Common Questions

Absolutely not!

Creating your WooHoo account is free! And there's no monthly fees to worry about either.

If you're required to file an IR3, your dedicated Case Manager will be in touch with you directly to discuss your individual needs and which of our tax return packages is the best fit for you.

If it does turn out that you do only need to submit a Personal Tax Summary (PTS) for a tax refund, our system will automatically submit your PTS to IRD and get the tax refund released. When this occurs our standard 19.5% tax refund fee will be applied.

We'd love to say yes but really, it depends.

Everyone's tax circumstances are unique which means we can't guarantee everyone a refund, but you can trust that our dedicated team will work with you to maximise your tax position. This may result in a tax refund, or it may work out that we reduce your tax bill instead.

Choosing WooHoo for your tax needs also means you've got us on your side when it comes to handling any penalties, interest, or payment plans with IRD. WooHoo!

We've built four different packages to suit our tax return customers:

  • Part-Year - 19.5% of any tax refund claimed
  • Lite - $100
  • Standard - from $250
  • Rental - from $350

There are add-ons available for the Standard and Rental packages, allowing you to increase the volume of transactions or documents to be processed, additional tax calculations, or for other items like multiple properties.

Your Case Manager will be in touch to discuss your individual needs before starting your tax return.

A complete list of all our fees is available here. All prices include GST and apply per return.

Our packages are built to meet your individual needs.

  • If you've received schedular payments (instead of regular wages or salary) and you haven't incurred any work-related expenses that you'd like to claim for, our $100 Lite Package is just right for you.
  • If you're a freelancer, sole trader, or earning any sort of untaxed income, our $250 Standard Package is the option you need to meet your legal requirements. This package allows you to declare your untaxed earnings and also claim on any business-related expenses you've incurred.
  • Own rental property, or run a B&B or holiday home? You'll be after our $350 Rental Package. This includes the required calculations for the first property, and you can add subsequent properties to this package for just $150 each.

More information on our tax return packages and add-ons is available here.

We currently accept the following:

  • Direct Bank Transfer
  • Payment by Cheque

We recommend that you pay by direct bank transfer – it's the safest and easiest way. In the event you are invoiced, all the payment details will be made available on the invoice.

There are some other service-related fees to be aware of:

  • Cheque Fee - $5
