IR4 Questions 1 to 8 Company details

Questions 1 to 8

Fill in Questions 1 to 8 only if the correct information is not printed on the return.

Question 2—Company name

If the company has changed its name since the last time a return was filed, please attach a copy of the new certificate of incorporation with the name change details or call Inland Revenue on 0800 377 774 so they can update their records.

Question 4—Postal address

If you have a new postal address, write the details at Question 4. If your new address is a PO Box number, please show your box lobby if you have one. If you are unsure of your box lobby please contact New Zealand Post.

Leave this address panel blank if the company uses its agent’s postal address. The agent will let Inland Revenue know of any change of address when they update their client list.

Question 6—Business industry classification (BIC) code

If you’re involved in a business or a trading activity, please write the BIC code only in Box 6. You don’t need to give a description.

Inland Revenue are required to supply the Accident Compensation Corporation (ACC) with a code for your business or trading activity, for levy classification and calculation.

To work out your main business or trading activity and its code, go to or call ACC on 0508 426 837.

It’s important that you choose the code which most accurately reflects your main business or trading activity.

Question 7—Phone number

The IRD ask for your daytime phone number so they can contact you if they have any questions about your return.

Question 8—Bank account number

The fastest and safest way to get any refund is to have it direct credited to your New Zealand bank account or other deposit account, for example, a building society account. If your bank account number isn’t preprinted on the return form, please include it at Question 8.

If your suffix has only two digits, enter them in the first two squares of the suffix box.
