      Great thread Steve, but getting a mite out of date now.

      Any updates to The Steve Goodey Story that you'd care to share?

        There's loads of updates but alas IRD seem to read this thread more then up and coming investors and so I have become shy.

          I like this part.

          And congratulations on your journey so far.

            This has me thinking Steve, is it an assumption or do you have any facts?

                Perhaps we should print this out and confront them with it......

                IRD has 'lost' 106 computers

                The Inland Revenue Department doesn't know where 106 of its computers are.

                National Party MP Gerry Brownlee revealed the IRD's plight yesterday, releasing an official response to a parliamentary question:

                "Inland Revenue holds 8488 desktop and laptop computers. As at April 2006, 106 (1.2 per cent) of these computers could not be located, 32 of these were deemed to be obsolete. This number is expected to reduce in the future due to the implementation of additional tracking software."

                Mr Brownlee said he wanted to know what security protocols were loaded on the computers, whether there was the potential for a wider compromise of the IRD system, and how much personal and private information was at risk.

                "To say that there will be improvements after 106 computers have already gone walkabout understates the seriousness of the potential breach," he said in a statement.

                    I think Steve's recent experience is indicative of a strategy being administered by IRD. I have numerous LO students ringing and emailing because of being interrogated regarding their purchases.
                    On the one hand I think IRD has to ensure they are not being scammed re GSt refunds etc. On the other hand they are asking information that is often irrelevent to the issue. One of my associates was being grilled over when they would sell their reno. The response, "I don't know until I complete the renovation and advertise and get it sold" was considered unacceptable and they are still fighting to get their refund, which is entirely unfair in this case.

                    So unfortunately we in NZ are being caught in a situation where the market is becoming more sophisticated and IRD are having to try and come to terms with that. SOmetimes, (Steve), the innocent are presumed guilty . This could happen to any number of us. Only scrupulous attention to detail and impeccable documentation will suffice from here on in.
                    And those of us who resent paying for good advice and apply the number 8 wire system will more than likely suffer!!

                      Great story Steve, it's the first time I have read it.

                      I like your style. Reno is something I think I could do, and indeed hope to do in the near future on return to NZ.

                      That is alarming about the IRD. It serves as a warning not to make any flippant comments regarding income or taxation, even in jest.
