What is provisional tax?
Provisional tax is income tax that you pay in bits throughout the year (as opposed to paying it in lump sum at the end of the year or through PAYE). If you pay it, it’s typically because you had more than $2,500 to pay Inland Revenue at the end of the previous tax year.
Once you’ve filed your annual tax return, Inland Revenue compares what you’ve paid with the amount you are required to pay, based on your actual profit for the year. You’ll either get a refund or be required to pay any difference. Check out our Help Centre for more information on different tax types.
How much do you charge?
As each business is so different, we don’t offer you an off the shelf solution - we target a plan to work with you and your business, depending on your goals and challenges. Our business advisors can provide you with a quote after meeting with you and having a chat about your specific needs.
For example, you might need us to look after your accounts, support you in your business with monthly meetings, as well as doing your bookkeeping. All of these services have a different cost depending on the size of your business and where you are based. But don’t forget that as part of being a RightWay customer, you will also be getting a Xero subscription at a reduced cost included in your package, and that’s just one of the perks!
