Hi to our Clients,

CHRISTMAS/NEW YEAR HOLIDAY BREAK
We are closing for the Christmas/New year’s break on Thursday the 23rd of December at the end of the business day.
We are re-opening on Monday the 10th of January 2022 at 9am.
2021 has been a very difficult year for everyone especially Business.
For some of us, this Christmas and New Year can’t come soon enough, here’s hoping for a better year in 2022!
GET YOUR WORK TO US !
We need our Clients to get their information for the year ended the 31st March 2020 to the 1st April 2021 to us as soon as possible so that we can complete your end of year accounts.
From the 6th of December you will be able to drop it off at the KTS office if needed.
In order for us to complete your end of year accounts by the deadline of 31st March 2022, we need to receive them at least 3/4 weeks before our closing date of the 22nd December.
We will get very busy over this time, so it’s a good idea to get your records to us as soon as possible
THE TRAFFIC LIGHT SYSTEM
As most of our Clients will already know, we move to the traffic light system at 11.59 pm on Thursday 2nd December 2021.
Do you know the requirements for your Business under each of the traffic light colours?
Here is a shortcut for you to read about it and see what is needed for your business.
FAST Covid-19 TESTS AVAILABLE FOR BUSINESSES
Rapid antigen tests are an option for businesses in their response to COVID-19.
They’re not mandatory and won’t be suitable for everyone.
From 1 December, businesses who want to use rapid antigen testing at their workplaces will be able to buy them directly from authorised suppliers.
CHECKING CUSTOMERS PROOF OF VACCINATION
Businesses can choose whether to require customers to have My Vaccine Passes as a condition of entry.
For some businesses, this decision will affect the rules they must operate under.
If your business needs to check customers’ proof of vaccination status, you can use the free NZ Pass Verifier app.
