Ngā kaupapa atawhai Charities


Charities are organisations that carry out charitable activities or exist only for charitable purposes. They can be incorporated or not.

Tax summary

Charities will need an IRD number and may need to register for GST and PAYE. Charities must self-assess their tax-exempt status annually.

They can receive tax exemptions if they register with Charities Services. If a charity needs an exemption from resident withholding tax they must apply to us.
