IRD Number Application

Type of application*

 

Inland Revenue Department (IRD) Number

IRD Number New Zealand icon

If you plan to work or earn money in New Zealand, you will need an Inland Revenue Department (IRD) number. Without an IRD number your tax will be deducted at a higher rate.

You also need an IRD number if you need to file a New Zealand tax return or apply for a New Zealand tax refund. We have provided IRD numbers for some people who don’t currently live in New Zealand but who receive annual rental income from there.

Once you receive your IRD number you will keep this same number throughout your lifetime except in case of bankruptcy when a new IRD is issued. Regardless of how many times you leave or return to New Zealand you will always keep the same IRD number.

Taxback.com apply for a New Zealand IRD on your behalf.

We also provide tax refunds from New Zealand

    I'm happy with the overall process and the communication with the account manager. I'm not happy that instead asking simple for IBAN and BIC unnecessary information are collected.

    Pretty seamless and hassle free -- especially when I am an overseas customer. Also, someone reached out to me via Taxback.com regarding the new work-holiday visa tax change & wanted to use my "case" as a case study in court. I was unhappy to learn that I was the first generation of the WH visa to not get much tax $$ back from Oz... I was happy to help and happy that taxback cared and took action on my behalf.

    Communication. Follow-up and calls from officers of the organisation and prompt responses to mixed calls.
