Contractor Payments – Navigating the Tax Minefield

Description

When to deduct withholding taxes

The tax treatment of contractor payments is a minefield of obligations, potential exposure to past taxes and resulting shortfall penalties. These significant tax and commercial risks are often borne by the person making the payment.

Eliminate the tax risks of paying contractors, directors, labour hire firms and others e.g. film crew.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Schedular payments e.g. commissions, maintenance work, film work
  • Project payments to non-resident contractors for services and property located in NZ.
  • Payments to directors (e.g. resident and non-resident directors)
  • Applying for certificates of exemption and special rate certificates.

When pricing up projects large and small it is essential for all parties to understand the cash-flow and after-tax cost of withholding taxes.
