Te tāke i te moni paraihe Taxing prize money


If you run a sports event or competition and give more than $500 in prize money to a participant, you will need to deduct 20% withholding tax. This applies to all events and competitions, both amateur and professional.

The tax deduction applies to each separate participant, for each separate event they compete in.
