The following tax requirements take effect on 1 July 2017.
For businesses in New Zealand, Bing Ads 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, Bing Ads will apply NZ GST at 0%. If you do not provide your NZ GST registration number, Bing Ads is required to charge 15% NZ GST.
Bing Ads 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 Bing Ads and each time you create a new account. The registration number will appear on your billing documents (after 1 July 2017).
If you are a monthly invoice customer, please contact your account manager or contact support to update your NZ GST registration number. Otherwise, how you edit your NZ GST registration number depends on whether you have one prepay/postpay threshold account or multiple prepay/postpay threshold 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).
