Register for GST as a group

Back

Only a group representative can register a GST group.

Gather your information

If you are registering a company-only group you will need the names and IRD numbers of the companies holding the common interest.

If you are registering a mixed group you will need the name and IRD number of the controlling entity or entities.

You will also need the names and IRD numbers of all other members of the group.

Any GST-registered members must use the same filing frequency and accounting basis as the group.

Log in to myIR

Select your GST account

Select 'I want to ... More'

Select 'Register as a GST group'

Provide the information requested.

The last step is to submit your registration. We'll send you confirmation that we've received your registration.

What happens next

We will:

  • process your request within 10 working days
  • contact you if we need further information.

The group's GST account will show in myIR once we have confirmed its registration.

My responsibilities

As the group representative you:

  • are treated as carrying out all the taxable activities of the group
  • are responsible for filing the group's GST returns and paying any GST due to us
  • can ask us to add or remove group members, change the representative or cancel the group registration
  • are our contact for all matters relating to the group's GST activity.

You can register the group by completing the 'Goods and services tax application for group registration' form - IR374.
