Taxmail - IRD focuses on multinationals 

October 2013 Issue

New Zealand is a stakeholder in the international tax system. It has an interest in ensuring multinationals that operate here contribute to the tax take while making sure that the tax settings do not alter their investment decisions.

Two recent Inland Revenue (IRD) documents – IRD’s Multinational Enterprises Compliance Guide and an IRD Policy report on the Taxation of multinationals – highlight the increasing tax focus on multinational businesses.
