Part of our investments are NZ-listed ordinary shares in several different companies which are owned in our joint names.

 

IRD is very good at allocating our jointly-owned NZ bank Term Deposit interest income, equally between me and Mrs Code. However with the shares, all of the dividend income is recorded in her name - i.e. not allocated between us like the TD income is.

 

Does anyone here have jointly-owned shares and has been successful at getting IRD to split the divs between the owners? I am not sure if this is something that is achievable or maybe IRD just can't/won't do this?

 

I know the allocation can be sorted out in a 'wash-up' if returns are prepared at the end of the tax year - but it would be good if it could be sorted out properly as the divs are received.





Sometimes I just sit and think. Other times I just sit.

Interested in the answer here.

 

As we both are in the same tax bracket currently, it's not a biggie. With the potential drop in incoming going forward, that might make a difference in the tax.

Was just thinking the same when I got my $2.40 already taxed dividend yesterday. We wealthy shareholders.

I'm a chartered accountant and not-so-specific tax advisor. Did you know you can go into MyIR and change the ownership percentage of interest and dividend income?

 

Click into the income type, view detail and then manage income ownership. It doesn't remember this, and it doesn't show up on the other taxpayers side, so you'll have to bring them in to the other taxpayer manually. But it solves the IRD reassessing your return incorrectly if they go BUT YOUVE GOT MORE AND WE CAN SEE IT. 

 

Unfortunately, you'd have to take up the apportioning correctly with the original filer.

@alikat Many thanks - was not aware of that - hadn’t delved deeply enough into MyIR.

 

I’ve now looked at it. Mrs Code is showing all the dividends and 50% ownership is loaded in her account. I have ‘dividends’ loaded as an income type but no div income showing and there’s no way to manually load any. Quite frustrating.

That’s true and is also the case with us. It’s just that I’m a detail freak, a bit OCD on this sort of thing - and have nothing better to do. 😀

 

I’m in the weirdo category of people who actually enjoy doing tax stuff.

Would you like my issue? Someone has given Heartland Bank my IRD number, so now I'm getting income and tax credits that aren't mine, but Heartland Bank won't remove my IRD number from that account despite my asking them several times in writing and on the phone.

You're an accountant! Invoice them for the time spent to clean up your tax records? That might work?

Complain to the Banking Ombudsman here 
And maybe to IRD "Heartland Bank are willfully falsifying my tax returns" here

Resolved. Kernel use Heartland Bank for their high interest on call deposits and Kernel is where I put money aside for my tax bill.
