People who are not New Zealand tax residents (non-residents) are liable for New Zealand tax only on their New Zealand-sourced income. Note This guide deals with tax residence rules. These are different from the normal New Zealand immigration residency rules. We have used the words resident and non-resident in this guide for New Zealand tax purposes only.

5 4 NEW ZEALAND TAX RESIDENCE Tax residence rules for individuals Who is a New Zealand tax resident? You re a New Zealand tax resident if: you ve been in New Zealand for more than 183 days in any 12-month period and haven t become a non-resident see page 7, or you have a permanent place of abode in New Zealand see below, or you re away from New Zealand in the service of the New Zealand government. The 183-day rule If you ve been in New Zealand for more than 183 days in any 12-month period, you re considered to be a New Zealand tax resident from the first of the 183 days. The 183 days don t have to be consecutive. For example, if you come to New Zealand for 10 days in April and then return for 20 days in September of the same year, it will be counted as 30 days. If you re in New Zealand for part of a day, it s counted as being a whole day. This means that the days you arrive or depart are treated as days present in New Zealand. If you ve ever been resident in New Zealand under the 183-day rule you remain resident until you become a nonresident see page 7. A permanent place of abode in New Zealand The Income Tax Act 2007 says that a person, other than a company, who has a permanent place of abode in New Zealand is a New Zealand tax resident. To have a permanent place of abode in New Zealand there must be somewhere in New Zealand you could live (ie, a house or other dwelling). If there is somewhere in New Zealand you could live, all of your ties and links with New Zealand need to be considered.
6 5 If you have strong ties to New Zealand it s likely that you have a permanent place of abode in New Zealand. The permanent place of abode test overrides any rules about the number of days you re out of New Zealand. So you ll still be tax resident in New Zealand as long as you have a permanent place of abode here, even if you re gone for more than 325 days. If there s somewhere in New Zealand you could live, we need to decide whether it s your permanent place of abode. To do this, we look at all of your circumstances, including the following: Do you have a permanent place of abode in New Zealand? Circumstance Look at Presence in New Zealand Accommodation Family and social ties Economic ties Employment or business how much time you spend in New Zealand, and whether you re here continuously or from time to time how you ve previously used the accomodation you have in New Zealand, and your connection with it, ie, whether you own it, lease it or control it where your family live (especially immediate family) and if you belong to any New Zealand clubs, associations or organisations if you have bank accounts, credit cards, investments, life insurance or superannuation funds here if you run a business here, or if you re employed here, if you have (or may have) employment to return to, the terms of any employment contract Personal property if you have vehicles, clothing, furniture and other property or possessions kept here
7 6 NEW ZEALAND TAX RESIDENCE Intentions whether you intend to come back to New Zealand to live and if you do, when Benefits, pensions and other payments whether you receive any welfare benefits, pensions or other payments from New Zealand agencies or organisations. This list is a guide only you ll need to consider your overall situation when working out whether you re a New Zealand tax resident. Please note that even if you maintain ties (or even a physical home) in other countries you can still be a New Zealand tax resident. As long as you have a permanent place of abode in New Zealand you ll always be a resident. Government service If you re sent away from New Zealand in the service of the government in any capacity, you re considered to be a tax resident of New Zealand and liable for New Zealand tax on your worldwide income. The length of your absence and whether you have a permanent place of abode in New Zealand doesn t matter. This rule doesn t apply to a spouse, partner or children who may be accompanying you. The normal tax residency rules still apply to them.
8 7 Double tax agreements (DTAs) You may be a tax resident in both New Zealand and another country. This means that you re resident in two countries under the tax laws of each of those countries. If both countries tax their residents on worldwide income you could be taxed twice on the same income. Double tax agreements have been negotiated between New Zealand and many other countries to determine what taxing rights each country has. Go to to look at the latest list of countries that have DTAs with New Zealand. Becoming a non-resident Remember, if you have a permanent place of abode in New Zealand you ll be a resident for tax purposes. However, if the ties and links described on pages 4 6 suggest you don t have a permanent place of abode here, you can become a non-resident under the 325-day rule. The 325-day rule You become a non-resident for tax purposes if: you don t have a permanent place of abode in New Zealand, and you re away from New Zealand for more than 325 days in any 12-month period. The 325 days do not have to be consecutive. If you re here for only part of a day it s counted as a whole day.
