Who we are

We collect most of the revenue that government needs to fund its programmes. We also administer a number of social support programmes.

Business transformation

We're changing to make it simpler and faster for New Zealanders to pay their taxes and receive their entitlements.

Research and tax statistics

From time-to-time we undertake research into various aspects of the programmes and services we administer. We also publish tax related statistics each year which are intended to improve transparency and meet the information needs of external users and government departments.
