With some of this support you need to ensure you have a myIR log-in so that you can apply for the support. If you don’t have a myIR log-in please register for one here:

If you are unable to pay your tax due to Covid-19 please find further information from IRD here.

Or log-in to your MyIR log-in at www.ird.govt.nz and underneath the words 'I Want to...' you will see 'Request an Installment arrangement' Click on this and complete the details you are asked.
Please note it is important to keep on filing your tax returns on-time as if you do need an arrangement to pay off your tax you won’t be able to set-up an arrangement if you have overdue tax returns.


Here is a link to give you guidance and information about what your business can and can’t do during Alert Level 4.
