For businesses in New Zealand, Microsoft Advertising is required to charge the New Zealand Goods and Services Tax (NZ GST) on advertising services unless you provide your NZ GST registration number. If you provide your NZ GST registration number, Microsoft Advertising will apply NZ GST at 0%. If you do not provide your NZ GST registration number, Microsoft Advertising is required to charge 15% NZ GST.
Microsoft Advertising cannot provide guidance on tax. Please contact your tax advisor or local tax office if you have questions.
You can provide your New Zealand GST registration number when you sign up for Microsoft Advertising and each time you create a new account. The registration number will appear on your billing documents.
How you edit your NZ GST registration number depends on whether you have one account or multiple accounts.
If you have multiple accounts, you can update the NZ GST registration number for more than one account at a time as long as the accounts are similar (same Customer ID and account type).
