New Australia-New Zealand Double Tax Agreement

The new Australia-New Zealand Double Tax Agreement signed off two days ago has important and beneficial implications for the corporate sector as it lowers or removes withholding taxes on:

  • Dividends
  • Interest
  • Royalties, and
  • Lease payments in respect of commercial personal property located in New Zealand.

The new DTA replaces the 1995 DTA and will come into effect at 1 April after it is ratified by both countries.

Chapman Tripp will send out a detailed analysis of the new DTA within the next few days.  In the meantime, more information is available here.
