Members only
ICNZB Online Event, Online, 0000


Following the introduction of Registered Bookkeeper status with Inland Revenue in April 2019, we have continued to receive positive feedback from our members on how this benefits them and their clients.

Registered bookkeepers can easily act and communicate with Inland Revenue on behalf of their clients, which makes it easier to stay on top of your clients’ tax positions and offer them a seamless service. Using an existing myIR login, the bookkeeper will have a single log on to access all of their clients, receive notifications and correspondence, and be able to file returns and update client details all in one place.

Interested to find out more?

The team from Inland Revenue will be presenting webinars for our members to deliver more information on how to register as a bookkeeper, including what documentation you will need, and talk about all the benefits that you receive from registering.

This session will include screenshots to demonstrate the different functions available you to in your myIR login once registered, as well as provide you the opportunity to ask Inland Revenue representatives direct questions.

To find out more ahead of these webinars, please refer to Inland Revenue website here >.

This session will include question and answer time. If you have a specific question you would like answered, please submit this ahead of time to
