7 April 2020 Terminal Tax is coming up fast! - This is a reminder that you may have a 7 April 2020 Terminal Tax payment due.
If you have 2019 Terminal Tax payable you should have received an email or snail mail IRD reminder letter from us by now.
If you haven't received a reminder it could be because you don't have an amount payable, haven't filed your return or you may have paid the Terminal Tax early.
Please contact us as soon as possible if you think you may have a payment due or are unsure because missing your Terminal Tax payment will result in penalties and interest from the IRD.
If cashflow is tight, we have some options available, through Tax Traders, our tax pooling partner, we can defer your terminal tax payment until the 18th of June 2020, from rates as low as 4.65% or we can assist you to set up an IRD instalment arrangement. Please contact us before the due date if you would like us to assist you.
