NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 13/05/2017

Labour is promising to change the tax system if it wins the election to one that's based on "simplicity and fairness".

Finance spokesman Grant Robertson told the party's congress on Saturday a fresh approach was needed.

"If we want a fair share of prosperity for all New Zealanders then we need a better, more balanced and fairer tax system," he said.

"We are determined to get this right - that is why we are establishing a tax working group in government.

"It will have a mandate to develop a system that has the values of simplicity, fairness and collectability where multinationals pay their fair share, where income, assets and wealth are all treated fairly."
