Are you taking on a new client?
Has IRD announced a risk review or audit/investigation on your client?
Do you have a client with unknown related entity and/or land transactions?
At an early stage of providing tax advice, our standard practice is to run a detailed search of New Zealand based entity structures, land and other public information and collate it into clear and logical reports on structure and land transactions.
We frequently identify information of which our legal and accounting colleagues were unaware.
From time to time we find missing information such as land transactions, incorrect shareholding etc that is critical to clients’ tax position.
We have found land held in a different entity to what professional records show, clients who hold assets using variants on their name (swapping first and last names, splitting or joining up multi syllable names, changing letters – g for q, ij for y etc.). Our search processes identify these and you can be sure so do IRD’s.
We are pleased to offer these Reports to fellow professionals as a standalone service. All reports will generally identify related party structures or land transactions such as individual to company or trust etc. For examples and pricing see https://owenstax.com/what-we-do/partner-support/
