Record Keeping

September 11, 2020

The IRD requires that you keep sufficient records to be able to calculate your income and expenses and confirm your accounts.  This would include:

- manual cashbooks / ledgers

- computerised accounting system backups

- bank statements, credit card statements, cheque butts, deposit slips

-  buyer created tax invoices / payslips

-  evidence of payment for example receipts and invoices received from suppliers i.e. phone, etc (note not required for spend under $50)

-  motor vehicle logbooks

-  wage records

-  interest and dividend statements

-  legal statements

-  details of calculations for use of home as office

These records (including any in electronic format) need to be retained for at least seven years - even if you cease business activities.
