When and how to cancel your GST registration

When you must cancel your GST registration and how to do so

To cancel your GST registration you can:

  • advise us when you file your final return through myIR Secure Online Services
  • email us using the secure mail service in myIR
  • call us on 0800 377 776, or
  • send us a letter with your final return.

When you cancel your GST registration, you'll need to tell us about any assets you sell or retain for personal use and an adjustment will need to be made for them in box 9 of your GST return.
