I need an accountant to help plan a tax strategy for a New Zealand business that does about $1 million per year in profit.
I’m looking for someone who has experience and understands New Zealand tax laws, as well as the different business entities that exist in New Zealand and how to best leverage them:
- Regular Companies
My client generates income through working as a consultant for an international marketing business. As he is a consultant, he has very high profit margins with all the business costs being absorbed by the marketing firm he works for.
My client is a New Zealand citizen, but he is not currently a New Zealand resident (but is considering becoming one to leverage lower tax rates offered in New Zealand).
We are looking to identify the best possible setup to minimise tax in New Zealand, while maintaining a 100% legal and transparent business practice.
The expected deliveries for this job are:
- spreadsheet showing exact breakdown of income and tax requirements in New Zealand for the proposed business structure
- detailed explanation and examples for what can be written off as a business expenditure
- whether it makes sense to leverage a New Zealand trust, or simply use a NZ company
Prior to starting the job, I will provide more details over a skype or phone call to ensure that the exact situation is understood.
If you’re interested in this job, please give me your background and explain your knowledge of New Zealand tax law.
