IRD require us to hold signed Authority to Act (ATA) forms for every IRD number we have linked to our tax agency. This is a specific format required by IRD and cannot be woven into our Terms of Engagement.
We have been collecting these over the last few years. We will shortly be following up the outstanding forms by email where we do not have these on file already.
We will also be following these up at your 2021 annual accounts interviews. Please note that we will not file 2021 tax returns until we have the signed ATA on file for the applicable IRD number.
If you receive an email with ATAs for signing, please can you print, sign and return these at your earliest convenience to avoid any delays in meeting your tax commitments. Alternatively, come into the office and we can print these for you to sign.
