IRD System Upgrade Q & A

As you will be aware the IRD have undergone a significant system upgrade. With this change has come a few hiccups, one being that we need to reconfirm our Agency list to their new system. While we complete this, you may receive a letter (as per example) in the mail stating that PKF Poutsma Lemon (Paihia) Limited has “third party access to your information”. This letter is simply confirming that we are still your Tax Agents and are continuing to work with the IRD on your behalf. You don’t need to do anything but if you are concerned about the letter or any other correspondence you get from the IRD, please contact us immediately.
