Provisional tax means paying your income tax in instalments, not in a lump sum at the end of the year. We’ll ask you to pay provisional tax if last year's tax bill was more than $5,000.
Once your turnover is $60,000 a year or more you need to charge 15% GST on your sales and income and pay it to us. You can claim GST back on your purchases and expenses. Have outstanding GST returns or debt? Don’t paint over the cracks – get your GST sorted now.
If you’re running a construction business and employing tradies you need to keep on top of your employer obligations. This includes making deductions from employees' pay and sending the information to us – otherwise known as payday filing. Deductions can includes PAYE, KiwiSaver, student loan and child support.
Schedular payments are payments made to independent contractors, with withholding tax deducted. The hiring organisation deducts the withholding tax and pays it to us on behalf of the contractor.