9 8 NEW ZEALAND TAX RESIDENCE Paying tax as a resident Your worldwide income is taxed If you re a New Zealand tax resident you re taxed on your worldwide income. You must state your income from all sources, including that from overseas, in an Individual tax return (IR 3). You re normally allowed a tax credit for any tax paid overseas so you ll need to be able to produce records which show the overseas tax you ve paid. Note We calculate tax on any overseas income in accordance with New Zealand tax laws. Our tax laws may be different from the laws of other countries. The New Zealand tax year is from 1 April to 31 March of the following year. Unless you get consent from us to use a non-standard balance date you may need to apportion your overseas income to fit the New Zealand tax year. The year you become a tax resident Any person, individual or business required to pay tax in New Zealand will need to apply for an IRD number. Some contractors and entertainers don t require IRD numbers see pages 16 and 17. If you haven t had a personal New Zealand IRD number before, you can apply for one by filling in an IRD number application individual (IR 595) form. When applying for a personal IRD number you ll have to go to an Inland Revenue appointed verifier with two specified identification documents. Just follow the instructions on the front of the application form. To apply for an IRD number for a business, trust or other non-individual entity, fill in an IRD number application nonindividual (IR 596) form. If you ve had a New Zealand IRD number before, call us on to check it s still valid. Once you have your IRD number, please have it with you whenever you call us.
10 9 Temporary tax exemption on foreign income Most types of individual income derived from overseas may be temporarily exempt from tax in New Zealand. This temporary tax exemption is available to people who: have qualified as a tax resident in New Zealand on or after 1 April 2006, and are new migrants or returning New Zealanders, who haven t been resident for tax purposes in New Zealand for at least 10 years before their arrival in New Zealand. The temporary tax exemption for foreign income starts on the first day that you are a tax resident here. It ends 48 months after the month you qualify as a tax resident in New Zealand. This means that the period between your arrival in New Zealand and the date you qualify as a tax resident is also treated as an exempt period. Example Sarah was in New Zealand from March She then moved here on 22 April 2013, and qualified as a tax resident on 16 October She met the criteria for her foreign income to be temporarily exempt from tax in New Zealand see page 11. Her exemption applies from 10 March 2013 until 31 October Qualifying for the exemption To be eligible for a temporary tax exemption on foreign income you must: have qualified as a tax resident in New Zealand on or after 1 April 2006, and not have been a New Zealand tax resident at any time in the past 10 years before the date you qualified again as a tax resident in New Zealand see page 5, and not have been eligible for this tax exemption before (including if you were eligible but chose to waive the exemption), and not be receiving Working for Families Tax Credits (your spouse or partner must not be receiving them either).
11 10 NEW ZEALAND TAX RESIDENCE This exemption is a one-off, you can t extend your tax exemption or renew it after its expiry date. There are some types of foreign income that don t qualify for a temporary tax exemption. The exemption and Working for Families Tax Credits (WfFTC) You can t receive WfFTC while being tax exempt from foreign income. If you re eligible for the temporary tax exemption on foreign income and you (or your spouse or partner) are also eligible for WfFTC, you need to decide which option is the best for your situation. If you decide to waive the temporary tax exemption so you can claim WfFTC, you ll need to show in your Individual tax return (IR 3) all the foreign income you received from the date of your arrival in New Zealand. Go to to: see if you re eligible work out how much you may be entitled to register for WfFTC. For further information about WfFTC you can call us within New Zealand on or on if you re calling from overseas. How to claim the exemption The tax exemption is automatically granted if you re eligible. If you qualify for the exemption, you re not required to tell us about foreign income you receive (except for foreign income that doesn t qualify for the temporary tax exemption) for the period of your exemption.
12 11 Foreign income exempt from tax in New Zealand Types of foreign income which are temporarily exempt from tax in New Zealand: controlled foreign company (CFC) income that is attributed under New Zealand s CFC rules foreign investment fund (FIF) income that is attributed under New Zealand s FIF rules (including foreign superannuation) non-resident withholding tax (eg, on foreign mortgages) income arising from the exercise of foreign employee share options accrual income (from foreign financial arrangements) income from foreign trusts rental income derived offshore foreign dividends foreign interest royalties derived offshore income from employment performed overseas before coming to New Zealand, such as bonus payments gains on the sale of property derived offshore (held on revenue account) offshore business income (that is not related to the performance of services). Foreign income taxed in New Zealand The foreign income that will continue to be taxed in New Zealand is: employment income from overseas employment performed while living in New Zealand, and business income relating to services performed offshore. If you receive any non-exempt types of foreign income from the date of your arrival back in New Zealand, you ll need to show this income in your Individual tax return (IR 3), even if you qualify for a temporary tax exemption on other types of foreign income.
