Assignment on Newzealand Taxation


Part A – Scenario

Michael and Pam

Michael and Pam live on a lifestyle block in Pokeno. They purchased their lifestyle block in

June 2004. Michael and Pam have rented out 2 rooms to boarders since December 2013.

They advertise the room availability on AirBnB. Each boarder pays $180 per week (including

meals and laundry). Pam pays for a cleaner to come two times a week for $85 per week. Her

total grocery bill is $300 per week.

Pam’s Pottery Store

Pam’s hobby is making pottery. She has modified a small shed on the lifestyle block so that

she can display more of the pieces that she makes. Her friend Mary helps with gardening and

working at the ‘Pottery shed’. Pam pays Mary $50 per week for gardening on the weekend

and allows her to take any of the pieces from the store. Pam also provided Mary with a new

pair of overalls which cost $80. Every Sunday Mary works extra hours to make tea and

coffee for visitors to the ‘Pottery Shed’. While working Mary is also provided with lunch.

Pam has been told there is a demand for large glazed pots. But in order to make the pots she

will need to invest in more equipment costing $1500. She has also received a letter from the

local council asking her if she is conducting a business activity and whether she is complying

with regulations around parking and resource consents.

Future Plans for Cottage Accommodation

Last year Michael became a beneficiary of a trust settled by his father. This year he will

receive a payment of trust funds. Michael would like to invest the funds in a business.

Michael and Pam are thinking of setting up a cottage accommodation business on their

lifestyle block. So far they have signed up to attend a Tourism Conference in Queenstown,

(which will run for 3 hours), and asked an architect friend to draw up some plans to place 6

‘cottages’ on their lifestyle block. In return for the plans the architect was given 3 large

pottery pieces for his garden valued at $350.

Michael and Pam may construct the cottages and then sell or lease the cottages to another

company to run an accommodation business. Michael is quite keen on the idea as his father

used to work as a builder. Michael intends to also carry out some of the building work
