IRD Number Application

Type of application*


Inland Revenue Department (IRD) Number

IRD Number New Zealand icon

If you plan to work or earn money in New Zealand, you will need an Inland Revenue Department (IRD) number. Without an IRD number your tax will be deducted at a higher rate.

You also need an IRD number if you need to file a New Zealand tax return or apply for a New Zealand tax refund. We have provided IRD numbers for some people who don’t currently live in New Zealand but who receive annual rental income from there.

Once you receive your IRD number you will keep this same number throughout your lifetime except in case of bankruptcy when a new IRD is issued. Regardless of how many times you leave or return to New Zealand you will always keep the same IRD number. apply for a New Zealand IRD on your behalf.

We also provide tax refunds from New Zealand

    Easy and very efficient. I went to ask about the status of my refund (Tax and superannuation) on the live chat many times and people were extremely quick, efficient and nice.They were always sending me updateds about everything. Reminding me about forgotten documents, answering to every of my question and quickly replying to my emails. So much patience and help. The process went smoothly.

    Very responsive to my emails and questions. My online tracker login never worked, however, I never needed to use it. Good value for money and happy with the service. I did have a lot of forms to fill out but work it in the end when you get your money back

    My agent, Romulo Albares, was very patient and professional throughout the whole process. I'm not a tax expert and I had already come back to Brazil after living in the US for a year, so getting straight with the IRS was a big concern of mine. On top of getting straight with the IRS, so I don't have problems with the US Government, I got a good tax return money, which is very nice.
