New Zealand retains 22nd ranking in ease of paying taxes

New Zealand has retained its 22nd ranking out of 189 economies in its ease of paying taxes, according to Paying Taxes 2016, now in its tenth edition. The unique study by PwC and the World Bank Group is the only piece of research which measures the ease of paying taxes by assessing time required for a case study company to: prepare, file and pay its taxes, the number of taxes that it has to pay, the method of that payment and the total tax liability as a percentage of its commercial profits.

Beyond Digital: What's happening in New Zealand's entertainment and media industry?

Digital growth in New Zealand's entertainment and media industry continues to offset a flattening growth rate on traditional entertainment and media content, according to PwC's Global entertainment and media outlook 2015-2019. Spending on digital content is forecast to continue to grow at 10 per cent year-on-year to 2019, while spending on non-digital content will increase by just 0.13 per cent year-on-year, an improvement on last year's forecasts which predicted an annual decline in non-digital content by an average half a per cent to 2018.
