For New Zealand residents, it is a requirement that an income tax return is lodged annually unless you are an individual and your salary or wages has PAYE deducted, and you do not have other gross income exceeding $200.00.
The New Zealand tax rules can be complex and the obligation is on taxpayers to file a correct tax return. Substantial penalties apply where incorrect or no returns are lodged. Income tax returns are due by 7 July unless the tax payer is attached to a tax agents listing, in which case extended time to file a tax return is available.
For businesses, GST and FBT returns may also need to be filed.
