  • Claiming your producer rebate

    Once you are approved as a New Zealand participant, you can claim your rebate after the end of the financial year (1 July to 30 June) in which both of the following occurred:

    • the wine was exported to Australia
    • WET was paid.

    You must make your claim within four years from when you became entitled to your rebate.

    Your claim must total at least A$200. Claims can be aggregated to reach the A$200 minimum.

    For the financial year ending 30 June 2018, the maximum rebate you can claim is A$500,000. From 1 July 2018, the maximum rebate you can claim for a financial year is A$350,000.

    If you are an associated producer of one or more other producers (they may include Australian producers and New Zealand producers), the maximum rebate amount you can claim each financial year applies to the group of associated producers.

    If you are unsure whether you are an associated producer, contact New Zealand Inland Revenue on 0800 377 774.

    The New Zealand wine producer rebate is assessable income for New Zealand income tax purposes. You must report it on your New Zealand tax return in the income year in which you receive it.
