The foreign super tax proposals clarify a misunderstood area of tax law which has mainly, inadvertently, not been complied with. They also offer an opportunity to remedy past non-compliance.

However, the proposed amnesty will only apply in certain circumstances. In others, there could be double tax if IRD pursues past non-compliance and the new rules apply to tax future withdrawals.
