Knowing it’s all taken care of – before Christmas!

There is nothing quite like your clients’ provisional tax obligations to bring you back to work (and reality) from your summer break. So why not get ahead and enjoy the summer!

Some accountants that we work with prefer to get a head start by sending out provisional tax reminder letters before the holidays begin, to help ensure clients get plenty of notice.

Next year, the 15th of January falls on a Sunday, so payment will be due on the following Monday (16th January). Given the lead-up to Christmas is usually a hectic time of year for many accountants and their clients, now is the perfect time to provide your clients with flexible tax payment options for them to consider (and arrange!) prior to the summer break.

Your clients can delay tax payments by up to 15 months (from the 16th of January), as well as mitigate any Inland Revenue late payment penalties and/or use of money interest, by paying their tax via Tax Traders. This is a great way to give yourself some breathing space, as well as adding value to your clients and providing them with cash flow flexibility.

To assist you and your clients during this time of year, we have developed a range of tools to help you share the benefits of tax pooling with your clients. These include templates and resources to help communicate the 16th January tax payment date, as well as suggested wording to explain tax pooling for different channels such as email, letters, and social media.
