Tax & Māori authorities
As a trust, incorporation or other entity which is subject to our Act, you can apply for Māori Authority status from the Inland Revenue Department.
Being a Māori Authority for tax purposes reduces your provisional tax rate from 33% to 17.5% - although it does come with certain responsibilities around maintaining a tax credit account.
For more information you can contact Inland Revenue who can discuss the benefits and responsibilities of becoming a Māori Authority for tax purposes.
