In accordance with Schedule 6 of the Public Service Act 2020, we are required to report on situations where the Commissioner has delegated any of the Commissioner powers outside the Public Service.

Westpac

The Commissioner has delegated powers under the Treasury Delegations to Westpac's Corporate and Institutional Banking Unit to enable it to effectively manage the movement of payments received in Te Tari Taake Inland Revenue's Australian WBC Account (Payments) to our Westpac New Zealand Account.

This delegation allows Westpac to transfer the payments out of Te Tari Taake Inland Revenue's WBC Australia Account to our Westpac New Zealand AUD Account, apply the foreign exchange rate to the AUD amount and then transfer the NZD amount to our Westpac New Zealand Account.

This delegation has been operating as intended in line with the contractual arrangements with Westpac.

Callaghan Innovation

Callaghan Innovation and Te Tari Taake Inland Revenue act in partnership to determine entitlement to the R&D Tax Incentive (RDTI).

To fully enable discussions with customers, agents and experts in relation to applications for the RDTI, the Commissioner has delegated powers to share information under section 18 of the Tax Administration Act 1994 to staff in Callaghan Innovation who consider RDTI applications.

This delegation is limited to information that relates to RDTI applications and has been working as intended.

Madison Recruitment Ltd

In June 2022, Te Tari Taake Inland Revenue engaged Madison Recruitment Ltd to provide contingent labour to help with the introduction of the Cost of Living Payment and to provide additional support with other specific tasks due to the ongoing impact of COVID-19.

The last of the Madison Personnel completed their engagement with us on 16 December 2022. 

To enable the Madison Personnel to fully undertake the engagement, some of the Commissioner’s powers were delegated to those Madison Personnel. 

This delegation operated as intended in line with the contractual arrangements with Madison Recruitment.
