    Question Which IRD form do I need to fill out?

    Hi there,

    I am new to the forum so apologies if this is in the wrong place.

    I have been granted a working holiday visa and on my visa grant notification it tells me to apply for IR595 form to obtain my IRD number. However on the form it says resident individual and Category A document overseas passport with a new Zealand residency class visa granted by Immigration new Zealand).

    Is the grant letter incorrect and should I be using form IR742 - Non resident/offshore individual?

    Many thanks for any help

    I hope someone will be along shortly to tell you what they used in your situation. It certainly looks as if it could be an error.

    You do need the IR595 form, IRD number application for individuals. You can get the form from the Post Shop in case you do not have it yet, you do not need to be a resident to get an IRD number, you usually get your IRD number within 10 working days. Hope this helps.

    the IRD website says you should use IR742

    Are you visiting New Zealand using a working holiday visa or another temporary work visa? If you answered yes, you’ll need to get an IRD number....
    Step 2: Complete the right IRD number application form
    Since you have a temporary work visa, you’ll need to fill in an IR742 IRD number application form.
