Taxes

These past few days we have been studying and learning about the IRD and Taxes with Miss Wood. Why you may ask? Well this week we have the opportunity to visit Wellington and talk to the people who work for the IRD.  You may be asking what does IRD stand for or what do they do? Well, the IRD stands for Inland Revenue Department, they are responsible for collecting YOUR Taxes!


What Would Happen If No-one Paid their Taxes?
If people didn't pay their taxes things would start to disappear. If you could imagine, people who are poor could be living on the streets. While the rich people would be alright ,  I have found out that India is a country that has poor and rich people living like this at the same time.

For example, mainly poor people would find having a home really hard. I believe that the rich people in India should help with the poor and pay their taxes. This is a lesson that we in New Zealand can learn from.




Last week we got to Interview our Teacher Mr S and a Dental Nurse named Heidi. Hannah and I asked them questions about their Student Loans and Taxes. We made movies with people who knows what Taxes are. 

We interviewed Mr S about his Student Loan.


Then we interviewed Heidi Our Dental Nurse. How do taxes pay for our Dental Clinic?

What are Taxes?

Tax is money that is given to the Government. Did you know that the Government spends money on Schools, Education, the Army, Navy, Dental Clinics, Social Security, Welfare and even Hospitals. Could you imagine a place without people getting into these places? The government collects the money from people in New Zealand who have jobs.

Did you know that Churches also have a kind of Tax. It is usually called Tithing. Churches collect this money to use, for Youth Camps, Chairs in their church and for members who are sick.

GST is another type of tax that takes 15% of what you pay for. It could be clothes, shoes or food. GST stands for Goods and Service Tax.

  4. The Father's Day tradition began as a way to honor one's father. What great gift than that of a photograph representing how much you honor and appreciate him? A fathers day present that involves a photograph can sometimes say much more about how you feel, where words may not.

  14. The reality check for the owner-manager of a business is the perception of and planning for the inevitable transfer of the business interest. The owner and the business will separate, the principal unknown factor is when. If you know who is going to buy your business, you have already dealt with the significant core perception necessary for business strategic planning: that inevitably, voluntarily or involuntarily, you will transfer your business interest. When you approach planning and management with the perspective of a potential buyer, you will see the things that make the sale attractive, and you will be getting to know the buyer of your business. The business will become more valuable and will be sold for a higher price when the inevitable sale must take place. Rather than denying the inevitable will happen, when get cash sale happens, you will have provided for a transfer providing maximum value for your business interest.
