Tax certificates


Your tax certificate tells you how much distributable income you received or were owed, and the management fee on this income. It also shows you how much tax has been withheld and paid to IRD on your behalf. If you have distributable income Te Tumu Paeroa is obligated to send you a tax certificate.

The amount listed in the tax certificate is the total amount of distributable income for all entities and individuals under Te Tumu Paeroa’s administration. If you receive distributable income, it is a proportion of this total based on how much money you held in the Common Fund at the end of each month.

You can request a tax certificate from past years but it costs $30 for the first requested year, and $10 for each additional year requested. This can be paid via credit card or through internet banking. Unfortunately we don’t accept cheques.

Distributable income

Distributable income is a share of the income received from all Common Fund investments less the management fees. The base management fee is currently set at 0.75% of the market value of the Common Fund. This fee is in line with the fee other fund managers’ charge for managing similar investments.

Distributable income is calculated monthly and based on the balance of your Te Tumu Paeroa client account on the last day of each month. It makes up a proportion of the total amount of funds held in the Common Fund.

Te Tumu Paeroa makes payments to clients’ bank accounts monthly when the amount meets certain minimum payment thresholds. Currently our threshold is $2.
