Application for status ruling (IR712)

Use this form if there has been legislative amendment to the taxation laws applying in a private or product ruling you have applied for and obtained.

If you have previously obtained a private or product binding ruling and you want to apply to have a status ruling as to whether amendment to the taxation laws has changed the way it applies in that private or product ruling.

You will need:

  • Applicant's details and IRD number
  • Identify the legislation amending or repealing taxation laws on which you have previously obtained a binding ruling.
  • Provide a draft status ruling, and a copy of the private or product ruling to which it applies.


Inland Revenue charges an initial application fee of $322.00 and then $161.00 per hour for private rulings, product rulings and status rulings.
