New Zealand is not Tax Haven –Geoffrey Cone

To be listed in the OECD, a nation must not impose or should impose a minimal tax on their citizens, lack transparency, and the government must follow regulations that hinder the exchange of data with other countries. New Zealand does not have the features to be described as a tax harbor. The 2002 OECD Model of Agreement on Exchange of Information on Tax Matters is the gold standard for transparency. The Model Agreement supports the global exchange of data to assist in the management or the implementation of domestic tax law.


New Zealand has been on the forefront in the demonstration of quality leadership when it comes to foreign n trustee. The country has been very transparent in how it handles the foreign trust and thus allowing other governments gain information on the tax trust. Recently Mike Cullen came with new rules that state every New Zealand residence trustee of a foreign trust must submit a Foreign Trust Disclosure Form (IR607) as required by the IRD. The information must be kept in New Zealand to help the government for tax purposes and be stored in English.

My Experience With Securus Confirms Accredited Status

I have a cousin in prison. He’s been bounced around a few prisons over the last few months so calling him has been a nightmare. Most of the prisons that he has been in have been serviced by a telephone company called Global Tel-Link. They have been the worst. Their calls are terrible, like a bad connection over the internet, and the calls often drop.


But he has recently been put into a jail serviced by a different telecommunications company and it’s made all the difference. I can actually even video chat with him now which is awesome. And the crazy thing is that I had to pay a cancellation fee to Global Tel-Link when I closed my account with them. Good riddance.


But talking to my cuz through Securus is a massive upgrade. Setting up an account with them was super easy. I just went to their website and setup an account online. I can even schedule our video chats through the online account. And when I had some questions, their customer service was incredible.


I was so impressed that I went looking the company up on the internet. Turns out that they recently built this massive customer service call center that has 220 seats. They answer calls in an average of 11 seconds and most complaints are solved on the first call, like 99.9% of the time. And it is this customer service that has earned them an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau.


The BBB also accredits companies but the company has to volunteer and pay for the inspection. Turns out that Securus went through this process and was accredited in March. I wish Global Tel-Link would go through something like this. It might actually change them for the better. They should follow Securus’s awesome lead.
