Know your tax obligations

Recording of webinar held on 27 August 2019.

In this webinar Inland Revenue will walk you through recent tax changes for charities and not-for-profits that carry out some of their purposes overseas. This webinar is the first in a series of three webinars for charities and not-for-profits who carry out some of their purposes overseas. To find out more about the two upcoming webinars visit our events page.

It covers:

  • IRD's new guidance about donee status, including what to do if you apply 25% or more of your funds overseas and how to establish a New Zealand fund
  • How you could be eligible for overseas donee status
  • The tax benefits you can offer if your volunteers include student loan borrowers who work overseas
  • Your obligation to pay income tax if your charity receives business income and your purposes are not limited to New Zealand.

You may wish to familiarise yourself with the guidance Inland Revenue provides on its website for not-for-profit and charitable organisations working overseas(external link).
