Your income tax return is due 7 July, 2019

Preparing for your return

You’ll need to ensure that your business accounts for the 2019 tax year have been settled before you file your return. We can provide a guide to preparing for your income tax return, or contact us today for more information.

Filing your return

When you file your return, you will need to have the following information handy

  • DLN (Document Lodgement Number). Inland Revenue will send you a 14-digit number by email and/or post. This is needed to lodge your return online
  • Company IRD number
  • BIC (Business Industry Classification) code. You can find this at https://www.businessdescription.co.nz/
  • Company bank account number

Remember to sign, date and file your income tax return receipt with the rest of your tax records.

As a business, it is important to file your tax return correctly and on-time. Talk to us today about how we can help you.
