• Are you confident you are calculating your GST correctly?
• Do you find the management of GST complicated and time consuming?
• Are you submitting your returns on time?

Goods and services tax (GST) is a 15% tax added to the price of most goods and services in New Zealand, including most imported goods and some imported services. If you carry out a taxable activity and your turnover (gross income) for the last 12 months was $60,000 or more, or if GST is included in your prices, you must register for GST. If you don’t have a turnover of under $60,000 you don’t have too but it may be advantageous to do so in certain circumstances.
