GST in New Zealand 2018 Edition is the second annual updated edition of this significant work designed to provide readers with in-depth commentary and practical advice and application of the law of GST in New Zealand. With the guidance of General Editors late Judge Paul Barber and Professor John Prebble, the authors have written a book that is an invaluable source of information for:

  1. specialist and non specialist lawyers, accountants and tax professionals whose practices require them to deal with this complex and constantly changing area of the law; and
  2. for law, accounting and business students and their teachers who need an authoritative teaching and learning resource.

It will also be most helpful to persons interested in any aspect of GST.

The 2018 Edition has been thoroughly reviewed and updated and includes new commentary on:

  • Dealing with land transactions that fall within the compulsory zero-rating regime. Includes new statements, public rulings, and a special report from Inland Revenue.
  • Changes to the rules regarding zero-rated services supplied in connection with land.
  • Recent cases dealing with Commissioner of Inland Revenue’s cancellations of taxpayers’ GST registrations.
  • New electronic GST filing requirements.
  • Removal of the incremental late payment penalty from certain new GST assessments.
  • Early information on changes to business tax rules, reported in an Inland Revenue special report.
  • The change making it compulsory for Inland Revenue to provide GST refunds by direct credit to a taxpayer’s identified account.

  • How to determine whether the different elements contained in a transaction should be treated as a single composite supply or multiple separate supplies.
  • Businesses’ ability to deduct GST associated with the costs of raising capital.

  • The recent GST cases of Concepts 124 Ltd v Commissioner of Inland RevenueCullen v Commissioner of Inland RevenueYL NZ Investment Ltd v Ling HC Auckland and Great North Motor Co Ltd (in rec) v Commissioner of Inland Revenue, among others.

The text starts with a practical overview of key features of the GST system, has a full commentary on GST law, and then reviews the GST issues businesspeople and their professional advisers often encounter. A full copy of the Goods and Services Tax Act 1985 is included for handy reference.

The split between the analytical and practical sections of the book means it is easy to find the level of information you require, fast. The book has a dual view in that it gives understanding to a novice reader, and a deeper understanding of GST for more experienced readers.

The comprehensive commentary on current GST law is necessarily detailed, but reviews key concepts with reference to everyday scenarios.

The practical guides are written with businesspeople and their advisers in mind. These include guides for managing general GST compliance obligations, and information about the GST treatment of specific transactions.
