Tax expertise

Disputes with the Inland Revenue Department can be stressful.

Whether you are facing criminal or civil liability with the IRD, it is important to take action by seeking legal advice as soon as possible. When you do, being transparent about y­­our tax affairs is key.

Our tax experts are highly passionate and skilled in this area of the law. They also have a wide range of tax experience, such as being an integral part of a Big 4 accounting firm and even previously working as an IRD prosecutor. Not only does this mean that we can advise you on matters such as your current tax position and obligations, we are conscious of what IRD’s next steps might be.

Our experience includes helping clients with:

  • Responding to letters of demand or civil proceedings served by the IRD
  • Overdue income tax, GST and PAYE
  • Voluntary disclosures
  • Student loan debt
  • Defending criminal tax prosecutions (tax evasion).

As crypto is becoming an increasing global phenomenon, we have also developed a strong interest in the tax treatment of cryptocurrency / crypto assets.

If you need help with arranging your tax affairs or facing some pressure from the IRD, please contact our tax specialists.
