Extending the tax digital border

Monday 10:50am - 11:20am, IITP (IITP Room 2)

Many small businesses will agree that managing tax compliance can be a time-consuming and costly exercise.

As part of its major business transformation, Inland Revenue is working with a range of third parties to fit tax compliance into a business's broader administration functions. The goal is to make tax simpler and more seamless for businesses.

This commitment is seeing the tax eco-system, once solely administered by Inland Revenue, being opened up to software developers and other parties. This is allowing developers to do what they do best - developing new innovative services for New Zealanders.

Jonathan Pickard will discuss Inland Revenue’s partnership with private sector software developers, and highlight challenges as well as opportunities.
