NRWT (Non-resident withholding tax): NRWT payers
Deducting NRWT (non-resident withholding tax)
If you're paying interest, dividends or royalties to people who aren't New Zealand tax residents, you'll need to deduct NRWT.
You can either complete the:
- Non-resident withholding tax payer registration online, or
- NRWT payer registration (IR380) form and send it to us.
The money that you deduct is paid to Inland Revenue by the 20th of the month following the payment.
At the end of each financial year
At the end of each financial year you must file a NRWT on interest, dividends and royalties reconciliation statement (IR67S), along with a New Zealand NWRT withholding certificate (IR67) by 31 May each year.
You can find out how to complete the IR67S by:
- reading the NWRT reconciliation statement guide (IR67SG), or
- contacting the Non-resident Centre to ask for a copy.
