If you need to file an Annual imputation return - IR4J and an income tax return, use the Companies income tax return - IR4. This combines both returns.

Gather your information

You will need the company’s:

  • opening balance at the start of the tax year (1 April)
  • credits
  • debits.

Go to your return, and follow the prompts

  • Select your income types.
  • Enter the required information.
  • Complete any additional forms that apply to your situation.

What happens next

We’ll use your return to update your running balance for your imputation credit account.

It will be updated with the latest return’s income tax payments, transfers in, income tax disbursements and transfers out.

The running balance determines which income tax disbursement limitation rules will apply. 

If you file an imputation return with a credit or nil closing balance we will not post a transaction to your account.

Any imputation liabilities will be managed through your company’s income tax account.

You can also file your IR4J on paper.

Download and fill in the Annual imputation return - IR4J.

Make a copy for your records and post the form to:

Inland Revenue
PO Box 39090
Wellington Mail Centre
Lower Hutt 5045

You can also file returns for previous years.
