Complex Rural Tax Issues Made Easy

his seminar will guide participants through common and complex rural tax issues across a wide range of topics.

Whether you are a beginner or an expert, the tax issues that arise for clients operating in the rural sector are as varied and complex as any other type of business, if not more so due to the overlay of specific tax rules.




Tax Issues for Companies

Make the right move when dealing with company tax issues

A company has some unique features that distinguish it from the other structures. In this course we will look at some of the income tax rules that apply specifically to companies.

We will also cover the Better Business Tax Consultative Document, including changes to:
•       Provisional tax                    •       Late payment penalties
•       FBT for close companies    •       self-correction of minor errors
•       IRD communicating information to the Companies Office
•       deductions for dual use vehicles and premises
•       Increasing the threshold for annual FBT returns from $500,000 to $1 million
•       Modifying the 63 day rule on employee remuneration

Third party complaint and litigation numbers are increasing against professionals

What defines us is how well we rise after falling. Reports suggest that not only are client complaints increasing in number but claims from third parties (other parties to transactions, beneficiaries, other trustees etc) increased by 5% last year. This tells us that we need to change the way we do business, whether we are employees or business owners.

Learn to manage expectations, and put in place some sound practices and procedures.


The Full Story

As well the introduction of the bright-line rule the course will highlight other recent legislative, case law and Inland Revenue statements that affect the taxation of land disposals including:
  • Legislative definition of when land is acquired
  • Case law that widens what being in a business of erecting buildings entails
  • Inland Revenue’s position on residual land retained following a subdivision
  • Inland Revenue’s position on what amounts to "significant expenditure” and the resulting change on its position on what work of a minor nature entails



This practical three part webinar will cover a range of practical income tax and GST issues facing New Zealand companies where the shareholder/s own and run the business (not including LTCs). It utilises case studies along with a clear analysis of the tax and GST law to illustrate the issues.   It includes a course book and is based on the popular face to face course run at the end of 2015.
