I'm currently in Melbourne, but returning to Wellington in early July. When I gave notice yesterday I was made an interesting offer....to continue my job in some regard, but to be based in Wellington and work remotely.
I'm not adverse to the idea, but I am curious as to how the personal income tax would work in this situation. I've read the info on the IRD website, and called them as well. But with a 45 minute wait and calling from a mobile in Oz, I couldn't wait around to get through to them. I emailed them as well so will see what they say.
In the meantime I thought I'd check and see if anyone on GZ has any experience with an arrangement like I've been offered. I understand NZ and Oz have a Double Tax Agreement, meaning I think I would only be taxed once...however I'm unsure which country is responsible for the taxation, etc.
If anyone can provide info based on their experience I'd appreciate it.
