Across the Tasman - Australian tax issues for New Zealanders - 14 August 2018 (On Demand)


A guide to Australian tax law for New Zealand advisers and their clients

Each year, thousands of New Zealanders move back and forth between their country of origin and Australia. No two tax systems are quite so intertwined as Australia and New Zealand so if you have clients who are thinking of coming to Australia, are already in Australia or have spent time in Australia and subsequently returned to New Zealand, the chances are they will have some Australian tax issues.

The purpose of this webinar is to give New Zealand practitioners an overview of the Australian tax system, discuss how it may apply to New Zealanders and then to focus on some of the common risk areas your clients may fall into.

The webinar will cover:

  • Australian residency rules as they apply to New Zealanders, with particular emphasis on the advantages to New Zealanders of Australian temporary residency rules 
  • General overview of Australian income taxes, capital gains tax (CGT) and goods and services tax (GST) 
  • How does Australia tax New Zealand income and capital? 
  • Impact of the Australia/NZ Double Tax Agreement on typical client situations 
  • How new CGT rules for the taxation of the main residence will hit New Zealanders departing Australia 
  • Taxation of New Zealand working holidaymakers in Australia 
  • Overview of tax rules on investment properties for New Zealanders 
  • Taxation of New Zealand employment and business income in Australia 
  • Australian GST obligations for New Zealanders trading over the internet 
  • Distributions from Australian deceased estates to New Zealand beneficiaries 
  • Capital distributions from NZ trusts to Australian resident beneficiaries 
  • Australian taxation of NZ dividends


Participants will gain an understanding of how the Australian tax law can apply to your clients and the common situations they may find themselves in. The knowledge gained can then be taken back to the office to be applied to your present and future clients who find themselves or their families exposed to Australian taxes, either through migration, employment, business or investment.


The webinar provides an introductory and intermediate level of knowledge ideal for the development of staff within tax agent and accounting practices who act for individual clients and small businesses with direct or indirect exposure to Australian tax laws. This could be through migration, marriage, family ties, business or employment links or investment.
