If you calculated controlled foreign company (CFC) or foreign investment fund (FIF) income at Question 17, you may be required to complete an additional disclosure form for that investment. The types of foreign investment that may not require an additional disclosure are investments in countries New Zealand has a double tax agreement with as at 31 March 2019 and have used the comparative value or fair dividend rate method.
Full details of the disclosure requirements are available in the May issue of the Tax Information Bulletin (TIB) each year.
