As mentioned recently, we have noticed an increase in Inland Revenue queries, reviews and audits. As your accountant (and in many instances your Inland Revenue Agent) we are required to prepare replies and communicate with the Inland Revenue on your behalf. In some cases when there are complex environments, unusual circumstances, multiple years or multiple companies and trusts, costs to liaise with the Inland Revenue can add up pretty quickly.
In order to help mitigate these costs, we have recently sent out information about Audit Shield Insurance.

It’s incredible to believe that we are already racing towards the end of 2017. The weather is starting to warm up and promises that summer is nearing. It’s a great reminder of why many of us choose to live in Hawke’s Bay and reap the benefits of a warm climate, longer days and an idyllic lifestyle.
Congratulations to Mary-Ellen, Patrick and their team for winning the 2017 Liquorland Franchisee of the Year award. Not only did their Onekawa Liquorland store take out first place, their Waipukurau Wines and Spirits store was also named as one of the top 20 finalists. A bold achievement when there are 112 nationwide stores eligible to compete for the award.
The Inland Revenue have recently launched a campaign to target tradespeople who are not declaring their full income for tax purposes. In order to prevent penalties and prosecution, if you're in business, you need to maintain accurate records, ensure that you are charging and declaring GST (if GST registered), register all employees and declare all of your income when filing your tax return.
It is expected that any new Government will bring with it a flurry of policy changes, but Jacinda Ardern has set out a particularly ambitious 100-day plan which will almost certainly include significant changes to New Zealand’s tax system that will affect the lives and pockets of all New Zealanders.
