Tax Matters

Every member needs to provide their own NZ IRD number and most members should also supply tax rates. Providing you give us the right information you won’t need to include your Whai Rawa income in any tax returns to Inland Revenue; we’ll make sure the correct amount is deducted from your Te Rūnanga contributions and your earnings.

If you are not a NZ tax resident you will get the most benefit by having a NZ IRD number. If you don’t have have one, join Whai Rawa anyway, and we can help you get one afterwards!
