IRD reassessments and voluntary disclosures

Inland Revenue allows taxpayers to use a tax pool to satisfy tax payable (Income Tax, GST, FBT, RWT, PAYE) from audits and voluntary disclosures within certain criteria. Through the pool, a taxpayer can purchase historical tax payments of unpaid tax from prior tax periods – saving more than 30% over the cost of use-of-money interest incurred if settled directly with IRD.

You can settle reassessments of any tax type. When you know the result of a reassessment you can choose to buy back dated tax to cover the increased reassessment liability and reduce your interest costs. You have up to 60 days from the date the reassessment is issued to settle any reassessment using tax pooling.

  • Save more than 30% of the use-of-money interest cost compared to settling the liability directly with IRD
  • Can be a helpful cost or risk mitigation strategy as you work through the audit process

Tax pooling assists businesses with variable cash flow to get access and save interest on underpaid provisional tax, end-of-year tax and from reassessments of tax. 

Interest rates are lower than borrowing from institutions and don't require the high level of security that many do. It's all about making your business run smoother.

How does tax pooling work?

Why Finance Tax?

Lower Borrowing Cost

In most cases, the interest rate charged by  TPS is significantly lower than that charged under business banking facilities.

Free Up Cash Flow

Provides you with an alternative means of financing.

Settle Tax On Your Terms

Is your cashflow lumpy or seasonal? TPS lets you settle your tax when you want. If you don’t quite get the timing right, roll the finance – only paying interest to the next maturity.

Sell Over-Financed Amounts

If you finance more than you need then we sell the excess and transfer a cash interest return to you without needing to settle the excess principal amount.

Public Trust protects your interests by holding all payments and tax deposits and authorising all transfers.