13 12 NEW ZEALAND TAX RESIDENCE After the exemption has ended When your temporary tax exemption ends, you need to include all your foreign income (received since your exemption ended) in your IR 3, along with your New Zealand income. You re required to file an IR 3 after the end of your exemption and every tax year after that, as long as you have foreign income (regardless of whether or not you told us of your foreign income when you arrived in New Zealand). New Zealand s tax year runs from 1 April to 31 March. If your exemption ends at any time in a tax year other than on the standard balance day of 31 March, you ll need to apportion your foreign income received for that year in your IR 3. Example Sam qualified as a tax resident in New Zealand on 10 September 2007 and met the criteria for his foreign income to be temporarily exempt from tax in New Zealand from 10 September 2007 until 30 September Sam s exemption ends in the middle of a standard New Zealand tax year and he will continue to receive foreign income after his exemption ends (on 30 September 2011). On his tax return for the year ending 31 March 2012 (the tax year that his exemption ended in), Sam has to show the foreign income he received from 1 October 2011 to 31 March For more information Go to for more about: the temporary tax exemption on foreign income filing an Individual tax return (IR 3). You can also call us within New Zealand on or on if you re calling from overseas.
14 13 The year you cease to be a tax resident If you re leaving New Zealand, or have left New Zealand, you can use the information on our website or speak with your tax agent to determine if you re a New Zealand tax resident. Or, if you would like our view, you can fill in a New Zealand tax residence questionnaire (IR 886). We ll then advise you about your tax residence status and if you have any future New Zealand tax responsibilities. If you ll no longer be a tax resident and won t be receiving income from New Zealand from the date you leave, you may need to complete an Individual tax return (IR 3) up to the date of your departure. You can file your IR 3 before the end of the tax year. Include any income you received from all sources up to the date you leave New Zealand. Send your IR 3 to the appropriate Inland Revenue address below before you leave.

Please give your bank or other financial institution your overseas address and tell them you re a non-resident for tax purposes to ensure the correct amount of NRWT is deducted. There s a limited exception to paying NRWT on interest. If the payer of your interest pays approved issuer levy, NRWT isn t deducted from your interest. For further information please read our NRWT (Non-resident withholding tax) payer s guide (IR 291) and Approved issuer levy (IR 395) guide.

The Recognised Seasonal Employer (RSE) scheme facilitates the temporary entry of additional workers from overseas to plant, maintain, harvest and pack crops for a limited period. The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment administers the RSE scheme. If you re a recognised seasonal worker under the RSE scheme you re a non-resident for New Zealand tax purposes but will have to pay New Zealand tax on your New Zealand income. Your employer will deduct tax, including ACC levies, at a flat PAYE rate. You won t have to pay any further tax or have a refund to claim, and in most cases, you won t have to file an end-of-year tax return.

21 20 NEW ZEALAND TAX RESIDENCE Tax residence rules for non-individuals There are different tax residence rules for non-individual taxpayers. Companies A company is a resident in New Zealand if it meets any one of the following criteria: It is incorporated in New Zealand. A company which is incorporated under the New Zealand Companies Act 1993 is resident in New Zealand. Its directors exercise control in New Zealand. Those acting in their capacity as directors control the company here, whether decision-making by directors is confined to New Zealand or not. It has its centre of management in New Zealand. This is the place from where the company as a whole is managed. To determine where a company s centre of management is, acts of management at various levels may be relevant. It has its head office in New Zealand. The head office of a company is the office from which the business of the company is conducted. The focus of this test is the physical place where the administration and management of the overall business is directed from and carried out. A company often satisfies more than one, or even all of these tests. Such a company is clearly resident in New Zealand. However, a company need only satisfy one of the four tests to be resident. Trusts The rules of residence for trusts are set out in our Trusts and estates income tax rules (IR 288) guide.
