Tax Residence Update 2024 - 30 May 2024 (On Demand)


Personal tax residence, corporate tax residence, and the application of DTAs

Determining whether a person is New Zealand tax resident (both under domestic law and for the purpose of any applicable double tax agreement) is critical for a number of reasons, including:

  • Determining whether (and when) the person is subject to New Zealand income tax on their worldwide income;
  • Determining whether the person is entitled to relief from double taxation under a double tax agreement;
  • Determining whether the person is eligible to be treated as a “transitional resident” and, if so, from when.

This webinar examines Inland Revenue’s guidance on tax residency, and the impact of recent cases on tax residency.

In addition, the webinar will explain how to apply double tax agreements for tax residency purposes, transitional residency, and corporate tax residency.
