Who are we?


We're NZ Tax Refunds and there's no prizes for guessing what that means. We help New Zealanders get back the tax they've overpaid. By using us, you're choosing not to lose!

We know that getting your WooHoo is what you're after when you hitch your wagon to us, we also pride ourselves on being the best in the industry and offering ‘more than you might expect' every day.

We're already trusted by hundreds of thousands of customers throughout New Zealand, so we know we're doing something very right!

We reckon part of our success is due to our hearts being in the right place. We were founded by the most fabulous big-hearted Accountant you're ever likely to meet – Cilla Hegarty. Before she started NZ Tax Refunds, she used to handle the tax returns for all the clients in her Accountancy practice. Time after time she discovered her clients were overpaying their tax and she didn't see this as a particularly fair state of affairs. So being a good Kiwi chick, she did something about it and started this!

What do we do?


When you complete our online application form for your IRD tax refund, we become your registered tax agent with the Inland Revenue. This allows us to process your tax refund and return your money to you each year. If you're not owed a tax refund from Inland Revenue, then there's no fee. We can also claim your donations tax credit for you at the same time.

Let us help you, too!


How do we do it?

Are you due a tax refund in NZ from the IRD? Fill out our online application form and you could find out in just 60 seconds* if you are entitled to claim some of your tax back!

For us to find out if you're owed a refund, we just need a few of your details including your IRD Number and Photo ID (ie. drivers licence). 60 seconds* after completing the online tax refund application form you'll know how much your refund is.

If you've given us your bank account details then we can deposit it directly into your bank account, less our fees, within 3 business days, in most cases.
