Willing Workers on Organic Farms (WWOOF)

This is an arrangement in which overseas travellers volunteer 4 to 6 hours labour per day in exchange for food, accommodation and the opportunity to learn about sustainable living.

Immigration NZ see these arrangements as paid work and as such require participants to hold an 'open' work visa. The value of the food and accommodation should be treated as wages for the volunteer and PAYE returned. The PAYE would most likely be at the no notification rate as many WWOOFers will not have an IRD number.

If you require further information on these topics please contact our office.

 

Taxation of shearers

When employing a shearer or shed hand the two tax codes to be declared on the tax code declaration form (IR330) are CAE or WT.

  • The casual agricultural employee (CAE) tax code is used when a person is employed on a day to day basis for up to three months (any longer they are a standard employee).
    • Tax is deducted using the current PAYE calculator.
  • Withholding tax (WT) is required to be deducted if a shearing contractor is employed. This deduction is not required if a current certificate of exemption is presented.
    • Withholding tax is deducted at the current rate. At present this is 15% if a tax declaration form has been provided or 30% if not.

In both cases the employee must complete an IR330 Tax declaration form.
