certain industries, such as the Accommodation Tax, which is levied on accommodation providers.

The government also collects taxes from international visitors through the International Visitor Levy and the International Visitor Conservation and Tourism Levy. These levies are charged on international visitors who stay in New Zealand for more than one month. Taxation in New Zealand is generally considered to be fair and equitable. The government has a range of tax credits and deductions available to help reduce the amount of tax paid by individuals and businesses.
