Xero tax guide.

We’ve worked with Kiwi accounting software company Xero, which has you covered when it comes to explaining goods and services tax, also known as GST.

It’s important to get GST right so you pay the correct amount of tax – you don’t want to underpay, or overpay, the Inland Revenue.

 The Xero guide covers:

  • What is GST?
  • Registering for GST
  • Calculating GST and issuing tax invoices
  • Claiming back GST
  • Working out your GST refund or payment
  • Understanding GST returns and due dates.

Inland Revenue.

Inland Revenue Te Tari Taake (also known as ‘the IRD’) is responsible for collecting taxes.

Inland Revenue’s website has a raft of GST guides, seminars and advice available on their website – as well as helpful contacts.
