Reminder-New Zealand GST

As of 1 October 2016, businesses established outside of New Zealand who remotely supply certain electronic services to non-business customers located in New Zealand, will have a legal obligation to register for, and charge, New Zealand GST to their customers.

The rules apply to a wide range of services including internet downloads and apps, and businesses must ensure that processes are in place to ensure full compliance with the new rules.

Businesses affected by these rules must submit periodic GST returns to the New Zealand tax authorities.
