How can I be sure that there will be tax held on my behalf?

We have appointed Perpetual Trust as trustee to look after your interests and ensure that the tax set aside is held safely and will be transferred to your account with the Inland Revenue when you pay us.

When we make the provisional tax payment, Perpetual Trust will confirm to you that a Tax Deposit has been established in our account at the Inland Revenue and that it will be made available for you to purchase on the agreed date.

Perpetual Trust is the only party authorized to instruct transfers of Tax Deposits out of our account and no-one other than the trustee can access that Tax Deposit while it is available for you to purchase. When you pay us for the Tax Deposit, Perpetual Trust will instruct the IRD to transfer it into your account with the Inland Revenue.

What is the cost of Provisional Tax Finance?

A Finance Charge is payable in either advance or in two instalments in respect of each Tax Deposit. This Finance Charge is calculated by reference to interest rates available on our web site

This cost can be compared to your overdraft rate or the Use of Money Interest rate charged by Inland Revenue. The money is paid into an account with Perpetual Trustees who will not release it until confirmation is received by them that the Tax Deposit has been credited to our account with the Inland Revenue.
