Consultation

The Government is seeking feedback on proposals to extend an existing information sharing agreement between Inland Revenue and the New Zealand Police to include the Serious Fraud Office and the New Zealand Customs Service.

The existing information sharing agreement enables Inland Revenue to provide information, under certain criteria, to help detect, prevent and prosecute serious crime.

 Submissions close on 30 October 2018.

For more information see the Ministers’ media statement, questions and answers, and the discussion document (including the draft agreement and a summary).
