IR4 Question 34 Foreign rights

If you calculated CFC or FIF income at Question 18 you may be required to complete an additional disclosure form for that investment.

For all interests of 10% or more in a foreign company, the additional disclosure is required.

For other investments, the requirement for an additional disclosure depends on the company you are preparing the Companies income tax return (IR4) for.

  • If the company isn’t widely held or a PIE, additional disclosure isn’t required if the investments are in countries New Zealand holds a double tax agreement with (as at 31 March 2019) and the fair dividend rate or comparative value has been used.

  • If the company is widely held or a PIE you are required to file an additional disclosure.
