Thinking about expanding your New Zealand business into an overseas market? Or are you considering New Zealand as a new place to locate your international operations? Does your business already have some presence in New Zealand but you are unsure of your tax obligations? Have you concerns regarding Transfer Pricing?

New Zealand has once again been voted the second most competitive OECD jurisdiction by the Tax Foundations International Tax Competiveness index. This places New Zealand ahead of trading partners Australia, the United Kingdom and the United States in having the best place to have and grow a business in. But this by no means that the tax rules aren’t equally as complex as other jurisdictions.
