It is often frustrating for clients wanting to apply for a loan that one of the requirements is to provide evidence of your past income. Did you know you can access this yourself online using the IRD website?
I have recently helped several clients set up a free online account at IRD and obtain past tax summaries. All you will need is your IRD tax number.
This is what you do: Click on the link below:
ird register a login
Follow the instructions, which take about 1 minute to complete.
Then make the call to the IRD direct line (yes believe it or not, they answer it quickly!). They will help activate the account, and then you are all good to go.
You will need an access code, and password. Using the theory of keeping things simple I was able to use an access code and password that I use for internet banking….and of course…as with all access codes and passwords, you do need to keep these details confidential.
