Te kaituku i whakaaetia Approved issuer

Back

An approved issuer is someone who pays interest at a zero rate of non-resident withholding tax (NRWT).

Instead of deducting NRWT they pay a levy on the securities they register with us.

Tax summary

Approved issuers need to pay a levy of 2% on the interest of each registered security. They can claim a deduction of the 2% in their New Zealand income tax return if the interest that has been paid is tax deductible.
