Problems with GST returns

February 9th, 2017 | Posted by Accountants Auckland in Accountant in Auckland - (Comments Off on Problems with GST returns)

Having a few problems trying to file your GST return this month?  You’re not alone.  Inland Revenue released their new GST system this week and in the spirit of upgrades everywhere it appears to actually be a downgrade (well so far anyway)!  I’m not telling you anything you don’t know right but the main issue you may be experiencing is not being authorised for GST in the IRD’s system (there’s no GST tab when you log in).

  1. To fix this, the master account holder (who will normally be the company Director) needs to log into their myIR and give you access (video below).
  2. However, if like so many businesses, your kindly Director has no recollection of the master details then I’m afraid he or she is going to have to get in that lovely long line and wait patiently for someone on the IRD phone lines to help you through the authorisation process.  Good luck.

Best not leave your GST return to the last minute

So often accounting articles are dull old things forewarning nothing but doom so we wanted to shake things up and really celebrate ‘the joy of business‘ with you this month.

  • One of the best things about our job, as chartered accountants, is being insiders within some pretty amazing businesses.  We love seeing you do well and are thrilled to have one of our clients named in the latest Fast50 business awards and another exhibiting their work in Time Square recently.
  • Confidentiality prohibits us from sharing all your successes but every single one of you deserves major congrats for being among the first, in New Zealand, to start signing tax returns electronically.  It’s hardly surprising because you were also some of the first using Xero, back when we founded Boutique Financial almost ten years ago.

Ten years!  What have we learned in that time (apart from the trauma of updating headshots after so long)?  We’ll leave you with a few light-hearted comments we’ve picked up along the way …
