We would encourage you all to check. Any winnings are put into further bonds and no attempt is made to find the owners of these bonds who may have moved or died.

If you don’t bank with ANZ there is even less chance you can be found so the bonds stay in limbo.

Visit your ANZ branch with your ID and it can be sorted for you even if you don’t have the paper certificates.

New IRD changes

Hi All
It is apparent with these changes made by Inland Revenue that more taxpayers are seeing the value in having a good Accountant/Tax Agent on their side. Here is what we had to say last week...

Much of what is written in the media glosses over the very real practicality of getting compliance issues working correctly and this could take some time to be resolved.

Capital Gains Tax Proposals - What you need to know.

There are a number of situations that may justify roll-over relief, … View moreRoll-over relief is the mechanism that allows a realisation-based tax to accommodate deferral of taxation on transactions or events that are realisations. Realisations will trigger a requirement to calculate taxable gain or loss. There are a number of situations that may justify roll-over relief, and these are considered in more detail below.

Roll-over relief does not mean that the gain or loss is never taxed. It means that taxation of the gain or loss is deferred until there is a later realisation event which is not itself subject to roll-over relief. For example, suppose A buys a holiday home for $500,000. When A dies, she leaves the holiday home, worth $700,000, to her children. The children sell it five years later for $950,000.

1. If the transfer of the holiday home to A's children is treated as a realisation event and not eligible for roll-over relief:
- A will have $200,000 of taxable income at the time of her death, which will be returned by her executor/administrator.
A's children will have taxable income of $250,000 when they sell the holiday home.

2. If the transfer is eligible for roll over relief:
- A will be treated as having no taxable income from the holiday home on her death;
A's children will have taxable income of $450,000, at the time of selling the holiday home.

Reading the Tax Working Group Interim report makes it clear that there are large wide-sweeping changes to our Tax system ahead. Some may affect more people than originally intended, either way it is overly complex. Watch this space....

New Zealand tax residents are taxed on the money they make in New Zealand and in other countries – even if

With recent changes it's more important than ever to get our professional advice with regard to your tax situation...

From 29 March 2018 the bright-line test for residential property has been extended from 2 years to 5 years. The extended bright-line test only applies to properties for which an agreement to purchase the property was entered into on or after 29 March 2018. If an agreement to purchase a property was entered into before that date, the 2-year bright-line test will still apply.

The 5-year bright-line test applies in the same way as the 2-year bright-line test.
