This paper summarises current tax issues in New Zealand, with a focus on aspects of the policy response of the Government, Inland Revenue and Treasury to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in New Zealand.
As readers will be well aware, the pandemic is far from over, and the economic impact for New Zealand in the current year, and in future years, is uncertain. What is known is that the direct and indirect effects of COVID-19 in terms of business disruption and job losses has been and continues with each lockdown to be enormous, and that the level of Government spending to cope with the immediate impact of the pandemic and to position the economy for recovery, are unprecedented. The need for a timely and effective response from key stakeholders, often in near-real-time, has also been unprecedented.
This paper considers some of the detail of the policy response, and also considers the way in which Inland Revenue, Chartered Accountants Australia & New Zealand (CA ANZ) and the Law Society (as well as other key stakeholders, including Treasury, the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment, and the Corporate Taxpayer Group) addressed the acute need to respond to the crisis. The paper also touches on how Inland Revenue, CA ANZ and the Law Society developed new ways of working to respond, and what that might mean in terms of the future – in terms of consultation, representation, and the generic tax policy process (GTPP). An earlier version of this paper was presented at the 2020 NZLS CLE Tax Conference.
