Well yesterday I finally bit the bullet and paid my tax owing for the 2008 and it hurt my bank account a lot. So this morning I was just reading up about tax havens D) and I came across the interesting tax incentive that the NZ government offers, and I just wanted to see if any accountants on these forums could help shed some light on the topic for me. Here's the details of what I read: Temporary tax exemption for foreign income - Working In New Zealand So my question relates to some of my income sources, and whether they'd be exempt. So I run a few different websites which collect a significant amount of advertising revenues each month. I also earn a significant amount of commission payments from sales and leads that are generated by sites that I run and own as well as commission payments from companies which have hired me as a consultant for their companies and have paid me via a commission structure. So I'm wondering how the accountants think the foreign income from my advertising sales and my commission payments would be classified under the NZ foreign income tax exemption?
