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 dealing with wine was made.
- 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.
The maximum rebate you can claim for a financial year is A$500,000.
If you are an associated producer of one or more other producers (they may include Australian producers and New Zealand producers), the maximum rebate you are entitled to as a group for a financial year is A$500,000.
- 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.
