IRD renewed focus on GST compliance

10 July 2023

Now is a good time for clients to address overdue GST.

Over the past few years the level of overdue GST returns and payments has steadily grown. During this time the majority of IRD effort has been spent on supporting business through COVID-19, and more recently adverse events.

As the IRD transitions back into  more regular activity, it states that it will be focused on ensuring customers meet their GST and other business obligations.

If you or your client needs help to get back on track, please contact us. There are a range of options we can use, depending on individual circumstances.

Encouraging those clients who you know are struggling to contact us means we can likely avoid the IRD taking firmer action.

If clients do not proactively work to resolve outstanding GST issues, their financial situation may worsen and our ability to help them get back on track will become more limited.

We know economic times for many are still very challenging
