About IR

Inland Revenue is an essential part of the fabric of New Zealand. We collect most of the money that our government needs to provide the social and economic programmes that support and care for the people of this country.

We want to make it simple and fast for people to pay their taxes and receive their entitlements. So, we have spent the last few years aligning all aspects of our organisation to enable this to happen.

We have updated technology and introduced agile and multi-disciplinary teams to create great outcomes for New Zealand.

Policy and Regulatory Stewardship

Policy and Regulatory Stewardship ( PaRS ) is a small, specialised team of policy advisors, primarily based in Wellington.

We are responsible for developing, managing, and communicating tax and social policy using the generic tax policy process (GTPP).

This includes providing tax and social policy advice to ministers, drafting tax bills, and maintaining and negotiating our network of tax treaties with other jurisdictions.

Our advice achieves the results intended because we have worked up options right from the start with those who need to implement them and who will be affected by them.

By being responsive today and shaping tomorrow we take account of the future and ensure that the tax and social policy systems we advise on continue to be fit for purpose.

By broadly influencing the social and economic agenda we contribute to improve the overall outcomes across government.
