BNZ Tax avoidance decision

The BNZ has confirmed that it has filed a notice to appeal the High Court’s decision in BNZ Investments Limited v C of IR. The High Court had ruled that the bank’s use of six structured finance transactions between 1998 and 2005 was tax avoidance – see James Coleman’s posting below.
