Baby IRD num­bers

Central Leader - - NEWS -

Par­ents reg­is­ter­ing the birth of their baby can also now ap­ply for their child’s IRD num­ber.

Par­ents can get an IRD num­ber for their new baby by tick­ing a box, and sup­ply­ing a small amount of ex­tra in­for­ma­tion on the Birth Regis­tra­tion form.

‘‘The ad­van­tage is that once par­ents have an IRD num­ber they can ap­ply for Work­ing for Fam­i­lies tax cred­its, Ki­wiSaver or open a bank ac­count for the child,’’ Rev­enue Min­is­ter Todd McClay says.
