Online CPD Module


A new withholding tax will have significant implications for both property lawyers and their offshore clients. This new withholding tax, called residential land withholding tax, applies from 1 July 2016 to offshore persons who sell residential land within two years of acquisition.

A panel of three experts (an Inland Revenue representative, a tax lawyer and a property law specialist) will help you understand when this new withholding tax applies and what it means for you and your clients.

The presentation will cover:

  • Why the new withholding tax has been introduced
  • When the new withholding tax applies
  • How the new withholding tax ties in with the two-year bright-line test
  • How the new withholding tax is calculated and collected
  • What information property lawyers need to obtain to comply with the new rules
  • What new forms need to be completed, and by whom and when
  • How the new withholding tax will apply in practice
  • Practical implications for property lawyers
  • How property lawyers can manage risk.

Learning objectives

After this module you will be able to:

  • Understand when and how the tax will apply.
  • Know what forms are to be completed, by whom and when.
  • Have a good understanding of the practical implications.
