Inland Revenue needs your opinion Hawkes Bay

Inland Revenue is asking small business owners in the Hawkes Bay for their ideas which will help companies ‘savetime’ when doing their tax affairs.

Customers are being asked to rank six concepts which could then be pursued by Inland Revenue to save businesses time in the future. The ideas include being able to file your GST and PAYE returns via your smartphone and email alerts reminding you when your tax is over-due.

“We want dealing with Inland Revenue to be easy and not time consuming. We want New Zealanders to get involved and have an opportunity to have their say in how to improve our tax system,” says Deputy Commissioner of Information, Intelligence and Communications Mike Cunnington.

Hawkes Bay residents can find out more about the six ‘savetime’ ideas from billboards across the region, and through their local radio stations and newspapers.

Customers are presented with two ideas at a time and can vote for their favourite by texting the code word to 5805 for free. Alternatively, they can go to ird.govt.nz/savetime where they can rank all six and suggest their own.

“This is another step in improving the way Inland Revenue does business more efficiently and to ensure New Zealanders continue to save time when doing their tax affairs,” says Mr Cunnington.
