IR7 Front page of the return

Questions 1–7

The information on the front page of the return helps Inland Revenue to be sure that any correspondence they send goes to the right place, with the right information.

Fill in Questions 1 to 7 only if the information is not printed on the return or is incorrect.

Question 4

Postal address

If the partnership or LTC has 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’re unsure of your box lobby, please contact New Zealand Post.

Leave this address panel blank if the partnership or LTC uses its agent’s postal address. The agent will let Inland Revenue know any change of address when updating their client list.
