Time to Take a Closer Look at GST


GST is part of everyday life in New Zealand and has been so for almost 30 years. In most cases the GST impact of a transaction is straightforward but in cases where it is not, a lack of understanding of the fundamentals can lead to costly mistakes.

This course provides those dealing with GST on a regular basis, a refresher of the key components of GST. It provides a clear analysis of the relevant e-legislation and will give attendees a review of the rules they need to know when working with GST.

Here is what we cover:
  • What are taxable supplies
  • The difference between taxable, exempt and zero rated supplies
  • The requirements for registration
  • How to determine the value and time of a supply
  • The basics of the GST adjustment rules
  • The requirements of a tax invoice
  • The GST accounting methods and periods
Who benefits from attending these courses?

Anybody who has anything to do with GST. It will be a very good refresher for those regularly working with GST and a good overview for those who have never had time to really study the fundamentals.


Since GST legislation was introduced in 1986 there have been a number of areas where the treatment of a transaction is less than clear. As a result, there are a number of complex GST issues that need to be understood.

This webinar reviews a number of the problem areas that have arisen over recent years and shed some light on the issues. Rather than a technical analysis, the webinar selects and tackles a number of "real life” issues and is case study based.

  • How many property transactions is a taxable activity?
  • Agency and nomination
  • Second hand goods
  • Time of supply in property transactions
  • Court Awards, Damages and Settlements
  • Renting out a holiday home
  • Asset leasing
  • Zero rating of land sales
  • E-Commerce
  • Cancelling GST registration
