International tax covers a wide range of tax services. Structure your business operations from a tax perspective to ensure you comply with local rules of the countries in which you operate. Tax authorities around the world are undergoing the biggest changes they ever have, becoming increasingly vigilant and bettering communications between countries.
We offer compliance and reporting services. As businesses expand operations into new markets the complexity of managing tax risks and complying with reporting requirements multiplies.
Strategic tax reviews begin with understanding the drivers of their effective tax rate (ETR), assess risks, and better align tax management with future business model developments.
We can assist with international transactions including mergers, acquisitions or disposals, due diligence, structuring, modelling, financing, post-merger integration and reporting.
Non-Resident withholding tax (NRWT)
Non-resident withholding tax (NRWT) is a tax withheld from New Zealand payments of interest, dividends and royalties to non-residents (foreign investors). These kinds of payments are called non-resident passive income (NRPI). If you’re a foreign investor who gets non-resident passive income, then your tax will be paid to Inland Revenue by your New Zealand based payer.
