The Inland Revenue Department in New Zealand released an alert named RE 10/02 on December 12th 2010 relating to the use of Cloud Computing and storage of business data. To extract the relevant section, the alert warns New Zealand businesses; “It is the Commissioner’s view that only business records stored in data centres physically located in New Zealand will comply with the record keeping obligations in the Inland Revenue Acts. Taxpayers are responsible for ensuring they comply with their record keeping obligations. Therefore, taxpayers using a cloud computing service will need to be satisfied that all their business records will be stored in data centres located in New Zealand” http://www.ird.govt.nz/technical-tax/revenue-alerts/revenue-alert-ra1002.html
This means anyone using a cloud based accounting solution or storage of business financial data in an online storage location outside of New Zealand is technically in breach of IRD regulations.
