Webinar: GST and remote services - The Netflix tax


Businesses around the world who provide cross-border services are grappling with a new style of tax – “Netflix Tax”.

Effective from 1 October 2016, non-residents that supply “remote services” (e.g. on-line services and insurance) to New Zealand customers will be required to register and account for New Zealand GST.

We will also introduce the Australian Netflix tax – it applies to New Zealand businesses supplying digital products remote services to Australian customers.
