Chris The Lawyer, Expert

Hi
I am a New Zealand lawyer based in Wellington and will help you with your question today. Please give me a minute to read your question

Chris The Lawyer, Expert

If you are a citizen then you can buy a property even if you are not living here currently. The restrictions do not apply to citizens. If you buy the property you will have to pay rates to the local council but you will not be liable for any other tax
Customer
if I buy the house n let my daughter live, besides have to pay the rates, shall my oversea income need to pay tax
img

Chris The Lawyer, Expert

No because you are not living here. It is only if you are domiciled in New Zealand that you would pay tax here
Customer
sorry I cant hear well,i prefer type

Chris The Lawyer, Expert

Don’t worry about the phone call
Customer
if I have a will that I give the house to my daughter after death,? need to pay tax,also tax based on what amount
img

Chris The Lawyer, Expert

There is no inheritance tax in New Zealand so she would not pay any tax.
Customer
can I buy the house in both names,I mean with my husband
img

Chris The Lawyer, Expert

If he is not a citizen then that would require applying for consent from the Overseas Investment Office. It may be easier just in your name
Customer
if I go to visit my daughter in future, how long I can stay in order not to pay my overseas income tax
img

Chris The Lawyer, Expert

As long as you pay your usual tax in Hong Kong you will not be liable for tax in New Zealand unless you settle here permanently
Customer
if I come to NZ to visit my daughter how many days I can stay in order not to become an NZ tax resident
img

Chris The Lawyer, Expert

You can stay for a long time but it depends on whether you pay tax in New Zealand, which would make you tax resident

Customer
if I stay less than 183 days within a yr, does it mean no need to be taxed
img

Chris The Lawyer, Expert

Yes

Customer
