Buying or selling a home? You’ll now need to provide your IRD number as part of the transaction process. The change will allow IRD to know who’s flipping owner-occupier homes on a regular basis, and better enforce the existing law that ensures people pay tax on the profit. The move won’t impact the rules around who’s required to pay tax on investment property though.

Our office is closed for the festive season and will reopen on the 17th January. If you need anything urgent, please call our reception line 04 472 7465 and leave a message.
