Content Description:

The tax world is rapidly changing, and it is no different in New Zealand. Keeping up to date with recent and proposed legislative tax changes, adopting digital technologies and having a constructive relationship with Inland Revenue are critical to operating a successful business. Our workshops will ensure your tax knowledge is fit for purpose so you can add value to your organisation.

This workshop will use a mix of presentations and practical case studies to cover the following*:

  • Tax Knowledge Sharing – essential updates.
  • Corporate income tax compliance refresher including advanced corporate income tax case studies.
  • Changes resulting from the Tax Working Group recommendations including capital gains tax and what it could mean for your NZ business and investments.
  • Assessing your eligibility and how to claim your R&D tax credit for 2019.
  • PAYE issues including new reporting requirements and keeping compliant with a mobile workforce.
  • Challenges for a multinational business including the practical impacts of BEPs changes and the ATO ruling on corporate residency.
  • Risks and opportunities presented by the new Customs Act.
  • GST updates including imported low value goods and digital services.
  • Tax functions of the future.
  • Fringe Benefits - the risks associated with providing rewards.

*The above topics are, based on the workshops we ran during 2018. The actual content will be finalised closer to the time to ensure the workshops are up to date and relevant to you in the rapidly changing tax world.
