Missed a tax payment? Pay outstanding tax at a time that suits your cashflow.

If your client hasn’t paid their provisional tax by the due date, you can purchase tax from Tax Traders’ tax pool. Buying tax from the pool will save your client money. It works out to be approximately 35% cheaper than settling a late payment with Inland Revenue (IR) directly.

    How does it work?

    Tax pooling allows you to buy someone else’s tax to settle your client’s outstanding taxes with IR. This is a win-win outcome because the person selling the tax receives more interest than IR’s standard interest rates. It’s a classic example of taxpayers helping each other for mutual advantage. Tax Traders is an IR-approved tax pooling intermediary, and acts like a broker to facilitate this market.

    Tax Traders has tax available to meet liability from 2006 onwards.
