You can let someone act on your behalf for your Inland Revenue responsibilities. Your nominated person can:

  • contact us and act for you
  • complete and sign your tax returns and other forms
  • receive the information we send to you.

Even though a nominated person can act for you, they cannot use your myIR login.

Who can be a nominated person

A nominated person can be an individual or a separate legal entity. Entities that can be nominated are:

  • companies
  • incorporated societies
  • incorporated charitable trusts.

Partnerships or unincorporated clubs are not separate legal entities, so you cannot nominate them.
