Accountants frustrated with sluggish IRD processing

From Nine To Noon, 9:09 am on 28 June 2018

Accountants tell of their continuing frustrations with the Inland Revenue's website. They say the site is sluggish and over the last two weeks has caused huge angst for them and their clients - with many not being able to log on to the online MyIR tax system at all.

John Cuthbertson from Chartered Accountants, Australia New Zealand, and Tax Principal with a financial services company Craig Macalister join Kathryn to talk through the latest issues.
