Anyone here in NZ doing IT work employed by an australian company?
Do you pay Australian income tax (PAYG) or NZ (PAYE)?
And what about the Australian superannuation?

Currently I'm contracting my services to an Australian company, they pay my NZ business in AUD, I convert to NZD and then pay myself a NZ wage with NZ PAYE tax through IRD.
But during talks they are thinking of offering to employ me directly as a perm employee based in NZ.

Doing some reading on the web site, but bit confusing soo far regarding non residents and tax.

Would this be it? "Live in NZ but employed in Australia....How's that work??"

Cool thanks, found it:

Need to find about the 9% aussie super now.
I wonder if the aussie company can pay me directly as a sole trader, or if they have to take tax out first in AUD?
