TAX TRADERS
TAX TRADERS WAS FOUNDED TO GIVE TAXPAYERS A FAIRER DEAL.

WHO IS TAX TRADERS?


An Inland Revenue approved intermediary, it is led by one of New Zealand’s leading figures in tax pooling, Josh Taylor. The team is supported by an advisory board that includes former Deputy Commissioner of Inland Revenue Robin Oliver, former Deloitte partner Mike Shaw and prominent New Zealand director and past president of the New Zealand Institute of Chartered Accountants, Keith Smith.

We believe tax pooling should be available to all, because no New Zealand taxpayer should have to pay use-of-money interest or penalties to Inland Revenue. Since we started, we’ve driven the price of tax finance down by 1.5% p.a. What’s more, we’ve led the way in innovative solutions. Innovations like deposits into our trust account at Inland Revenue without the need for same-day cleared payments or time consuming follow up.

KEY BENEFITS OF TAX TRADERS


No minimum limits

No minimum limits

We’ve removed minimum limits so that New Zealand taxpayers big and small can make deposits and benefit from tax pooling.

Buy or finance tax by instalment

Buy or finance tax by instalment

For optimum flexibility we let you buy or finance tax by instalment, meaning you don’t have to miss out on the savings tax pooling offers when cash flow is tight.

Flexible payment of tax credits

Flexible payment dates

Rather than dictate rigid payment terms, we let you pay on any day of the month (and price this accordingly).

A fairer way to trade

If you finance too much tax, we’ll give back the full finance fee on any tax that’s not required.

Groundbreaking transparency

We were first to quote an interest rate on all transactions, giving taxpayers an effective metric to judge the value they’re receiving.

Automated deposit process

We accept deposits until 10pm on provisional dates without the need for same-day cleared payments, to save you time and reduce transaction risk.

Rate leaders

Since day one we’ve provided taxpayers with more value. We were first to price finance cheaper than purchasing, reduce finance rates by 1.5%, and our buy and sell rates consistently lead the market.
