Our International Questionnaire is primarily designed to collect key information about financing/debt and transfer pricing issues relating to foreign-owned businesses in New Zealand.

This information will:

  • enhance our risk assessment processes. In conjunction with the Basic Compliance Package and Compliance Management processes already in place, this will also enable us to provide greater certainty and further tailor our interventions to facilitate compliance by multinationals in New Zealand
  • help us monitor the impact of the anti-BEPS measures.

2019 International Questionnaire

Letters dated 5 March 2020 requesting completion of the questionnaire for the 2019 income tax year have been posted. Generally, these were sent to foreign-owned groups with turnovers above NZ$30 million.


As in previous years, the questionnaire is concise and low in compliance costs. We expect a response rate of 100% again and thank all participants in advance for helping us achieve this.
