Tax Treatment of the Home Office 2019


The existence of a home office is very popular in New Zealand. If structured correctly, a legitimate tax savings can be established.

A number of tax issues and opportunities exist. These include:

  •  Tax free payments to employees
  •  The ability to claim a deduction
  •  What costs qualify?
  •  How the Tax Act quantifies the tax-free payment/deduction
  •  The new square metre rate for 2019
  •  Does a home office eliminate the need to pay FBT on a car driven home for work purposes?
  •  GST treatment
  •  International tax – does an office create a permanent establishment /branch in New Zealand?
  •  Does a home office impact the tax treatment of the sale of the home (for example, Brightline)?
