Invoicing in New Zealand.

If you have a registered business you’ll need to make sure your invoicing process is compliant with the tax and other legislation in your home country. If you’re selling internationally, the rules in the country you’re selling to may also impact the information you must include in an invoice.

Different countries have slightly different rules about the information that must be captured in an invoice.

If your business is registered for Goods and Services Tax (GST) in New Zealand, you have to offer a GST-compliant sales invoice with every transaction. This will show the price of goods and services including GST, and all the details your customer may need to claim GST credits for their business.

New Zealand VAT tax information on invoices.

The equivalent to VAT in New Zealand is called the goods and services tax (GST). GST applies to goods at each stage of the supply chain, with the costs being passed on to the end consumer. The seller collects this tax on behalf of the government and pays it to the relevant tax authorities according to the tax filing process in place locally.

In New Zealand, the tax authority responsible for VAT/GST collection and reclaim is called Inland Revenue.

FAQ about creating an invoice.

What is an invoice?

An invoice is an itemized bill, issued by anyone selling goods or services. An invoice will detail the agreed prices or fees,
and list out the products or services that have been provided. Upon receipt, the buyer will settle the invoice.

Invoices have a practical purpose - making sure you get paid for goods or services you’ve provided a customer. They can
also help to create a professional impression, and build client relationships, as well as acting as a legal record of sales made.

Can I edit my New Zealand invoices?

Yes. Simply edit the information in our free invoice generator tool and add your own company logo to give a professional
finish. Create your PDF New Zealand invoice when you’re ready - and continue to edit your invoice with a PDF editor tool if you need to.

You can also get a fully customizable solution by using our invoice templates which come in Google Docs, Google sheets,
Word, Excel, PDF and Open Office formats.

Can I change the currency on the invoice?

Choose the currency you’re billing in by simply selecting it in the New Zealand invoice maker. Then get paid into your Wise Business
account to cut currency conversion fees and keep more of your hard earned cash.

Can I put my own logo on the invoice?

Yes, our free invoice maker lets you add your own company logo. Just select the logo box in the top right corner, and upload
your logo or drag and drop it into place. Both JPG and PNG images are supported.

How do I send my New Zealand VAT/no VAT invoice?

Create an invoice in our invoice generator and easily download a PDF copy. You can then attach it to your email or message
to your client.

If you send a link to your customer, they can download or print the invoice from the link - with no need to wait for the mail to arrive.

Can I set up recurring invoices?

It’s not possible to set up recurring invoices at the moment. That’s because the invoice generator works separate from your
Wise user account and no data is saved when you use it.

Can I create invoices in different languages?

At the moment the invoice generator only creates invoices in English.

However, we have great free invoice templates available in 6 different languages - English, French, German, Spanish, Japanese
and Cantonese. Pick the language and the format you need and create an invoice in just a few moments.
