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.

2020 International Questionnaire

We will be posting letters requesting completion of the questionnaire for the 2020 income tax year in early March 2021. Generally, these will be sent to foreign-owned groups with turnovers above NZ$30 million.

We send the requests to the active postal address for income tax. You can make sure it's up to date in myIR.

Update my address for each tax type
